ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
Frustrated with stodgy conventional methods of BigLaw management, 24 attorneys struck out on their own in 1974 to form Katten Muchin Zavis in the Windy City. With an emphasis on supporting an entrepreneurial and innovative culture that remains today, the firm built up its presence in Chicago for a decade and a half before eventually branching out to Los Angeles, Washington, DC and New York—all during a very busy 1989. Thirteen years later, Katten joined forces with venerable Manhattan firm Rosenman & Colin LLP, bolstering its New York and DC offices and adding new digs in Charlotte. The firm has since expanded to London through a strategic alliance and opened an office in Shanghai, but has thus far resisted following the BigLaw trend of growing at an exponential rate.
