Pomerantz Monitor, May/June 2015
Pomerantz LLP is once again at the vanguard of the legal field. In a recent report, Law 360 has ranked the firm No. 1 in Top Law Firms for Women: Class Action Securities Firms. Pomerantz is proud to boast a 40% rate of female partners, 40% rate of female Of Counsel, and a 50% rate of female associates. These numbers put Pomerantz near the head of women overall in law firms in the United States, and at the forefront of women in class action securities firms in particular.
Managing Partner Marc I. Gross shared his thoughts on this distinction, stating, “Pomerantz is proud that its efforts to maintain a diversified staff of attorneys and partners has been so successful. We hope other firms will follow.”
Pomerantz is no stranger to cutting edge accomplishments in the legal field, consistently finding new and innovative ways to fight for our clients’ rights; we are proud of this latest recognition of our success. At a time when the gender gap in America’s workforce is a source of national controversy, Pomerantz strongly stands by our hiring practices, which ensure the best attorneys are chosen for the job of representing our clients.
Partner Murielle Steven Walsh says, “As a young associate at Pomerantz, I was mentored by a women partner. That experience had a positive impact on my development as an attorney.” Ms. Steven Walsh has prosecuted highly successful securities class action and corporate governance cases, and has argued, and won, cases before the Second Court of Appeals.
Among recent accolades for Pomerantz attorneys, Partner Jayne Goldstein, who heads Pomerantz’s Florida office, was featured in a recent Law 360 article, “The Female Attorneys You Admire”; and Tamar A. Weinrib, Of Counsel, was chosen as a New York Metro Rising Star in 2014.
Pomerantz looks forward to keep pushing the envelope in this arena and others as we continue the legacy our founder, Abe Pomerantz, began almost 80 years ago.
