An Uncommon Approach

We have bold ambitions and we know you do too. That's why we value long-term partnerships over short-term gains. Because becoming a leader in your industry doesn't happen overnight.

Through our people, purpose, and practices, we build the strong relationships and solutions that go above and beyond.

Purpose

As trusted partners and problem solvers, our core strategy is to provide expert legal counsel through a business lens.

Our Purpose In Action

During a corporate merger, a spike in the nationwide litigation portfolio strained client resources. To restore balance, Husch Blackwell introduced an innovative proprietary algorithm and outside counsel billing suite. Process implementation decreased risk and spend while optimizing compliance, reporting quality, and allocation of resources to strengthen defenses. While the number of litigation matters increased by 35%, decreases were seen in time spent per matter (39%), law firm partner time (20-30%), average spend (30%), legal fees (10%), and active cases (53%).

People

With a culture built on teamwork and diverse perspectives, our people are committed to delivering an unparalleled client experience.

Our People In Action

The client experience isn’t just a buzzy marketing term we throw around. It’s something we hang our hat on. And the Net Promoter® Score (“NPS®” for short) is the standard when measuring client satisfaction for B2B firms. In 2023, our firm achieved a world-class 84 NPS®, far exceeding the legal industry average score of 37. Like we said, for us, it’s personal.

Practices

Built around the industries in which our clients operate, everything we do is designed to make it easy for clients to do business with our firm.

Our Practices In Action

From our comprehensive client onboarding to superior matter management, our tools and technologies are expertly tailored to each client’s objectives and individual preferences to produce optimal partnerships. Our approach isn’t just unique, it’s the real deal; we are the only firm to be recognized by both the CLOC LIO Project and ACC Value Champion award series for our ability to deliver legal solutions that cut spending, improve predictability and achieve better outcomes.

Husch Blackwell has the specific experience needed within my industry. They have a wide breadth of experience in the hundreds of legal issues that face universities and colleges each year. The team we work with is fantastic and I’m so pleased they added additional expertise to handle niche (but critical) NCAA work.
