We think the future is bright. both our future, and yours.

In a year that has seen larger firms rescind offers and defer incoming hires, we are busier than ever. That’s why we are hiring. We’re Spertus, Landes & Umhofer, and we think the future is bright; both our future, and yours.

We’re a 22-lawyer litigation powerhouse made up of former federal prosecutors, public defenders, big firm alumni, and judicial clerks. From the college admissions scandal cases to the FIFA bribery prosecution, we take on some of the most challenging cases out there and appear regularly in federal and state courts handling critically important civil and criminal litigation. We also vindicate whistleblowers, fend off government enforcement actions, conduct internal investigations, and take high-stakes cases to trial. And we staff our cases leanly, which means you will get the responsibility and mentoring that’s hard to find in BigLaw.

We could list our big wins, interesting cases, and multiple practice areas, but you can find all that here on our website. Instead, we’ll just say this: we’re a young, up-and-coming firm full of smart people who are passionate about their work, love to litigate, and win a lot. And we’re looking for like-minded folks to join us.

If this is the experience you’re looking for, send us an email at We look forward to hearing from you.
