The firm's origins date back to the 1864 founding of the firm Hitchcock & Dupree. Many of the firm's current banking and industrial clients have relied on the firm's sound advice since the 1870s and 1880s. However, the firm's current name was not taken on until 2004.

In addition to its primary practice areas, Schiff Hardin is also committed to pro bono work from an array of legal services organizations and civic groups, state and municipal agencies, and litigants themselves. The firm's major areas of pro bono interest include civil rights, political asylum, death penalty litigation, landlord-tenant disputes, public benefits, divorce, child custody, disability law, consumer contracts, homeless rights, low-income housing, community development, simple will and estate matters, as well as other issues of concern to the indigent.

In 1998, the firm established the Schiff Hardin Women's Networking Group (WNG), which offers a number of networking events and opportunities professional advancement opportunities for women attorneys. The group consists of female attorneys from the law firm as well as female clients and other friends of the firm.
