Big Law has a major gender equality problem, according to David Sanford, the chairman of Sanford Heisler Sharp.
Sanford is in a position to know. His firm is taking action to address the disparities he sees—it currently represents about a dozen woman partners, and it is pursuing bias claims against at least five firms in cases that are not yet public. He’s also handled many cases that ended in confidential settlements—deals that when added together, he says, enabled female partners to recover tens of millions of dollars.
