Working Mother Recognizes Shook Among Best Law Firms for Women

Working Mother magazine selected Shook, Hardy & Bacon for its prestigious list of the 2019 “60 Best Law Firms for Women.” Led by Chair Madeleine McDonough, this is the eighth time in the past dozen years Shook has earned the honor.

New this year: the magazine noted Shook’s inaugural “Diversity Sponsor Award” created by the firm’s Junior Women’s Management Council. The firm recognizes an attorney who mentors women and diverse attorneys by providing opportunities for growth, leadership, advancement and visibility. In 2019, Partner Adrienne Byard earned the accolade.

“Shook is proactively leading the charge to enhance a culture that benefits the firm for all employees,” stated Shook Chair Madeleine McDonough. “Adrienne is an exemplary selection for the honor, a dedicated lawyer passionate about mentoring others and paving the way for the next generation. We’re honored Working Mother recognized our efforts, and we hope to inspire other firms to develop similar programs within their organizations.”
