Complex, widely publicized personal injury cases threaten businesses not only with the prospect of an expensive verdict but also with a potentially disastrous diversion from the organization’s commercial focus. Especially vulnerable are mid-sized companies, which have made great sacrifices to grow their businesses and are looking to do more. These and other organizations understand the value of sophisticated advice on how to effectively manage these cases.

Great job at summarizing the status of a case and clearly defining what remaining discovery needs to be done and a clear litigation resolution plan based on discovery and interests of the client

Commitment to Diversity
Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP is committed to recruiting, retaining and promoting its attorneys and staff members regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, physical ability, religion, sexual orientation or personal background. We aspire to be a firm whose members reflect the diversity of the communities where we do business. Hinshaw believes that achieving this objective has positive business, economic and social consequences for our firm and our communities. We are committed to maintaining this objective in both the short and long terms. Consistent therewith, the firm actively and aggressively seeks to hire, retain and promote minority attorneys, including African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians and Native Americans.
Diversity Initiatives and Accomplishments
Hinshaw has a longstanding commitment to ensuring that our firm represents the communities in which we practice. With a formal Diversity Initiative led by the firm's Diversity Committee, our recruiting and hiring programs, our partner promotions and management assignments reflect this result-focused commitment to diversity:
Hinshaw takes pride in our commitment to ensuring that all of our associates are mentored and trained thereby providing clients with the highest level of quality service. Our formal mentoring program is specifically tailored to support minority associates in their advancement in the firm and in meeting their professional goals and aspirations.
Each of Hinshaw's business regions is required to set forth annually a strategic plan for diversity. These plans are submitted to the Diversity Committee for review and acceptance, and are ultimately approved and monitored by our Management Committee. Each year the region or office that has most advanced Hinshaw's diversity objectives is presented with the Chairman's Diversity Award. Accompanying this award is a substantial donation made by the firm to a charity or organization of the region's choice, whose vision includes diversity.
Hinshaw encourages our attorneys to participate in organizations and associations that enhance their professional, civic and cultural development. As a result, many of our attorneys are active members in a wide variety of community, women- and minority-based organizations. Some serve as leaders of these organizations, including as a Regional Governor for the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association; Board Member for the Hispanic Lawyers Association of Illinois; Treasurer and Executive Board Member of the Mexican American Bar Association; Board of Governors Member of the Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association; and Board Member of the Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association. Other firm members have formerly held top leadership positions in minority-based organizations, including President of the Asian American Bar Association; President of the Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association; and President of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association.
Hinshaw is a participating signatory of the Chicago Bar Association's Alliance for Women's "Call to Action," a project to promote women's leadership in the legal profession. This dovetails with the firm¿s involvement with the Women's Bar Association of Illinois where a firm partner serves as President.
Hinshaw is also a participating signatory of the Bar Association of San Francisco's No Glass Ceiling Initiative whose main goals include having at least 25 percent of women in partnership positions and at least 25 percent of women in management positions.
Because of the firm's national presence, we are involved in many national, state and local organizations. The following is just a sampling of those organizations to which our members belong or which Hinshaw actively supports with both our time and financial contributions:
Finally, reflecting our diversity and desire to serve our communities, our lawyers across the country are fluent in 20 different languages.
