A law firm unlike any other.

It’s not easy to maintain a standout law firm culture. We’re proud that Much, year after year, remains focused on service and shared values, with great legal minds and a dedicated staff. We promote a collaborative and collegial work environment for both attorneys and staff that ultimately benefits our clients.

Our culture is what truly sets us apart and allows us to earn the trust and confidence of our clients. And others are noticing, too. For six consecutive years, the Chicago Tribune has recognized Much as one of the city’s top workplaces. Together, attorneys and staff at Much have created a great place to work—one that is strengthened by a culture of collaboration and the desire to go the extra mile, making us that much better. 

“Culture is critically important to us at Much. We are lawyers and trusted business advisors. We are also moms, dads, sons and daughters, soccer coaches and community volunteers. Everything we do is based on shared values and a steadfast commitment to delivering our best – to our clients, our families and our community.”

- Mitchell Roth, Managing Partner

In their own words.

Culture is king at Much, and our attorneys aren't afraid to shout it from the rooftops. Whether it's our spirit of collaboration, a commitment to celebrating diversity or the opportunity to live a balanced life, they recognize and appreciate what a great culture means for our people as well as our clients.

  • One defining characteristic of the culture at Much is collaboration. Our administrative departments and attorneys across all practices work together to achieve our goals. Whether it's exchanging ideas on a complex legal matter, playing in the firm's softball league or giving back to our community, we do it as a team. The culture of collaboration makes for a highly collegial and supportive work environment and ultimately results in superior client service.

  • Much is committed to creating a culture that celebrates diversity. Like many others in the legal industry, we're still working on it, but firm leaders genuinely believe that diversifying our attorney demographics is essential to the health of our business. As a woman, I am respected and encouraged to lead major projects, and I know that my colleagues recognize the value I bring to client relationships.
  • Much prioritizes work-life balance. On the work side, I'm able to take on new challenges that I would not have access to as an associate at most other firms, including growing my practice and doing complex work with a wide range of clients. On the life side, I have the flexibility to pursue my love of travel without feeling like I'm jeopardizing my career. Being able to live a balanced life has made for a very satisfying professional experience.
