Pillsbury receives Gold Standard Certification from Women in Law Empowerment Forum
For the third year in a row, the Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) has awarded Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pitman its Gold Standard Certification.
The WILEF certification recognises law firms with a significant percentage of women equity partners holding leadership positions.
While 50 firms were named to the list in 2012, Pillsbury was one of only 42 firms to feature on the 2013 list.
WILEF tightened certification standards this year, restricting eligibility to firms with 200 or more lawyers. Firms were also required to meet at least four of six specific qualifying metrics. In the previous year, firms with 100 or more lawyers were eligible and firms were only required to meet three of the six criteria.
Pillsbury board members Allison Leopold Tilley, a partner in the corporate and securities technology practice, and Deborah Baum, a partner in the litigation practice, serve on the WILEF advisory board.
