With boots on the ground from coast to coast, we are positioned to help our clients wherever their business takes them whether they are down the street or across an ocean. Schiff has the broad reach to meet the needs of domestic and international clients.

Visiting Schiff Hardin Offices (Updated August 2021)

All visitors to Schiff’s offices must be vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination. At least 48 hours before visiting a Schiff office, your Schiff contact will ask you to complete a questionnaire and provide instructions for uploading proof of vaccination. Once you complete the survey and provide proof of vaccination, you will not be required to do so for subsequent visits.

Masks are also required in common areas.

  • International

    With lawyers in New York, Washington, D.C., Chicago and San Francisco, our International Client Service Group is pioneering a new approach to international practice designed to meet the needs of our clients in the most cost-effective and time-efficient manner.

    For foreign companies doing business in the United States, our attorneys — who are bilingual or multilingual and are trained in one or more foreign legal systems — serve as outside U.S. General Counsel, managing and supervising corporate, commercial, employment, intellectual property and, of course, litigation work. These lawyers are assisted by colleagues in their offices as well as those in Schiff Hardin’s Ann Arbor and Lake Forest locations.

    For U.S. companies with operations abroad, we have developed relationships with a select group of major firms outside the United States that can assist us in representing our clients in countries worldwide. This “best-friends” approach is, we believe, the most economical, efficient way to deliver high-quality international legal services to our U.S. clients. Our foreign partners understand our U.S. clients’ need for compliance with domestic laws and regulations including, among others, FATCA, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, OFAC and ITAR.
