HMB Legal Counsel Reviews

- Reviewed on March 02, 2021

Pros: Good perks, technology and benefits. Associate and paralegal experience will depend entirely on what practice group you are in. Generally a good firm to either be an equity partner or a young attorney looking for a resume builder. For everyone else, practice area will dictate satisfaction.

Cons: Insufficient support staff for associates, some partners are unsupportive on their matters, internal politics and firm structure impact collaboration, no pro bono credit, workload is heavy and compensation should be higher. Some practice groups have great leaders and others do not. People are generally stretched very thin and firm is slow to react to associate requests.

Partners to Avoid and Why: Almost all equity partners should be avoided.

Favorite Things About this Firm: Great camaraderie among most associates. Firm is “entrepreneurial” and rewards rainmakers. Associates keep a small percentage of what they originate.

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...
