On Thursday, June 21st, Chambers & Partners hosted their seventh annual Chambers & Partners Women in Law Awards to recognize achievements, empower the people behind innovative women’s initiatives, and give greater visibility to gender diversity. Ranking in the top six nationally, Barran Liebman was recognized as one of the “Law Firms of the Year in Promoting Flexible Working Environments and Innovative Programs for Mothers.”
According to Traci Ray, Barran Liebman’s Executive Director, “The firm is proud of its commitment to not simply providing, but actively encouraging flexible schedules for working parents.” The firm encourages its team members to create their own leave schedules, work part-time, or craft flexible full-time schedules. Barran Liebman believes in the rewards of maintaining a healthy balance between work and family, and that given maximum flexibility to determine one's own schedule, an attorney or staff member will thrive and reach their full potential at work. In addition to flexible work schedules, Barran Liebman is committed to equity and diversity, with over 40% of its attorneys being female or members of a minority group. The firm is honored by this national recognition and looks forward to maintaining its commitment to gender equality in the legal profession.
