Lateral Hires

Howard & Howard, a leading law firm focused on law for business, seeks entrepreneurial attorneys. Since 1869, our firm has grown with the businesses we represent. Our team of over 150 attorneys currently serves clients across the nation from office locations including Chicago, Detroit, Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Business is good; we are growing.
Unlike many established law firms, Howard & Howard operates like a business and promotes a culture based on successful business principles. We focus on maintaining low overhead, providing quality service at competitive hourly rates, and compensating our attorneys based on merit. Our success derives from the professional excellence exhibited by our attorneys and our ability to work collegially as part of a result-focused team. We foster and reward creativity, collaboration and accomplishment. Many long-term business clients often cite our practical approach to the business of law as the factor that distinguishes us from our competition.
Howard & Howard understands that the quality and experience of our lawyers are among our greatest strengths. We are committed to making a substantial investment in our lateral hires by fostering an environment in which they are seamlessly integrated into our Firm culture and supported in their continued quest for professional development and challenge. We help you build your business.

  • Compensation should be based exclusively on merit.
  • Profits should be distributed monthly, not annually.
  • The business of the legal practice must be collegial, transparent and entrepreneurial.
  • The Firm should efficiently handle the “back of the house” allowing lawyers to focus exclusively on their business.
  • Overhead should be limited to allow the maximum return of dollars to lawyer compensation.
