Nutter Ranked Among 100 Best Law Firms for Female AttorneysPrint PDF
Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP has been ranked 28th in the nation in Law360’s inaugural list of the 100 Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys. Nutter was among the firms bucking the findings of Law360’s 2015 Glass Ceiling Report, which found that just 33 percent of all attorneys at U.S. law firms —and a scant 22 percent of partners—are women.
The survey measured female representation at the partner and non-partner levels and its total number of female attorneys at 308 U.S. firms or vereins with a U.S. component. Firms were ranked based on four factors: (1) the percentage of partners, equity and nonequity, who are women, (2) the percentage of nonpartners who are women, (3) the split between the firm's female partner percentage and female nonpartner percentage, and (4) the number of female attorneys at the firm.
“At Nutter the goal is and always has been to recruit, hire, invest in and retain the very best legal talent. We are delighted but not surprised that this results in a professional team on which women are well represented," said Deborah J. Manus, Nutter’s managing partner. "We believe the Law360 ranking speaks to Nutter’s continuing commitment to fostering a more diverse and inclusive workplace at every level."
Having received top ranking in The American Lawyer survey for associate lawyer satisfaction six years in a row, Nutter provides hires with an array of career growth opportunities and support. Attorneys receive extensive training, mentoring and other support needed to grow into effective practitioners. Other benefits include after-hour support services, and assistance with child care and elder care resources.
