Tampa, FL – The Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) has recognized Fowler White Boggs with its 2012 Gold Standard Certification for integrating women into the highest levels of firm leadership. This is the second year in a row Fowler White Boggs has been awarded this certification.
The Gold Standard Certification emphasizes the leadership roles achieved by women partners, rather than the overall number or percentage of women in the partnership. Law firms with 100 or more practicing lawyers in the United States were eligible if they successfully demonstrated 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.
“Fowler White Boggs is proud and honored to receive this important recognition,” said Rhea F. Law, CEO and Chair of the Board. “We have long recognized the importance of empowering women and consider it to be a core competency of our firm.”
Providing comprehensive legal services to our clients for nearly 70 years, Fowler White Boggs is one of Florida’s most respected law firms. Our Firm is internationally connected with a Florida focus with 140 attorneys in five offices located in Tampa, Fort Myers, Tallahassee, Jacksonville, and Fort Lauderdale.
