The Careerist: Skadden Hits a Record for Female Partners

Posted by Vivia Chen

I must be delirious. This isn’t normal for me. But for the third time this week, I have good news about the state of women in the profession. (For the other two pieces of positive news, click here and here.)

This time, the cheer comes from Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher Flom, which just announced 11 new partners, including five women. According to the firm, this is an all-time record for new female partners, pushing women’s equity stake to 20 percent!

The new partners are:

 Robert Fumerton – litigation, New York  
 Alejandro Gonzalez Lazzeri – corporate, New York  
 Scott Hopkins  – corporate, London
 Emily Lam – tax, Washington, DC  
 Karen Hoffman Lent – antitrust, New York
