Last Updated: July 30 2015

WilmerHale has ranked in the 2015 edition of Working Mother magazine and Flex-Time Lawyers 50 Best Law Firms for Women, marking the eighth consecutive year that the firm has been ranked since the list's inception in 2007.

Jennifer Owens, editorial director of Working Mother magazine, says, "The 50 Best Law Firms for Women are setting and pushing forward the standard when it comes to retaining women—and advancing them to the very top, equity partnership. These firms are also committed to creating best practices that support working parents."

WilmerHale will be featured in a special edition of Working Mother's magazine and is profiled on www.workingmother.com and www.flextimelawyers.com.
