About Hueston Hennigan
Our Team: Unmatched Talent at Every Level
Our attorneys have collectively participated in over 150 trials, and our partners are recognized as among the country’s top trial lawyers. At trial, our diverse teams reflect the profiles of our juries.
We select the most talented attorneys and train them like no other firm, offering clients the strongest teams from top to bottom. Our attorneys hail from the top law schools in the country, including Yale, Harvard, Stanford, Columbia, Chicago, NYU, Michigan, Georgetown, USC, UVA and UCLA.
More, nearly 70 percent of our incoming attorneys have served as judicial clerks for federal judges, which provides key insights into arguments that resonate with t rial and appellate judges. We have developed a ladder-of-success training approach and, in conjunction with our commitment to public service, guarantee at least one trial in the first two years for each of our incoming associates, with a goal of at least five trials within the first five years. This approach to hiring and training allows us to staff cases leanly and ensure that clients have the benefit of trial experience at all levels.
