Named one of the nation's Top 50 Law Firms for Women by Working Mother Media and Flex-Time Lawyers
December 7, 2009
In its ongoing effort to build and retain a diverse legal team, Frost Brown Todd strives to offer an environment in which women can plan to succeed and advance – and, if they choose, also find time and energy to raise a family.
Now those efforts have been recognized nationally: Working Mother Media and Flex-Time Lawyers have named Frost Brown Todd as one of the nation’s 50 Best Law Firms for Women.
"For lawyers raising families, the choices remain stark,” said information distributed by Working Mother Media and Flex-Time lawyers. “Work nonstop to rack up billable hours or step off the partnership track to be home in time for dinner.”
Frost Brown Todd has never believed legal professionals should have to choose between family and career. By offering flexible working arrangements, accommodating individual needs and emphasizing the values of life balance, Frost Brown Todd makes it possible for both male and female professionals to succeed without sacrificing their home lives.
The Best Law Firms for Women list was assembled based on responses to surveys distributed by Working Mother Media and Flex-Time Lawyers, a national consulting firm advising legal employers on work/life balance issues. Factors considered in the analysis included workforce profile, family-friendly policies, flexibility, leadership, compensation, and advancement and retention of women attorneys and legal professionals.
This emphasis is not new to Frost Brown Todd. The firm has long been dedicated to the advancement of female professionals, as evidenced by the FBT Women’s Initiative. Established in 2001, the program focuses on professional development, mentoring, promotion and retention of female attorneys.
