Update to New Partners 2010 Report: Two More Firms Make the "Best" List

We recently updated our report on the gender composition of the new partner classes of various law firms, and the news continues to be encouraging. We included the 2010 data for Debevoise & Plimpton and Drinker Biddle, and both made our "Best" list for promoting new partner classes that are 50% or more female. From the revised press release:

The Best: Sullivan and Cromwell (100% female); Munger Tolles (100%); Weil, Gotshal (100%); Mayer Brown (75%); Seyfarth Shaw (75%); Bingham McCutcheon (71%); Proskauer Rose (67%); WilmerHale (63%); Beveridge & Diamond (60%); Winston & Strawn (60%); Drinker Biddle (57%); Jackson Lewis (56%); Latham & Watkins (55%); Greenberg Traurig (54%); Akin Gump (50%); Debevoise & Plimpton (50%); DLA Piper (50%); Duane Morris (50%); Epstein Becker & Green (50%); Fenwick & West (50%); King & Spalding (50%); Parker Poe (50%); Shook Hardy (50%); Sidley Austin (50%); and Zuckerman Spaeder (50%).

That brings the total number of "best" firms to 25 -- very impressive. The complete release can be found here.

Other changes included the inclusion of Kutak Rock to the list and the addition of data for past years for several firms. Our thanks to everyone who has helped our data gathering efforts.
