McAndrews, Held & Malloy, Ltd. Reviews

- Reviewed on July 28, 2017

Advice to law firm management: It was great to be recognized for doing a great job, and if you can only pull your own weight that's fine, too. You need to get rid of those that are along for the free ride, though.

Pros: This firm has a great atmosphere. I was recognized for my hard work and I felt like part of the team. The office was casual and we had free beverages and food all the time. It was a great place to work!

Cons: Some people were lazy and didn't pull their weight. We had to pull the weight of others to meet deadlines. Some friendships within the office mattered too much, and certain people got away with too much.

Our female and minority attorneys hold management positions and play an integral part of every aspect of our firm. Under the guidance of our Diversity Committee, we foster increased diversity through initiatives such as our Diversity in Patent Law Fellowship, Women's Group, Professional Development Committee, mentoring programs and flexible work schedules.

Our firm's attorneys have served in leadership positions with many diversity-focused organizations and bar associations.

Summer associate program

Our associates serve as integral members of every client team. They help to build and execute the strategies we design to achieve clients' goals, and gain hands-on experience and exposure to the issues involved. We believe this team approach also provides associates with the opportunity to take on challenging and rewarding work early in their careers, and it offers a more rewarding career path than may be found in a general practice firm.

McAndrews' successful summer associates program is an essential part of the firm's growth. In fact, more than 75 percent of the firm's current partners began their careers with us as summer associates. Each year, the program attracts some of the nation's brightest IP and technology law students, all of whom possess advanced technical training and/or academic degrees, along with their legal education.

Our founding partners - two highly respected law professors at Northwestern University and two former members of a prominent Chicago firm - were soon joined by like-minded colleagues also seeking an alternative to the large law firm environment. We have grown steadily ever si...
