  • Foley was also named to the Top 10 Family Friendly Firms of 2016 by Yale Law Women. The survey ranks relative importance of various family-friendly policies in combination with policies designed to foster competition and fairness.

Foley offers an array of career programs and initiatives, along with family-oriented benefits and policies to support the retention and advancement of working parents and women attorneys.
