(November 3, 2016) -- For the sixth year in a row, Reed Smith LLP has received top rankings from the Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF), which again rates the firm “Gold Standard Certified” for its commitment to women’s career advancement, diversity and inclusion.

According to WILEF: “The Certification Award is the only one of its kind directed toward certifying, publicly recognizing, and broadly publicizing eligible law firms that have integrated women into the highest leadership positions in the firm.”

Reed Smith has exceeded all six criteria for receiving WILEF’s top ranking, and it is one of only two firms in the United States to have done so each consecutive year since WILEF began its certification process for law firms in 2011.
