CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) August 05, 2014
Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg LLP announced that it has been recognized as one of the 2014 “50 Best Law Firms for Women” by Working Mother and Flex-Time Lawyers, marking the sixth consecutive time that the firm has been named to the list.
“We are honored to be once again included on this impressive list,” said Tonya G. Newman, a partner and co-chair of the firm’s Women’s Network. “We are proud of the achievements of the women attorneys in the firm, and we remain committed to continuously providing a culture that enables our women attorneys to be leaders in both the firm and the community.”
Working Mother magazine and Flex-Time Lawyers LLC recognize 50 law firms each year for their family-friendly policies and business development and career development initiatives that are helping to retain women attorneys and advance them into the leadership pipeline.
Carol Evans, president of Working Mother Media, stated, “An amazing abundance of female talent has poured into the field of law. It is critical that this talent is allowed to succeed, and that the culture of the law industry adjusts to the work life needs of women. The Best Law Firms for Women are leading the way for all law firms to follow.”
One way that Neal Gerber Eisenberg supports its women attorneys is through the Women’s Network. The Women’s Network is a leadership team dedicated to supporting the personal and professional goals of the firm’s women attorneys through programming, training in strategic areas such as marketing and client development, opportunities to take on leadership roles in the firm, and forums for internal and external networking.
Neal Gerber Eisenberg’s inclusion on the list of the 50 Best Law Firms for Women is featured in the August/September 2014 issue of Working Mother magazine, and on http://www.workingmother.com and http://www.flextimelawyers.com.
