Akerman was named among the best law firms for female lawyers on Law360's inaugural top 100 list. The firm ranked no. 27, based on the total number of female lawyers at the partner and non-partner levels. The new designation comes only weeks after Akerman was listed as one of the top 20 U.S. law firms for female partners by The American Lawyer. For at least three years, Akerman has outperformed the industry average for the number of female partners promoted.

The collective recognition Akerman has received is a testament to the firm's ongoing hiring and professional development practices for a diverse group of men and women. As part of its commitment to build a supportive and inclusive environment, Akerman became one of only 15 national law firms to join an innovative pilot program, the OnRamp Fellowship, which is the first "returnship" ever launched in the legal field. The OnRamp Fellowship program matches experienced women lawyers who are eager to return to practice after an extended hiatus, sending a powerful message to women lawyers and the broader legal profession that there are many avenues to success.
