Shook Scores High Ranking in Law360's 2018 Glass Ceiling Report

Law360 has ranked Shook, Hardy & Bacon among the top law firms nationwide in its 2018 Glass Ceiling Report. In "The Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys," Law360 said, "the firms on this list are proving that gender diversity pledges can move toward becoming workplace realities." 

More than 300 firms were surveyed for the annual report. To be included, firms had to report above-average representation of female attorneys in both partner and nonpartner categories. In Shook's tier—300 to 599 lawyers—only eight firms were ranked.

The report said, "[w]omen still represent just over one-third of all attorneys in private practice . . . That number has remained consistent over the past five law firm surveys." And when it comes to elite positions within firms, "women represent only 24 percent of all partners—both equity and nonequity—and just over 20 percent of equity partners."
