Our Vision


The Road To A First-Class, Full-Scope Law Firm

Our vision is to emerge as a first-class, full-scope law firm with which businesses desire to associate because our consistent, proficient team delivers an exceptional experience in tailor-made, comprehensive, and value-added legal services. When a CEO asks his or her general counsel for the best lawyers in town, we want to be on the short list, particularly when the stakes are high, the matter is complex, and the parties appear unyielding.

We will continue to magnify the depth of our practice groups, as well as add new groups in order to provide clients with a broad range of quality services.

Because of our diverse experiences as litigators and trial attorneys, we can offer multi-layered understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of claims and defenses and are able to help litigators and their clients recognize when it is in their best interest to “give a little more” or “take a little less” based on our insightful analysis of the facts, the law, and how judges are likely to respond to their arguments. In addition, we will grow our legal team by selectively adding attorneys who can bring a new and distinct approach to client satisfaction in some of most complex and interesting issues affecting businesses and governments around the globe. This vision influences and underlines all Schinder’s behavior, decisions, and interactions.
