Who We Are
The founding vision of Barack Ferrazzano in 1984 was to create a new model that departed from the standard "mega-firm" approaches and, instead, focused on delivering efficient, team-oriented services of the highest quality. Our founding partners - two highly respected law professors at Northwestern University and two former members of a prominent Chicago firm - were soon joined by like-minded colleagues also seeking an alternative to the large law firm environment. We have grown steadily ever since.
Barack Ferrazzano is not structured to be all things to all clients. However, the high levels of internal flexibility and extraordinary talent within our organization allow us to craft unusually practical and economical solutions to match client challenges and needs. This business-oriented approach has led many clients to engage Barack Ferrazzano to handle complex, time-sensitive, and high-stakes matters. Our reputation is based on our people and the results they achieve. The attorneys we select - many from the country's most renowned law firms and top U.S. law schools - leverage the environment we have created to become some of the finest lawyers available today.
