National Law Journal Ranks Lindquist Top Firm in Minnesota for Women Equity Partnership


In a special report published by The National Law Journal, Lindquist & Vennum was recognized as the top Minnesota law firm for Women Equity Partners.  Lindquist reported that 22.11% of its equity partners in 2011 were women.  The percentage placed the firm #1 in Minnesota and #14 nationally among participating NLJ 250/Am Law 200 law firms.

Nancy Vollertsen, employment law Partner, former Diversity Committee Chair and frequent spokesperson on women's issues at the firm, remarks, "This ranking is significant, especially for a firm of our size. I am proud of the efforts that have led us to this achievement. The sustained improvement in our number of female equity partners is the result of an aggressive recruiting and retention campaign, in addition to our work in creating a firm culture that stresses gender equity and female leadership. This ranking confirms that while we still have work to do, we are definitely on the right path." 

The report was compiled from data collected as part of the 2012 NLJ/Am Law 200 Survey and reflects the average full-time equivalent number of attorneys for 2011.  211 of the 258 NLJ 250 and Am Law 200 firms were ranked based on their reported percentage of female equity partners.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
