Welcome back to the Manliest Workplace in D.C. Tournament. This week, the long arm of the law has its strength tested as D.C.’s biggest law firms compete for man dominance. Today, the local partners of Williams & Connolly take on the upper-level lawyers at Hogan & Hartson (See the full 64-workplace bracket here). Will Williams, Connolly, Hogan, or Hartson have what it takes to claim the mantle of eternal manliness from the Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer character (right), as portrayed by the late Phil Hartman on NBC’s seminal sketch comedy program, “Saturday Night Live”? Court is now in session!
WILLIAMS & CONNOLLY: With 89 out of 103 partners in D.C. falling on the man side of the gender continuum, Williams & Connolly registers an 86.4 percent on the manly scale.
HOGAN & HARTSON: Hogan & Hartson employs a heart-stopping number of female partners: 60. But with 183 male partners filling out its 243-partner strong D.C. office, it still maintains an impressive 75 percent manliness. Not enough to out-man Will-Conn, though, who will go on to the next round of the tournament.
Stay tuned later today, when Arnold & Porter and Jones Day are called to the stand.
