For the seventh year in a row, Thompson Coburn has earned a “Gold Standard Certification” from the Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) for incorporating women into the highest levels of Firm leadership.
The honor recognizes the leadership roles achieved by equity women partners in law firms across the country. With eligibility limited to firms with 300 or more attorneys, only 48 firms nationwide achieved “Gold Standard Certification” in 2020.
