The Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) has recognized Bryan Cave as a Gold Standard firm for the fourth year in a row. Bryan Cave is one of just 44 law firms to receive Gold Standard Certification for 2017.

WILEF created its Gold Standard Certification as a way to encourage the development of women in law firms. Law firms with 300 or more practicing lawyers in the United States are eligible for Gold Standard Certification if they successfully demonstrate that women represent a meaningful percentage of their equity partners, of their highest leadership positions, of their governance and compensation committees, and of their most highly compensated partners.

“This award recognizes the robust role women play at Bryan Cave, including at our most senior levels of leadership,” said Bryan Cave’s Chief Diversity Officer Lisa Martin. “We are honored to receive this acknowledgment of the firm’s commitment to developing, promoting and rewarding our women lawyers.”
