Cahill Recognized as Gold Standard Firm by Women in Law Empowerment Forum
The Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) recognized Cahill as one of its 2014 Gold Standard Firms at an Awards Luncheon on September 17th. The WILEF Gold Standard Certification emphasizes the leadership roles achieved by equity women partners, rather than the policies or practices of the firm or the overall number or percentage of women in the partnership. To achieve the Gold Standard certification, firms must 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.
“WILEF’s strict Gold Standard criteria has set the bar for meaningful measurement of women leadership in law firms, and we're honored to be recognized by it as committed to the advancement of women in the law,” commented Landis C. Best, Co-Administrative partner of the firm.
