Schiff Hardin LLP is a national law firm with more than 300 attorneys practicing out of seven offices nationwide — Ann Arbor, Chicago, Lake Forest, New York, Newport Beach, San Francisco and Washington, DC. It is a general practice firm serving corporate clients in a number of practices.
The firm was founded in 1864 as Hitchcock & Dupee and ranks as one of Chicago's oldest law firms. In its early years, it represented the Chicago City Railway Company and Chicago Transit Authority. In 1889, Hitchcock & Dupee gained Northern Trust as a client; today the company still turns to Schiff Hardin for all matters of legal advice. The firm acquired its current name in 2004.
Schiff Hardin opened a Washington, D.C. office in 1977. An office in New York City (1991) followed. 2002 brought a suburban Chicago office in Lake Forest. In 2007, the firm merged with Morgenstein & Jubelirer to open a San Francisco office, followed by an Ann Arbor, Michigan office in 2012.
