Changing for the better

Get your lawyers to either comply with law firm basics to succeed or start letting them go. Hire an outside consultant to review admin functions.

Friendly environment, work from home is better than most law firms, new hires across the board have been impressive.

Some admin departments only do what is in their job description, no cross training in most groups, managers don't backup their staff as they don't know how to do the work they are supervising.

The Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP received a fantastic review, and they deserve recognition.

Hire a replacement for Donald seeley

Nothing they can never seem to answer thier phones or follow through with what they say

Donald seeley is the most pathetic excuse of a lawyer and can't seem to do what he promises from the begining

A terrible firm in decline.

Break off the best of the firm for a merger.

This firm had a rich history that produced trial lawyers of note. It was traditional and never really evolved, although one leader did a lot to modernize it over a great deal of partner resistance and backstabbing.

Siloed, untrustworthy chairman, weak followers for partners, unprofitable and poor quality lawyers.

I do not have any advice to the firm management. As I have indicated, I believe Hinshaw is a well-managed law firm.

Hinshaw & Culbertson is a well-managed firm. The working environment is professional. Associates receive yearly performance reviews and also are eligible to receive bonuses based on their amount of billable hours. I worked there as an associate for approximately 5 years and found it to be a generally very good working environment.

In my opinion, like many or most large law firms, Hinshaw seems to reward attorneys who bring in clients/work (rainmakers), much more than it values the attorneys who work for the clients and whose excellent work is required to keep the clients satisfied.

In my five years of employment at Hinshaw, I did not encounter any current partner who I would avoid. I encountered only one partner who is no longer employed there that I would strongly advise people to avoid.

Hinshaw will treat you fairly. Hinshaw will compensate you fairly. If you have questions or concerns Hinshaw's human resources and/or management will attempt to address any issues.

Fair Hours, at the Cost of Proportionate Pay

Listen to and act upon peoples' complaints. Many people often got frustrated that two different people who put in vastly different amounts of effort often received the same outcomes. This just causes more turnover and instability.

They valued work-life balance and offered pleasant minor benefits around the office - major benefits like health insurance, etc. were also somewhat above average.

Management seemed out of touch - people often got away with not pulling their weight. It seemed your complaints were often ignored, or that you were not treated as an individual. Pay was not great, and, as a result, loafing or frustration were fairly common, and turnover could be high.

Get ready to work because this firm will put your nose to the grindstone from day one.

This firm can be an excellent fit for those who are committed to it. The client list is prestigious and the firm's court victories are impressive. But there is a lot of competition, so know that in advance.

There is a lot to learn here, and you will get experience in many areas of the law. There are also a lot of important contacts you can make here, and that may set you up to make or break your career. As many lawyers will tell you, establishing contacts is vital to the business.

The environment may not be for everyone. There is a cutthroat ethos among attorneys and there is a strong desire to get ahead. If you don't want to compete directly with your colleagues on a daily basis, this may not be the opportunity for you. You may want to keep looking.
