Saturday, September 1, 2007 - 01:00

Working Mother magazine has named Gibbons P.C. to its first-ever list of the Best Law Firms for Women. Gibbons is the only New Jersey-headquartered firm to appear on this list, which includes the top 50 firms nationwide.

"We are proud to be included on this prestigious list, and applaud the efforts of so many Gibbons people that led to the firm's inclusion," said Patrick C. Dunican Jr., the managing director of Gibbons.

According to the publication, "The winning firms are noted for their work/life and women-friendly policies - including flex-time, child care and women-focused mentoring, leadership and networking programs - as they set new standards to retain and promote top female legal talent." The 50 winning firms were selected based on their responses to an application measuring six areas of importance: workforce profile, benefits and compensation, parental leave, child care, flexibility, and retention and advancement of women.

Complete information about this list, including profiles of the winning firms, appears in the August/September issue of Working Mother which is available on newsstands and online at www.workingmother.com.
