It’s official! Although Montage Legal Group has proudly been a women-owned business since Laurie Rowen and Erin Giglia co-founded the freelance platform in 2009, we are excited to announce that we are now certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
What does this mean? The WBENC Certification process has confirmed that our business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by women. Specifically, women must have unrestricted control of the business, a demonstrated management of day-to-day operations, and a proportionate investment of capital or expertise.
Not only is Montage Legal Group an official Women’s Business Enterprise, but we are thrilled that a majority of our freelancers are women as well! Montage has enabled women to make the jump from a traditional law firm setting to freelance legal work so that they can maintain a work/life balance that many women struggle with as attorneys. Being able to work where and when they want has empowered experienced female lawyers from all over the United States to stay in the legal market and continue to practice their skills even as they attend to outside interests and focus on family, creative endeavors, or additional businesses. Montage has given women the choice to NOT have to choose between work and having a life.
Thank you WBENC for recognizing Montage Legal Group as a Women’s Business Enterprise!
