The Firm

Your team of trusted advisors and steadfast champions.

Clients have told us they rely on our firm because we combine sound, strategic thinking with smart, tireless advocacy. They note that we’re conscientious about allocating resources, helping them rein-in costs. They’re confident we can represent them locally, regionally, and internationally armed with a deep understanding of their business. Our clients come from a wide range of industries to work with attorneys who are immersed in their specialties with rich networks and in-depth perspective. The results we achieve through the strength of our client relationships help explain why our attorneys have been recognized by their peers as some of the best in the country, and why so many of our clients recommend us to others.

98% of surveyed clients say they’ll stick with us.

We regularly ask our clients how we’re performing in a formal anonymous survey. And we’re often humbled by the results. In our most recent survey, we received some of the highest scores our researchers have seen with regard to satisfaction and client loyalty. We think it’s in recognition of the responsiveness, value, and results we consistently deliver.

Overview

Independent thinking – at work for you. With the variety in our clients’ complex businesses and lives, we make one simple promise: to provide value and deliver results. This unifying mission gives everyone at the firm a consistent focus that carries across every office and throughout every specialized practice.

Of course value and results mean something unique for each client, however, we consistently hear our clients say we add real value to their businesses.

We passionately foster client loyalty and regularly survey our clients to measure their satisfaction—with our firm and our attorneys. This in-depth feedback also guides investments into our infrastructure, processes, and professional development so that, each year, Hinckley Allen becomes even more responsive and effective in establishing some of our profession’s deepest relationships.

Take a look as some of our attorneys and clients discuss how this kind of partnership contributes to the success of our clients’ businesses.
