Husch Blackwell guides clients from where they are to where they want to be by blending deep industry experience and legal know-how to help clients address their most complex and sophisticated challenges. Our firm serves clients in six main industry groups—energy and natural resources; financial services and capital markets; food systems; healthcare, life sciences and education; real estate, development and construction; and technology, manufacturing and transportation—which serve as multidisciplinary, problem-solving teams capable of bringing the right mix of legal and business expertise to bear on each matter.

The firm places great importance on maintaining a collegial culture built on teamwork. Partners, associates, and legal professionals collaborate closely across practice specialties and across the firm’s 21 offices. Given our emphasis on—and the necessity of—teamwork, Husch Blackwell is committed to ensuring that attorneys feel supported and have the tools to succeed both as lawyers and as business advisors.

The firm’s commitment to professional development is evident at all levels. Our HB Academy provides comprehensive training to entry-level associates on essential topics, including firm culture and structure, law firm economics, associate progression and career management. A competency-based level system allows associates to advance by developing practice-based skills and meeting performance standards.  Midlevel associates are selected to participate in an emerging leadership workshop, HB Emerge, and newly elected/lateral partners receive intensive strategic and leadership instruction at HB University. In addition to mentoring, training and CLE programs, the firm has a sponsorship initiative designed to advance the careers of its talented diverse and female attorneys and to expand diversity within firm leadership.

Husch Blackwell encourages attorneys to provide pro bono legal services, and it financially supports organizations that offer legal aid to persons of limited means. In 2022, the firm performed more than 21,882 hours of pro bono service.
