For the second year in a row, Berry Appleman & Leiden leads the Women in Law Scorecard rankings. Of the firm’s 200 lawyers in 2019, 59.5% were women, according to data submitted to The National Law Journal. Women also comprised 60% of the firm’s associates (up from 57.8% in 2018), 63.6% of the firm’s partnership (up from 60% in 2018) and 42.9% of the firm’s equity partnership (the same as in 2018).

Firms best known for practices that have traditionally attracted more women lawyers—namely, immigration and labor and employment—remained leaders on the 2020 Women’s Scorecard. And according to data made available for the first time this year, many of these firms leading in gender diversity also reported having the highest percentages of minority women partners among their U.S. partner ranks: Fragomen, which landed the No. 2 spot on the Scorecard, reported 15.8% of its U.S. partners are minority women and Berry Appleman reported that 13.6% of its U.S. partner ranks are minority women.
