Men and women favour different firms

Men and women favour different firms

The Momentum Intelligence Legal Firm of Choice Report 2016 has revealed that women prefer to work for national firms, while men prefer globals.

Lawyers Weekly recently revealed the Top 25 Attraction Firms that lawyers aspire to work for, determined by the Legal Firm of Choice Report 2016.

Over 700 people responded to the research question – 63.9 per cent were female and 36.1 per cent were male.

When breaking down the results by the respondents’ gender it was found that women were more inclined to select national firms, while men more often selected globals.

The firm that attracted the most support from women was Lander & Rogers, with 79.5 per cent of all respondents that selected Lander & Rogers being female.

This was closely followed by Gadens, with 75.6 per cent of all respondents that selected the firm being women.

Interestingly, the third favourite among women was Deloitte Legal, with 73.5 per cent of all respondents that selected the accounting firm’s legal department being female.

On the other hand, male respondents were more likely to select big global firms as their top choice if they were ever to move firms.

Coming in first place for men was Jones Day, with 57.1 per cent of all respondents that selected the firm being male.

Very close behind was Allens with 56.1 per cent, and then Allen & Overy with 52.5 per cent.
