Verrill Dana is proud to be one of the best law firms in the nation for female attorneys. In 2017, the firm was ranked 7th in the nation by National Law Journal based on its "NLJ 500 Women's Scorecard", and was named a "Law360 Ceiling Smasher" for its percentage of female equity partners compared to similarly sized firms.

"Although the legal industry in general has yet to accomplish true diversity and gender equality, we have made it a priority to ensure that opportunities for success exist across all levels of our firm," said K.C. Jones, Managing Partner at Verrill Dana. "Although we continue to beat industry standards in this respect, we insist upon doing better, and will continue our efforts to raise the bar for the profession as a whole."
