New York-based firm Schoeman, Updike & Kaufman announced the opening of a new office in Chicago, which will be headed by Stephanie Scharf, formerly a partner at Jenner & Block and the former president of the National Association of Women Lawyers. It is the first women�-owned firm to have offices in New York City and Chicago, and one of only a few that have offices in two major metropolitan areas. “The firm will continue to emphasize alternative fee arrangements for corporate clients, flexible work time in order to tap into highly skilled lawyers who wish a different life style than large firms typically allow, and teaming with other firms in order to parlay the benefits of small firm culture into representation on large matters,” said partner Beth Kaufman. The Chicago office will focus on litigation, but plans to also expand its real estate business law and trusts and estates practices as well.
