Ogletree, Deakins, Nash, Smoak & Stewart, a national labor and employment firm facing a $300 million gender bias suit, has watched several women partners head for the doors this year. The firm, however, is taking steps to address diversity and inclusion issues.

Gillian Yee, a former nonequity partner at Ogletree Deakins, recently jumped to national labor and employment rival Jackson Lewis in Detroit. With her departure, Yee joined a growing queue of women lawyers who have left Ogletree Deakins since January, when fellow former nonequity partner Dawn Knepper hit the firm with a proposed collective action alleging gender bias.
