Associate Reviews


  • “Lawyers often socialize throughout the day at the office, including grabbing lunch together. Some of my best friends are my coworkers. Many lawyers participate in both firm-organized and private social events with one another outside of normal business hours.”
  • “Very professional, social, and friendly colleagues. There are many firm-organized social opportunities every month, such as lunches, happy hours, and other group events.”
  • “Firm culture is friendly: daily lunch crew, monthly happy hours, and all-practitioner lunches. [There is a] patent prosecution roundtable and CLE opportunities. Weekly summer activities and summer lunch program mean lots of opportunities to socialize and get to know others at the firm”

Getting Hired Here


  • “Strong technical backgrounds are very important for patent attorneys, so our firm places a lot of value in undergraduate grades. Law school grades are still important though, and a strong writing sample will go a long way. We hire a lot from Chicago schools, including Kent, DePaul, and Northwestern. We also have a large presence from the University of Illinois.”
  • “I appreciate that MBHB is nontraditional in their hiring practices. This has allowed MBHB to create a successful and sustainable culture. Experience and advanced degrees are valued as much or more than law school grades. Class rank is never discussed when choosing an applicant. Diversity, personality, [and] professional (non-law) experience is valued. This allows MBHB to find unique talent that aligns with the firm goals and maintain these individuals.”
