Glass ceiling still alive for female lawyers

A new report has painted a bleak picture for female legal professionals, revealing that male clients are significantly less likely to choose a woman to represent them.

The report found that mixed gender teams significantly outperform single gender teams on industry-recognised key performance metrics.

Mixed gender teams revealed uplift in performance across all industry-recognised metrics, with the biggest gain seen in the strength of relationships.

In addition, Acritas compared the performance of teams led by male partners with female partners and observed no significant differences on any KPI.
