About Hone Law

The Hone team collaborates around a table

Litigation Refined

Hone Law is built of former BigLaw professionals who witnessed, first-hand, the weaknesses inherent at typical law firms and committed to do something about it. Traditional law firm structure encourages expensive legal services, homogenous teams of lawyers, and stilted business strategies that fail to serve client priorities. Hone Law designed its business model to attract and retain legal professionals with complex commercial litigation expertise and unique real-world experience to build a more agile firm for our clients.

The Hone Law Difference

Client Priority Focused

We are keenly aware our clients have businesses to build. Legal disputes can be a cost and a distraction. We learn your priorities at case intake, then custom-design a strategy to address those needs.

True Multipoint Perspective

Diversity is our superpower. Like a judge or a juror, an attorney’s real-world experience informs his or her view of your case. We harness our team’s multi-point perspective to consider all the angles then pinpoint your most persuasive strategy.

Refined Leadership

The jostling for position typical in the Partner/Associate format distracts legal professionals from their proper priority: your case. We collaborate internally and turn our competitive edge against your adversaries.

Sharp Legal Expertise

We hire experts and allow them to specialize. Every team member that touches your case is motivated, engaged, and executing their highest skill on your behalf.

Systemized Knowledge Sharing

We systemize the way our professionals share knowledge. This allows us to deliver all the benefits of a diverse, expert driven team while providing you cost conscious value.

Peak Performance Motivated

Our professionals are rewarded for competence and results, not billing to burnout. We structure our team’s schedule to ensure that the legal professionals working on your case have fresh eyes and clear minds.

How this Improves Our Practice

Trial & Arbitration Success Rate

At Hone Law, we do not shy away from a courtroom battle. If it is in the best interest for our client to fight, that is exactly what we do. We take multiple complex commercial cases to trial each year, and we win. We aren’t just experienced litigators, our trial advocacy skills are fresh, up to date, and frequently practiced.

Improved Diversity of Views & Insights

The “echo chamber” is where lawsuits are commonly lost. Litigation is a process of advocacy; our goal is to persuade decisionmakers our client should prevail. Tight analysis, compelling storytelling, and reliable legal advice are the end products of clear thinking and pressure testing. We use our team’s varied set of values, personal histories, legal experience, and cultural histories to strike upon our client’s most persuasive position.

Improved Client Experience

We provide our clients a tailored litigation experience. With our internal collaboration model and systemized knowledge sharing, we can provide our clients with more frequent and detailed updates, budget assessments, and strategy recommendations without increasing litigation costs.

Meet our Talented Team

Our team of legal professionals are, by design, a close-knit group with diverse backgrounds, specialized expertise, and successful history in the practice of complex commercial litigation. We collaborate to bring clients better ideas and more efficient legal services.
