Quantitative survey results rank MG+M as one of just 62 U.S. law firms outpacing our peers in breaking down barriers for female attorneys and forging a path to a more diverse working environment.
Manning Gross + Massenburg LLP (MG+M), the national litigation boutique law firm known for protecting and advancing the interests of our clients wherever they do business, was recognized as a "Best Law Firm for Female Attorneys" in 2018 by the national law publication Law360. The designation was part of Law360's "Glass Ceiling Report," an annual evaluation of the progress U.S. law firms are making toward increasing opportunities for women at all levels--from associate to equity partner. MG+M was ranked #20 in the category of firms with 20 to 149 lawyers.
For its rankings, Law360 grouped firms based on U.S. attorney headcount, enabling comparisons across similarly sized firms. Firms were ranked by the percentage of female non-partners and partners--above-average representation was required for consideration. Law360 surveyed more than 300 U.S. law firms and 62 firms were named to the list.
According to the report, women represent just over one-third of all attorneys in private practice. That number has remained consistent over the past five law firm surveys Law360 has conducted, making the designation even more powerful.
"It is an honor for MG+M to be considered a best law firm for female attorneys and recognized for our focus on diversity as one of our firm's core values," said MG+M Managing Partner Amaryah K. Bocchino. "Our partners, our National Women's Forum, and our Diversity & Inclusion Committee have worked very hard over the last several years to create an inclusive environment where everyone has the opportunity to excel, and we are committed to recruiting, retaining, and promoting diverse attorneys and staff. We are very pleased to receive this recognition from Law360."
