Conrad O’Brien was again recognized by Law360 based on a nationwide survey as one of the Best Law Firms for Female Attorneys as ranked by the 2018 Glass Ceiling Report in the category of firms with 20 to 149 lawyers. The firm was ranked 23 out of 27 firms of similar size. Law360 recognized firms, including Conrad O’Brien, who are making progress towards increasing opportunities for women attorneys and gender diversity, despite the overall low numbers of women attorneys in the legal field.
At Conrad O’Brien forty percent of the attorney workforce is women. This number is above the average law firm where, according to Law360’s Report, women make up only approximately one-third of the attorney workforce in firms of similar size.
For the rankings, Law360 grouped firms based on U.S. attorney headcount to compare them with similarly sized firms. Any firm that had a below-average female representation at any level of the firm was excluded. The remaining firms were ranked by the percentage of female nonpartners and female partners at the firm.
