We invite you to explore this website to learn more about Much Shelist, our unique culture and the opportunities we offer.

We Love Our Staff

Law firms are intense places to work. Every attorney at Much Shelist knows things run more smoothly here because of the efforts of our dedicated staff. An office full of lawyers alone wouldn’t get much done. We never lose sight of that fact. And we maintain a community of respect and appreciation for the contributions of every employee.

We do great work for our clients, but we also know how to have a great time. The high attendance we enjoy at firm-sponsored events—such as monthly staff lunches, annual ping pong tournament and baking competition, holiday party, summer outing, health & fitness program, Diversity Day celebration and summer softball games—shows just how much we genuinely like each other. At Much Shelist, our staff is as much a part of the team (softball or not) as anyone. In fact, our first nomination for the Chicago Tribune Top Workplaces honor came from one of our staff members, not an attorney.
