Law360 Glass Ceiling Report Ranks Wilson Elser 9th in Its Size Category, Up from 20th Last Year


September 15, 2021

Wilson Elser placed ninth among firms with 601 or more attorneys in the Law360 2021 Glass Ceiling Report, a gain of 11 over last year’s results. New this year is a data-driven view of female attorney representation at law firms in the United States at the end of 2020, a year when law firms began facing new pressures to promote equity at all levels. Factoring in the inequitable challenges placed on women in the workforce due to the pandemic, Law360 based their methodology not only on a firm’s proportion of female attorneys and female equity partners but also on Law360’s latest Diversity Snapshot for each firm. The Diversity Snapshot assesses how gender diversity tends to dwindle at successive levels of the attorney hierarchy despite available talent, and scores are delivered based on data from the American Bar Association and previous Law360 survey submissions. A total of 269 firms were evaluated for the Glass Ceiling Report, with 66 of them in Wilson Elser’s size category.
