Seramount Recognizes Shook Among Best Law Firms for Women and Diversity

Seramount has selected Shook among its 2024 list of Best Law Firms for Women and Diversity. Shook has been recognized as a Best Law Firm for Women 14 times since the list’s inception in 2007, which earns the firm a place in the Hall of Fame.

Each year, Seramount surveys law firms to assess how they utilize best practices to recruit, retain, develop and advance lawyers who are women, people of color and those from under-represented groups. Shook is led by Madeleine McDonough who is now in her second term as firm chair. The firm also recently announced 12 new partners, of which half were women or diverse attorneys. Women or diverse lawyers lead Shook’s Chicago, Hartford, Houston, Philadelphia and Tampa offices. 

For more than a decade, Seramount (formerly Working Mother Magazine) has recognized United States law firms that lead the charge for DEI in the legal industry.
