Working Mother Names Cooley a Six‑Time Best Law Firm for Women

Palo Alto – July 25, 2017 – For the sixth consecutive year, Working Mother magazine has named Cooley one of its 50 Best Law Firms for Women. The annual accolade recognizes law firms using the “best practices in retaining and promoting women lawyers.”

“It’s heartening to be recognized by Working Mother six years running,” said Shira Nadich Levin, partner and co-chair of Cooley’s Women's Initiative alongside partner Kay Chandler. “Cooley has long been dedicated to elevating women lawyers, and we hope the strength and momentum of our program serves as an inspiration.”

Cooley’s Women’s Initiative is part of the firm’s core diversity principles to attract, retain and mentor a strong network of women lawyers. The initiative aims to provide women at Cooley with the tools necessary to achieve professional success and personal fulfillment, including counseling, professional development and networking opportunities.

“We are very proud of this accolade,” said Chandler. “In addition to reflecting our dedication, it serves as a reminder that Cooley is committed to further raising standards and expectations for the advancement of women lawyers both here and in the legal industry as a whole.”

Cooley’s unique culture is consistently recognized on other top workplace lists, including Fortune's elite list of 100 Best Companies to Work For, on which Cooley was the #1 law firm in 2017. Cooley has also earned positions on Fortune’s top workplaces lists for Women, Parents, Flexibility, Giving Back and Consulting and Professional Services.
