Following is an excerpt:

Forty-six BigLaw firms promoted partnership classes in the past year that were at least 50% women, a new report by the think tank Diversity & Flexibility Alliance has found.

In its annual New Partner Report, which analyzes public press releases issued by the 137 biggest and top-grossing law firms in the past 12 months, the alliance recognized 46 firms for having their new partner classes be at least 50% women. While there has been a general upward trend with each passing year, 40.9% of all new partners this year were women, down slightly from 41.3% last year, according to the report.
