litigation boutique

Summary: Litigation boutiques are becoming the go to place for clients over BigLaw because the attorneys are often highly qualified former BigLaw partners.

Litigators at BigLaw firms may find the pay rates and issues from other departments frustrating. Analysts say that litigation boutiques offer attorneys the same opportunities as BigLaw to represent top-tier clients in high-profile cases.


Many of these litigation boutiques are from BigLaw attorneys starting their own firms in order to escape the problems they faced at the big firms. Read about these eight litigation boutiques that have the talent to compete with BigLaw litigation departments.

Robbins Russell Englert Orseck Untereiner & Sauber LLP– There is 29 attorneys at this firm that have an excellent record with the U.S. Supreme Court. Some of their clients include Northrop Grumman Corp. and Bank of New York Mellon Corp.

Hangley Aronchick Segal Pudlin & Schiller– This firm has 50 attorneys. They are very selective about who they hire, adding to their highly-respected reputation. They look at graduates from the top-25 law schools and those that have a federal clerkship.
