Haynes and Boone, LLP was featured in a Texas Lawyer magazine article in December that looked at the creative approaches firms have taken to retain and promote female lawyers. The article discusses the firm’s efforts, since its founding, to promote gender diversity and quotes Partners Ellen McGinnis and Erin England at length, discussing the Finance Practice Group’s recent success at promoting women.
The two-page article, titled “Same Goal, Different Plan: Texas Firms get Creative with Their Women Initiatives,” is the magazine’s December cover story.

Today, women comprise 44 percent of the 55-lawyer Finance Practice Group at Haynes and Boone, and 39 percent of the group’s partners are women.
