November 13, 2012 Announcement

SAN FRANCISCO (November 13, 2012): Working Mother today named Farella Braun + Martel LLP as one of the 2012 Working Mother and Flex-Time Lawyers “50 Best Law Firms for Women.” The award recognizes law firms for their family-friendly policies and business development initiatives that are retaining women and advancing them into the leadership pipeline.

These attributes draw female attorneys to the firm and keep them here.
