Michael Best Celebrates Chicago Office's 25th Year

Chicago Daily Law Bulletin

Chicago Daily Law Bulletin featured Michael Best in the article "Michael Best celebrates Chicago office's 25th year" on June 15, 2015.

"When Michael Best & Friedrich LLP hires new lawyers, it looks beyond resumes.

'We have a ‘no-jerks’ policy at the firm, which is we will not hire jerks,' said Kerryann M. Haase Minton. 'That doesn’t mean that we don’t have really smart, aggressive litigators. What that means is that we don’t hire attorneys who belittle or berate or are yellers or screamers at other people.'

Although Minton, the Chicago office’s managing partner, may have given the 'no-jerks policy' its name, she said this culture has been with the firm since its founding.

Michael Best celebrated the 25th anniversary of its Chicago office this past spring. The Milwaukee-based defense firm has more than 220 attorneys nationwide and practices in litigation, employment, intellectual property and transactional law, which includes corporate, securities, real estate, taxes and other subgroups."
