Our Firm

Independent thinking, vast experience, and a team approach are our cornerstones.

Get In Touch

Industry know-how and a unique culture make us the law firm of choice for business.

From our founding above a blacksmith shop in 1869 to the full-service national and international practice we’ve become in the 150 years since, we have consistently sought to earn each client’s trust by always keeping one eye on the finish line and the other on the bottom line.

Rather than being merely a collection of silos, Howard & Howard is known for its integrated, multifunctional units, all of which are dedicated to providing well-rounded representation and advice. This approach exemplifies our culture.

Drawing from their vast qualifications and business backgrounds, our attorneys pool their talents into cross-disciplinary teams, combining creativity, practicality, and a cost-conscious approach to better serve each client as a whole. Because our lawyers are sound businesspeople, we operate more efficiently and entrepreneurially. We’re the firm our clients respect, want to work with, and choose to retain over the long term.

Regardless of where you are in the business life cycle and whether your needs involve transactions, disputes, regulatory compliance, or intellectual property, Howard & Howard is the law firm of choice.


We invest in the communities that give us so many benefits.

Cultivating an organization that reflects the clients we serve and the communities in which we work and live.

We believe in and support diversity and inclusion across the firm. As an equal opportunity employer, Howard & Howard will not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation), pregnancy, parental status, national origin, age, marital or veteran status, height, weight, disability, or any other protected status.

We are committed to fostering a collaborative workplace, and we seek to recruit, promote, and celebrate lawyers and staff from diverse backgrounds. Every person at Howard & Howard offers unique strengths, skills, and competencies, and by respecting and valuing each individual, we work together to provide clients with the best possible representation.

Any employee with concerns about discrimination in the workplace should bring these issues to the attention of the Firm's Director of Human Resources, Firm Counsel, or Chief Executive Officer. Employees can raise and make reports of discrimination without fear of retaliation. Discriminatory activity by any employee may result in disciplinary action of the employee, up to and including termination of employment.

State and federal law require employers to make accommodations to employees with disabilities who can be reasonably accommodated to enable them to perform the essential functions of their job. Employees with disabilities may request an accommodation for their disability by notifying the Firm in writing (attention to the Firm's Director of Human Resources) of the need for accommodation within 182 days of the date the employee knows or should know that an accommodation is needed.

Failure to properly notify the Firm will preclude any claim under federal, Michigan, Illinois, Nevada, or California law that the Firm failed to accommodate the employee.
