Kelley Kronenberg, a diverse business law firm, cracks the top 10 of the National Law Journal (NLJ) 500 Women’s Scorecard. The Women’s Scorecard is produced as part of the NJL 500 firm headcount report, which is released annually. Only the largest 350 firms are eligible for the Women’s Scorecard, which ranks firms by the total percentage of female attorneys and partners.
“Diversity is incredibly important to our firm. We strongly believe in creating opportunities not only for women but for our entire staff to advance and grow, both professionally and personally,” said Michael Fichtel, Kelley Kronenberg’s CEO and Principle Partner.
The firm is happy to be a part of this prestigious list, holding a 38% female attorney rate and a 39% female partner rate.
Kelley Kronenberg has made diversity a key aspect and feature of the firm, stressing sensitivity and equality as part of the culture and core values. Intense training through the firms’ human resources department has been made available as part of the firm’s diversity in the workplace program. Additionally, the firm offers several benefits for its female staff members, including generous maternity leave options and a lactation room in the office for new mothers.
The National Law Journal reports legal information of national importance to attorneys, including federal circuit court decisions, verdicts, practitioners’ columns, coverage of legislative issues and legal news for the business and private sectors.
