Overview

Schiff Hardin litigators are fearless advocates for each of our clients. Whether it’s a Fortune 500 client battling bet-the-company litigation or a start-up trying to resolve a contract dispute, we can help. We have represented clients in state and federal courts throughout the country.   

With our clients, we take the long view. We work closely with them to identify and manage risk, allocate their litigation resources wisely, and resolve problems with an eye toward preventing future litigation.

We thrive on tough problems that have no easy solutions. We solve our clients’ most difficult legal challenges by taking the time to fully understand how the dispute impacts operations and growth. Once we are clear on the client’s goals, we create a strategy to get the job done. We work in lean teams, making communication straightforward and workflow efficient.

When a dispute needs to be resolved quickly to keep a project on track or to preserve an existing business relationship, we can create a mediation or arbitration strategy that works.

But when the situation calls for a seasoned trial team, our diverse group of more than 150 litigators has the experience and bench strength to win against the toughest opponents. We have tried cases to verdict in some of the most hostile jurisdictions in the country, where the odds have been stacked against us, and we have repeatedly prevailed.
