Wood Smith Henning & Berman LLP
WSHB was founded in 1997 with two California offices and has had tremendous organic non-merger growth to currently over 350 attorneys in 31 offices in 19 states. The firm represents a large and diverse group of regional and international clients ranging from individuals to Fortune 500 corporations. WSHB offers its attorneys stability in the sense that no one client makes up more than 6% of the firm’s work. The firm has expertise in handling a wide variety of practice areas which continue to grow.
As a firm, WSHB has been routinely lauded for its diversity efforts. Just this year, WSHB was ranked ninth in the nation for the inclusiveness of its women attorneys on NLJ’s Women in Law Scorecard. It also earned RING (Recognizing Inclusion for the Next Generation) certification for the second consecutive year. In addition to a strong focus on diversity and inclusion, the firm also encourages active charitable efforts. Its attorneys serve as board members and in other leadership positions for many different charitable organizations. Firmwide charitable events, as well as office specific ones, occur throughout any given year. During the holidays, each of the offices adopts at least one local family in-need providing meals for Thanksgivings as well as gifts for the holidays.
