Schoenberg, Finkel, Newman & Rosenberg, LLC Reviews

- Reviewed on September 16, 2018

Advice to law firm management: The personality of the firm is its key feature. Keep up the laid back atmosphere, commitment to rewarding productivity and having some low cost perks still available.

Pros: SFNR boasts a diverse group of extremely talented attorneys in all practice areas, typically found in larger firms. This smaller firm of 25 or so attorneys rewards productivity, features a collaborative environment, no egos and no screamers. It's a great firm to grow a practice without the pressures of high billable hours. Much lower and flexible billing rates allow for easier client development and retention. Friendly atmosphere.

Cons: There are really no negatives here, but attorneys coming from larger firms may find the lack of "flash" to be different from what they're used to. Due to the lower billing rates and little billable hour pressure, some of the perks of larger firms are not available but are not missed.

Partners to Avoid and Why: All of the partners here are extremely approachable, with an open door policy. There are no partners to avoid.

Favorite Things About this Firm: Without a doubt: the people. It's critical to work in a place where you like the people you work with. At SFNR, the attorneys and staff are all friendly, and you look forward to firm lunches, cocktails and other ways to get to know everyone.

Current or former employee?: Current Employee

Job type: Full time

The founding vision of Barack Ferrazzano in 1984 was to create a new model that departed from the standard "mega-firm" approaches and, instead, focused on delivering efficient, team-oriented services of the highest quality. 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.
