Donald L. Mrozek Re-elected to Three-Year Term as Chairman of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP
Donald L. Mrozek has been re-elected to serve a three-year term as the Chairman of Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, a 500 attorney firm with 22 offices in 11 states. Mr. Mrozek has filled the role of firm Chairman since 1989.
"The partners voted overwhelmingly to re-elect Don to this post, reflecting their confidence in the firm and it's future," said firm Managing Partner J. William Roberts. Significant accomplishments in recent years include moving to a practice-based leadership, implementation of a vibrant diversity initiative, and the establishment of a consulting practice — Hinshaw Consulting LLP.
"During Don's tenure, Hinshaw has become a national law firm providing a wide range of litigation, transaction, and advisory services to a broad range of clients" said Hinshaw's Vice Chairman, Kevin J. Burke. "More importantly, as the firm and the industry emerge from the financial challenges of recent years, Hinshaw partner earnings have increased and debt is down."
"I am enthusiastic about serving as Chairman for another three years," said Mr. Mrozek. "We have come a long way, but like law firms everywhere, face many issues as we embrace the future. We look forward to the challenge."
During Mr. Mrozek's tenure, revenue has increased fourfold; the number of lawyers has risen from 285 to 500, and the number of offices has gone from 11 to 22.
Mr. Mrozek joined Hinshaw in 1973. He devotes much of his practice to representing clients in business litigation and fidelity, surety, and fiduciary bond claims. He has designed, implemented, and managed national and regional litigation programs for corporate clients. Mr. Mrozek also provides general corporate and transaction counsel to clients, with a particular emphasis on transaction planning and legal risk assessment, and has conducted internal independent investigations for corporations and insurers involving allegations of fraud or misconduct.
Mr. Mrozek received his J.D., with honor, from DePaul University (1973) and his B.S.E. from Northwestern University (1969).
