Fragomen Ranked #1 on NLJ Women in Law Scorecard for Sixth Year in Row

Fragomen is proud to have been ranked #1 on the National Law Journal's (NLJ) “Women In Law Scorecard” for the sixth year in a row, highlighting our firm’s commitment to hiring, promoting and recognizing the best and brightest individuals, regardless of gender.

The Scorecard ranks the nation's largest law firms according to their percentages of women attorneys.

Remembering her experience in joining the firm over 20 years ago, Haseena Enu, a partner based in the firm’s Dallas office said in the article, "There were women on the executive committee, there were plenty of women partners in the office where I started working, [and] there were women running offices," Enu said. "And, as a woman walking into the firm as a young associate, you don't see limits.”

In 2016, Fragomen’s women comprised

  • 62 percent of our firm's 539 lawyers, versus 35.1 percent on average amongst lawyers at all responding firms

  •  Nearly half (46.5 percent) of Fragomen’s partnership, versus 21.8 percent on average amongst partners at all responding firms

  • Fully two-thirds (66.3 percent) of associates at Fragomen, versus only 46 percent of associates amongst all responding firms

NJL developed this year’s scorecard based on survey responses from 261 of the nation's 350 largest law firms by head count. The Women in Law rankings are calculated by adding each firm's percentage of women attorneys with its percentage of women partners. Read more here.
