SAN DIEGO (September 15, 2022) – Tyson & Mendes LLP is the No. 1 “Ceiling Smasher” in Law360’s 2022 Glass Ceiling Report, which annually analyzes and ranks law firms with the highest percentages of female attorneys and equity partners in the nation. With 62% of Tyson & Mendes’ equity partners being women, the firm leads the “101-250 attorneys” category for female equity partnership. This is the second time in three years the firm has topped this list.
Tyson & Mendes continues to demonstrate its commitment to establishing gender parity in the legal industry by providing mentoring and business development opportunities for female attorneys and clients through its TM Women’s Initiative. The firm hosts programs to build community, develop opportunities, and support advancement for women in both the legal and insurance industries.
