The D.C. office of Kirkpatrick & Lockhart Nicholson Graham earned the highest marks in Washington in a survey released earlier this month of how female attorneys view the treatment of women in their own firms. Nationwide, Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal topped the list of “Presumed Equal: What America’s Top Women Lawyers Really Think About Their Firms.” The survey, conducted by Harvard Law School’s Women’s Law Association, canvassed 16,000 female attorneys at more than 100 prominent firms across the country and received nearly 4,000 responses. It asked women lawyers to rate their firms on issues such as work-life balance, mentoring, diversity, and business-development and advancement opportunities. Roslyn Pitts, Kirkpatrick’s director of legal recruitment and professional development, credits the firm’s success to a number of recent initiatives, such as the addition, in 2003, of a chief diversity officer, who sits on the management committee, and the launching of a balanced-hours program earlier this year. Williams & Connolly; Finnegan, Henderson, Farabow, Garrett & Dunner; Covington & Burling; and Hogan & Hartson rounded out Washington’s top five.
