Making a better case for paternity leave

Claire Bushey writes, "When Siddesh Bale's daughter was born in June 2013, the young lawyer took full advantage of the six weeks of paid paternity leave offered by Reed Smith's Chicago office. Then, in December, the 38-year-old and his wife adopted a son. An associate in the business and finance practice, Bale again plans to use full leave, which his firm extended to 10 weeks in August. He'll spread that time out over the year."
