Talk about awkward timing! Guess which firm is on the 2018 Working Mother and ABA Journal’s “Best Law Firms for Women” listOgletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, the labor and employment firm that’s now facing a $300 million gender bias suit.  

I have no idea how the case will shake out, but I’m willing to bet that some of Ogletree’s female lawyers—current and former—are balking (or barfing) at the “best” label. The complaint, filed earlier this year, alleges that the firm “pays its male shareholders approximately $110,000 more than its female shareholders, in target compensation and bonus alone.” Plus, there’s been a steady exodus of female partners out of Ogletree (10 have left since January, when the case was filed, according to ALM Intelligence).
