Firm named as one of the top law firms for female attorneys by Law360’s 2019 Glass Ceiling Report
DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The national law firm of Baron & Budd is pleased to announce it was ranked as one of the best law firms for female attorneys. Law360’s 2019 Glass Ceiling report looks at law firms based on their attorney headcount and ranks them by their percentage of female partners and nonpartners. Law360 says it lists the 70 firms “who are leading the pack in representing women at all levels.”
Law360’s research indicates that women represent only 36.3% of attorneys at firms and women represent only 24.8% of partners, which suggests fewer women are rising through the ranks. Of the 25 shareholders at Baron & Budd, nearly one third are women. The firm currently has 58 attorneys that are not shareholders. Of those attorneys, 25 are women.
“While we are very proud to make this list, we know there is always room for improvement and we hope to keep climbing up the rankings by continuing to hire extremely talented and qualified women to represent our firm,” said Baron and Budd president and managing shareholder, Russell Budd. “We hope to continue to be an example of gender diversity in this industry and let women know that they have equal access to the path of success.”
