The National Law Journal has ranked Greensfelder, Hemker & Gale, P.C. among the nation’s largest law firms according to their percentages of women attorneys.

greensfelderlogoGreensfelder is ranked at 84th on the NLJ’s 2018 Women in Law Scorecard. Currently, about 36 percent of the firm’s attorneys are women.

“We are extremely proud of this recognition from the National Law Journal for our ongoing commitment to fostering an increasingly diverse and inclusive workplace at Greensfelder and to recruit and retain diverse talent,” said Christopher A. Pickett, an officer at the firm and Greensfelder’s chief diversity officer.

The Women’s Scorecard is produced from data on gender diversity collected from law firms as part of the NLJ’s annual head count among the largest 500 firms. Only the largest 350 firms are eligible for the Women’s Scorecard. Diversity staffing counts are based on a firm’s average full-time attorneys in 2017. Partner statistics include both equity and non-equity partners. Non-partner or “other” figures include special counsel, of counsel, and other staff attorneys. The Women in Law Score is determined by adding the percentage of female attorneys and percentage of female partners.
