Three law firms based in Indiana or with offices in the state are among the 50 Best Law Firms for Women in the annual list compiled by Working Mother and consulting firm Flex-Time Lawyers LLC

Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, Ice Miller LLP and Littler Mendelson P.C. were named to the list. The rankings are based on firms that lead in attracting, retaining and promoting women attorneys.

The list doesn’t rank firms numerically. At Faegre, 37 percent of attorneys are women as are 20 percent of equity partners. Ice Miller also had 37 percent female lawyers and 24 percent of its equity partners are women. Littler, a San Francisco-based firm with a Northside Indianapolis office, has a force of 49 percent women attorneys, and 27 percent of its equity partners are women.

Working Mother commented on each firm.

Faegre: “The Women’s Forum for Achievement offered by this firm boasts a wide range of useful programs for lawyers, with educational sessions, discussion groups and workshops that cover success strategies, sponsorship, mentoring, leadership development and more.”

Ice Miller: “Intensive mentoring is a boon to new lawyers at this firm, who work with both peers and partners to strengthen core skills and devise long-range plans. On-site exercise classes, reimbursed gym memberships and $1,000 health-savings-account grants encourage fitness.”

Littler: “Showing support for its diverse workforce, this firm maintains myriad affinity groups and a vital women’s leadership initiative, along with sterling benefits and flex schedules. In 2012, 63 percent of associates, 76 percent of counsel and 32 percent of partners (equity and nonequity) were women.”

  1. So if I am reading it right, only if and when African American college students agree to receive checks labeling them as "Negroes" do they receive aid from the UNCF or the Quaker's Educational Fund? In other words, to borrow from the Indiana Appellate Court, "the [nonprofit] supposed to be [their] advocate, refers to [students] in a racially offensive manner. While there is no evidence that [the nonprofits] intended harm to [African American students], the harm was nonetheless inflicted. [Black students are] presented to [academia and future employers] in a racially offensive manner. For these reasons, [such] performance [is] deficient and also prejudice[ial]." Maybe even DEPLORABLE???

  3. A high ranking Indiana supreme Court operative caught red handed leading a group using the uber offensive N word! She must denounce or be denounced! (Or not since she is an insider ... rules do not apply to them). Evidence here: http://m.indianacompanies.us/friends-educational-fund-for-negroes.364110.company.v2#top_info

  4. A high ranking bureaucrat with Ind sup court is heading up an organization celebrating the formal N word!!! She must resign and denounce! http://m.indianacompanies.us/friends-educational-fund-for-negroes.364110.company.v2#top_info

  5. ND2019, don't try to confuse the Left with facts. Their ideologies trump facts, trump due process, trump court rules, even trump federal statutes. I hold the proof if interested. Facts matter only to those who are not on an agenda-first mission.
