November 22, 2006


Fasken Martineau is pleased to be a leading sponsor of the Catalyst series on flexibility in Canadian law firms. Catalyst is a leading research and advisory organizaion working to advance women in business.

Their latest study, Beyond A Reasonable Doubt: Lawyers State Their Case on Job Flexibility, was released on November 22, 2006 and was based on a survey of more than 1,400 lawyers from across the country.

While approximately one in four lawyers in law firms report having used a flexible work arrangement, the majority of those surveyed see it as a career limiting move. More than half of the female lawyers surveyed believed that their use of flexible work arrangements limited their professional development and made them appear less committed to their firms, versus 21 per cent of men who used the same arrangements.

At Fasken Martineau, we are committed to going "beyond results" and to making the work environment for our people, who are the life blood of the firm, enjoyable and satisfying at the same time.

Fasken Martineau has been a member of Catalyst since 2001.
