Working Mother Names Schiff Hardin to “Best Law Firms for Women” List

News Release |

Schiff Hardin LLP is proud to announce that for the seventh year in a row, the firm has been named to Working Mother magazine’s “Best Law Firms for Women” list. The firm is one of just 60 law firms being recognized for best practices in retaining and promoting women lawyers.

Among Schiff’s diversity-oriented policies is the recently enacted Ramp Up/Down policy, which cuts soon-to-be parents' hours requirements by 20 percent for one month before the baby is delivered and one month after returning to work with no reduction in salary. The policy is designed to reduce some of the stress and challenges that working parents encounter.

The Working Mother magazine list highlights U.S. law firms with policies that support the advancement of women and work-life balance initiatives.
