Our clients demand the highest level of legal services, customized to fit their specific needs. To deliver these services efficiently and effectively, Husch Blackwell is structured by industry rather than by practice. After all, our clients aren’t organized by practice; they’re organized around markets and industries.
At Husch Blackwell, teams of lawyers with a depth of experience within a particular industry work together, across practice specialties, to deliver comprehensive solutions to help our clients achieve their business goals. Our partners, associates and legal professionals collaborate closely on client matters, so that each client benefits from the collective expertise of the firm.
With 16 offices across the U.S. and in London, Husch Blackwell has a heritage of nearly a century of exceptional legal service. We have a strong, sustained commitment to diversity and inclusion, and our attorneys are dedicated to serving their communities through a wide variety of pro bono work.

Husch Blackwell is a dynamic firm that places an emphasis on teamwork. We each contribute to the collegial, inclusive culture that makes this firm a great place to work, and we push each other to be innovative and creative as we tackle our clients’ challenges.
