“Many leaders talk about the importance of gender parity within their firms,” explains K.C. Jones, Managing Partner at Verrill Dana. “We, however, are proud to say with confidence that we are making great strides, ensuring that all attorneys are given opportunities to succeed and grow as vital members of the firm. We hope others within the profession will follow suit until we have truly achieved gender equality within the legal industry as a whole.”
Verrill Dana was also named a 2017 Law360 Ceiling Smasher and was ranked in Law360’s 2015 and 2016 Glass Ceiling Reports for its commitment to gender equality.
“Our pledge to diversity and inclusion has not wavered, but rather has continued to play an important role in our hiring, development, and retention of female attorneys and female equity partners,” said Jacqueline Rider, Verrill Dana Partner and Chair of the firm’s Diversity Committee.
