Ice Miller Recognized as WILEF 2022 Gold Standard Firm

Ice Miller has achieved Women in Law Empowerment Forum (WILEF) 2022 Gold Standard Certification for the sixth year in a row. 

WILEF is the premier organization for women in law exclusively dedicated to women from the largest law firms and corporate law departments in the United States. Each year, WILEF grants Gold Standard status to major firms that meet objective criteria concerning the number of women among equity partners, in firm leadership positions and in the ranks of their most highly compensated partners.

Law firms with 300 or more practicing lawyers in the United States are eligible for 2022 WILEF Gold Standard Certification if they successfully demonstrate that women represent a meaningful percentage of their equity partners, of their highest leadership positions, of their governance and compensation committees and of their most highly compensated partners. For 2022 Gold Standard Certification, a meaningful percentage means the firm satisfies both the mandatory criterion that:
  • 25% of equity partners or, alternatively, 40% of the attorneys becoming equity partners during the past 12 months are women
  • 10% of women equity partners are women of color or 4% of women equity partners are LGBT
and at least two of the following four criteria:
  • 20% of the firm and U.S. branch office heads are women
  • 25% of the firm’s primary governance committee are women
  • 25% of the firm’s compensation committee or its equivalent are women
  • 20% of the top half of the firm’s equity partners in terms of compensation are women 
“Ice Miller is proud to be a six-time Gold Standard Firm,” said Rebecca Seamands, deputy managing partner at Ice Miller. “We would like to thank our women partners for their many contributions to both the firm and the legal profession, and we look forward to continuing to promote the advancement of women in firm leadership.”
Women are engaged at all levels of Ice Miller’s leadership and represent half of the firm’s managing partners. Ice Miller continues to build upon the firm’s long history of investing in our women leaders by committing resources to professional development, career building and networking opportunities for women attorneys.
