Firm Overview:
Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP is a full-service firm with offices in Pennsylvania, New York, California, Washington, D.C., New Jersey, Delaware and an affiliation with a law firm in Jakarta. It provides businesses, government entities, nonprofit organizations and individuals throughout the world with innovative, practical, and cost-effective solutions to their legal needs. It also provides wealth management legal services to individuals. Schnader attorneys work with clients of all sizes across many industries. Since 1935, Schnader’s hallmark has been its dedication to what its founders called ‘the higher calling of the law.’ That phrase embodies the firm’s mission, which is: substantive excellence, client service, and pro bono work to advance equality and justice. A commitment to equality and inclusion has been a hallmark of the firm since its beginning when its founders were forced to start the firm due to discrimination preventing them from getting positions at other established law firms. Schnader attorneys practice a service philosophy. Mentoring is the focus of attorney and staff development, and giving back is their passion.
