Learning to be mindful, resilient and community-minded are all aspects of this firm's SeyfarthLife initiative, which uses affinity groups, benefits, courses and other resources to add balance to attorneys' lives. Unlimited vacation, alternative schedules and 18 weeks' primary-caregiver leave help too.

"We are honored to be consistently recognized for our diversity initiatives which enable the highest levels of performance and career satisfaction for all attorneys," said Ellen McLaughlin, national chair of Seyfarth Women's Network. "Seyfarth women hold significant leadership roles within the firm and are paving the way for our next generation of women leaders."

Law firms completed an extensive application in the areas of workforce profile, flexibility and development and retention of women. Best Law Firms were selected from a pool of self-selected applicant firms with 50 or more lawyers in the U.S. Statistics reported are aggregated from data provided by the firms collected from the full year of 2016.
