"We are proud to be named once again a 2018 Working Mother Best
Law Firm for Women," said Ken Cutler, Dorsey's Managing Partner. "We are
committed to being a women-friendly workplace and having the policies
and infrastructure in place to enable our attorneys to manage their
professional and personal lives in the way that works best for them. We
believe this benefits our lawyers, the Firm as a whole, and, most
importantly, our clients."

The full list of the 2018 Working Mother Best
Law Firms
for Women is posted here
and highlights law firms where on average almost half of associates and
more than a third of partners are women, while one-fifth of equity
partners are women. These firms also increasingly offer extended
parental-leave benefits and encourage more lawyers to work remotely and
use flexible hours.

"The law firms that make Working Mother's list are remarkable for
their long-term commitment to retaining and promoting women lawyers,"
said Meredith Bodgas, editor-in-chief of Working Mother. "One hundred
percent of these firms provide flexible work arrangements and 57 percent
of them offer sponsorship programs for high-potential women lawyers.
That's resulted in a jump in the number of women equity partners to 21
percent."
