WSHB ranked tenth in Law360’s list of “100 Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys,” a survey published based on the firm's female representation at the partner and non-partner levels and its total number of female attorneys.
According to Law360, “For the firms that nabbed spots on the list, the number of women at all levels of the firm shows that firm leaders are finding some new ways to open doors and increase diversity."
While WSHB is one of the country’s fastest growing firms, it is also one of the most diverse. Approximately 41% of WSHB attorneys are female, 35% of WSHB partners are female, and 23% of WSHB attorneys are diverse.
“WSHB does not simply give lip-service when it comes to diversity for female associates and partners,” said Janice Michaels, managing partner of WSHB’s Las Vegas office. “Female lawyers at WSHB are on equal footing with their male counterparts, whether it’s trial experience, mentoring or expanding professional opportunities. It is a great environment to learn and grow without the impediment of a glass-ceiling.”
Law360 ranked firms by examining a variety of factors, including the percentage of partners, both equity and non-equity, who are women, the percentage of associate-level attorneys who are women, and the divide between each category.
