    Arent Fox Ranks Second Nationally for “Best Law Firms for Diversity” and 15th for "Best Firms to Work For"

    July 30, 2005

    WASHINGTON—JULY 30, 2005—Arent Fox is pleased to announce that the firm ranked second in the nation for “Best Law Firms in Diversity” and 15th for “Best Firms to Work For.” It also was ranked—on national and international lists—in the top 100 “Most Prestigious Law Firms” by Vault's “Top 100 Law Firms” Guide for 2006.

    Other notable regional rankings include:

    #2 - Diversity for Women
    #2 - Diversity for Gays and Lesbians
    #4 - Diversity for Minorities
    #5 - Hours
    #6 - Pro Bono
    #12 - Associate/Partner Relations

    “Arent Fox's high ranking in these important fields is a testament to our outlook and approach,” said William R. Charyk, managing partner. “It bears out our belief that a diverse and collegial work environment is a key to performance and profitability. This is the best way to earn prestige from our peers.”

    Vault, the popular online resource, annually publishes a comprehensive insider guide to the most prestigious law firms in the country. Vault surveyed more than 15,000 lawyers at more than 150 major law firms and asked them to rank them the annually updated guide to the best law firms in the country.

    This year's guide offers prestige, practice area, quality of life, diversity and regional rankings. The guide offers a snapshot of the firm, noting:

    At most law firms, the concept of a work/life balance is skewed outrageously in favor of the work side of the scale, and spending quality time with Junior or hanging out with buddies gets short shrift. But at “relaxed and friendly” Arent Fox, associates happily profess to being “able to pursue my career goals while maintaining a healthy family life.”
