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.

“For Farella, this year we are marking our 50th Anniversary, so 2012 is about reflecting on and celebrating what has made the firm unique and successful for 50 years,” said firm chairman Steve Lowenthal. “Generous, creative and progressive policies and a culture of inclusion, collegiality and mentoring are examples of what distinguish Farella.

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