Schiff Hardin LLP

Phone: 312-258-5500

As Schiff Hardin has grown from one office to six and from two attorneys to more than 300, there is no doubt that our full-service firm looks different than it did a century and a half ago.

For starters, we got serious about diversity before it was fashionable; today we set the pace in recruiting, hiring, and promoting diverse talent. And our efforts have not gone unnoticed—we are regularly recognized as a leader among law firms.

We have also expanded shrewdly, building new offices to meet specific client needs with strategic talent acquisition. From a top construction practice operating in Chicago and New York to an agile San Francisco intellectual property team to a Washington D.C.-based team of regulatory heavyweights, all our offices offer strengths that serve each of our clients—whether that client is down the street or across an ocean.

Yet there is one thing about Schiff Hardin that will never change: Our clients count on us for the knowledge, creativity, and candor that only decades of legal and business experience can provide. Our attorneys can always be found side by side with their clients, providing the practical yet creative counsel for which our firm is known.

Then, there is our depth of experience. As a general practice law firm, Schiff Hardin has strong capabilities in most legal disciplines and a total dedication to client service. We have helped shape the law in a number of cases in the U.S. Supreme Court, Federal Circuit Courts of Appeal, and state appellate courts, including landmark decisions in the fields of utility rate jurisdiction, intellectual property, product liability, animal law, class actions, and many other areas.

Throughout our long history we have devoted ourselves to the clients we serve. That is why so many have remained our clients for so long.
