Hanson Bridgett LLP Ranked #4 Top Law Firm for Female Attorneys

April 23, 2015 (SAN FRANCISCO, CA) — We are pleased to announce we have been named as a top law firm for female attorneys by Law360. Hanson Bridgett ranked #4 out of 100. This is Law360’s inaugural survey ranking the 100 best U.S. law firms for women, based on the firm's female representation at the partner and nonpartner levels and its total number of female attorneys. Firms are ranked based on four factors: 1) the percentage of partners, both 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.

In addition, the firm was also named as one of 25 “Ceiling Smashers.” This year’s Ceiling Smashers are the 25 U.S.-based law firms out of more than 300 surveyed that have the highest percentage of female partners, including equity and nonequity partners.

Diversity is a core component of the firm. We are dedicated to establishing a workforce that reflects the needs and interests of our clients and a work environment that provides opportunities for people with varied backgrounds. Our commitment begins with the law schools where we seek to recruit diverse candidates and support the needs of minority students. Within our industry we play a leading role in organizations committed to increasing diversity in the profession such as the California Minority Counsel Program (CMCP), Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD), and Bay Area Lawyers for Individual Freedom (BALIF) and seek to provide meaningful support to bar and community organizations that assist underrepresented communities.

While the firm has always encouraged and supported women attorneys to attend events targeted to women, the firm also launched Hanson Bridgett Women’s Impact Network or HBWIN, now in its fifth year. HBWIN’s initiatives involve regular meetings of all women attorneys in the firm, including women summer associates, and provides mentoring and support to women while they advance through their careers.
