Career Development :
Attorneys and Law Firms

We are a unique career development firm, with a particular focus on working with Attorneys and Law firms. We treat each attorney-client as an individual with specific needs, goals and objectives. Our mission is to provide each client firm with a competitive advantage by enhancing the leadership and talent within their organization. We succeed at this mission by providing pragmatic, customized; consulting that is focused on the individual needs of attorneys, practice group heads and leaders.

Our HPi methodology ensures that every attorney client increases their self-awareness, acquires and/or improves essential behaviors and augments critical skills, needed to be successful, whether in a new leadership role or in searching for a new position. And, HPi utilizes the contacts acquired over ten years of service to the legal community, introducing clients to HPi alumni, recruiters, corporate contacts and search firms. Additionally, as the Midwest OI Partner, HPi can provide the same customized services through a network of over 105 offices in North America.

We are well positioned to customize all services to fit each client’s specific needs, whether the focus is leveraging skills to move into a partnership role, in-house counsel, government, or a new business. All HPi services are customized to fit each client needs – whether performance, leadership or career transition.

All HPi services are developed and delivered in conjunction with each law firm’s current needs, business direction and culture. With a coaching team comprised of four attorneys and J.D.’s, the HPi consulting staff have unparalleled experience in working with attorneys and law firms. We have pioneered talent management services for the Chicagoland legal community and through our OI Partners network, we are now able to deliver customized consulting for attorneys and law firms in 31 states and Canada.

HPi well understands that every law firm is unique in how it approaches professional development and human capital management. We align our services with firm needs, offering suggestions on best practices. Consulting services developed specifically for the Legal Community include:

  • Career Transition Services for Attorneys and Staff
  • Performance Coaching for legal professionals
  • Leadership Coaching for newly appointed Practice Group heads or Partners
  • Assessment and Talent Development Services

No other talent management firm has as many J.D’s and attorneys on staff. Our team of coaches has worked with hundreds of Chicagoland lawyers. We provide one-on-one customized career consulting and individualized action plans for each client. In addition, we provide personalized introductions to key decision makers and members of the HPi alumni network. We bring a pragmatic, action oriented approach to each client engagement. Our work with each client is confidential, practical and our advice candid and time proven.
When we meet, HPi will be happy to provide you with names and contact information of attorneys who have agreed in advance to serve as references.
