Wragge Lawrence pledges 30 percent female partnership
Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co has made a pledge to increase the percentage of female partners among its ranks from 20 percent to 30 percent by the year 2026. The pledge comes after the firm's recent combination with Canadian firm [5083 Gowlings], which boasts 27 percent female partnership already.
Wragge Lawrence has additionally created a midway milestone, pledging to raise the percentage of female partners by five percent in as many years. Currently, the firm's gender balance is greater at the director level, where it is at 50 percent and associate level, where it is 55 percent female.
Although the two firms are in process with their combination, the targets set forth will apply only Wragges' partnership.
