“The Women Partner Watch Honor Roll”
Over the last three years the percentage of women lawyers promoted to Am Law 200 partnerships reached 32.7 percent. The last time we examined a similar sample at the start of 2012 we pegged the partner promotion rate at 30 percent. The progress, however, is spotty. Firms vary from year to year in the percentage of women they promote. Below are lists of firms that beat the average. The data come from ALM Legal Intelligence, our RivalEdge web research tool, and independent searches on the web.
Thompson & Knight is included as a firm whose new partner classes were at least 30% women for the last three years.
