For Fox Rothschild associate Danielle Ryan, who gave birth to her first child, Teddy, last October, a new leave policy at the firm is already having a dramatic effect on her family.

In May 2018, Philadelphia-based Fox Rothschild erased gender distinctions in granting leave, instead offering eight weeks of paid leave for attorneys and staff that covers birth, birth via surrogacy, adoption and placement of a foster child. Birthing mothers are eligible for an additional 12 weeks of short-term disability leave, for a total of 20 weeks paid leave.
