Selman Breitman Again Ranked a Law360 Best Law Firm for Female Attorneys

Selman Breitman is pleased to announce that it has again been ranked a "Best Law Firm for Female Attorneys" by Law360, ranking at number 23 for all law firms nationwide of 20-149 attorneys. 

With reporting headcounts as of December 31, 2017, Selman Breitman proudly beats the national averages for firms of 20-149 attorneys in all ranked categories, including total number of female attorneys, total number of female non-partners, total number of female partners, and total number of female equity partners. Not noted in the ranking, but importantly, Selman Breitman also includes 50 percent female attorneys at the executive management level, a fact that Founding Partner Neil Selman says has been a core value since the firm's very beginning.

Ranking Methodology, as stated on

Law360 surveyed more than 300 U.S. firms, or vereins with a U.S. component, about their demographic makeup as of Dec. 31, 2017. Only U.S.-based attorneys were included in the survey, and firms had to have at least 20 U.S.-based attorneys to participate.

For the ranking, firms were first grouped according to size: 20-149 attorneys, 150-299 attorneys, 300-599 attorneys and 600-plus attorneys. Then, firms that fell below the average in any of the following categories were deemed ineligible for the ranking: (1) percentage of female attorneys; (2) percentage of female nonpartners; (3) percentage of female partners, both equity and nonequity; and (4) percentage of female equity partners. Finally, remaining firms were ranked using a formula that equally weights the percentage of nonpartners and percentage of total partners who are women.
