The firm is known for providing highly sophisticated legal services to national and international clients that include public and private, middle market and emerging companies, as well as private equity funds, entrepreneurs, not-for-profit organizations, trusts and estates.

Strength Through Growth

Our firm celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2018 and continues to expand geographically and grow steadily. Since 2015, we have had extraordinary success in welcoming many new attorneys; increasing our number of attorneys firm-wide to our current total of 225; opening a Chicago office (now nearly 50 attorneys strong); and establishing a San Francisco office in early 2019.

Many of our new attorneys are highly-accomplished partners who have joined us from “Big Law” firms, bringing even more depth and breadth to our practices. These attorneys joined Benesch to be part of the exciting growth, entrepreneurial spirit and ability to service clients by providing elite talent under a sustainable cost structure that eliminates unnecessary overhead. The strategic addition of these attorneys and of our Chicago office is part of our goal to continuously enhance the quality of service we provide to our clients.

Proactive Today, Forward-Thinking for Tomorrow

We are proud of the client relationships we have developed and work hard to maintain them. Our clients tell us they value our overall business acumen and our commitment to building a deep understanding of their businesses and industries. Our attorneys serve as trusted counselors, advocates, and partners in all aspects of a legal or business issue. Today’s fast-paced and ever-changing business climate makes it essential to not only proactively address today’s needs but also look ahead. We practice for tomorrow so our clients are ready for what’s next.
