Reichman Jorgensen LLP is an elite national trial firm relentlessly focused on putting clients first. We are a firm of trial lawyers specializing in complex commercial and intellectual property cases. For decades, our attorneys have been called on by the world’s most sophisticated clients because we know how to win, and recognize it only counts as a “win” if it serves our client’s needs.
Our success is grounded in elite talent – creative thinkers from diverse backgrounds; talented communicators and strategists who never will be out-thought or out-hustled; and passionate members of their communities committed to their duties as officers of the court in the highest traditions of the trial bar, representing those in need pro bono and serving the public interest. We bring a passion for trial advocacy that cannot be missed.
This is the heart of our approach. Job one is to understand our client’s needs, and then figure out how to use litigation to address them. Trials are not an end unto themselves, but a part of helping solve problems. We pride ourselves in working with clients to develop a thorough strategic approach.
No Billable Hours.
Our commitment to clients is reflected in our elimination of the billable hour. Its time has come. Our fee arrangements align interests, provide fee certainty, reward efficiency, and incentivize success. We work to win, unleashing our talented attorneys to work tirelessly to deliver exceptional results, and keep our clients coming back for more.
Elite Talent Exclusively.
We believe exceptional talent wins cases. Our attorneys are from the most prestigious clerkships, including the Supreme Court, the D.C. Circuit, the Federal Circuit, the 2nd, 6th, 7th, and 11th Circuits, and District Courts around the country, as well as such prestigious schools such as Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Columbia, Berkeley, NYU, and others. The firm’s lawyers have undergraduate and advanced technical degrees in such diverse fields as electrical engineering, physics, computer science, computer networks, biotechnology, and zoology.
Through our strategic alliance with the law firm of Kellogg Hansen Todd Figel & Frederick, we have the capability to partner with over 90 highly-credentialed, exceptional lawyers to staff our largest cases. We strive to be a nimble boutique trial firm, with the ability to “punch above our weight” by drawing on our partner Kellogg Hansen’s bench of talented attorneys, who have handled over 100 federal and state trials, argued 71 cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, and come from top-tier law schools and federal clerkships. We believe diverse talent brings a diversity of thought, experiences, and perspectives that inevitably improve decision making and communication with equally diverse judges and jury. This is not aspirational, it’s part of our DNA: 75% of our firm’s lawyers come from diverse backgrounds, and most of our ranks are talented women trial lawyers.
Our philosophy is simple – put clients first, field teams of exceptional lawyers, and do the hard work necessary to win. We believe a trial lawyer’s job is to simplify complex cases into understandable narratives and themes, allowing judges and juries to understand our client’s point of view, and why they should win. Our credibility before judges and juries is paramount. It reflects on our clients – without credibility, the message is lost. It makes no difference if you’re right if nobody is listening. We believe in extensive preparation – we never walk into court with less than complete mastery of the case. Direct, straightforward communication with our clients is a hallmark of our firm’s approach. Our attorneys are known for being easy to work with – whether it’s making in-house counsel’s job easier, addressing business issues with executives, or partnering with co-counsel.

Integrated Client Value Services.
We approach our cases with an eye toward the highest level of client service delivery. This involves frequent communication and transparency. We provide lawyer training in areas that improve client service and promote efficiencies, such as advanced project management skills. We are committed to state-of-the-art technology to improve results, partner better with our clients, and manage costs. We invest in communications systems and training that promote and ensure frequent client contact and forums for feedback.
We also believe in investing in client relationship enhancement programs, such as pro bono collaboration and CLE collaboration. Our client value services include a state of the art ESI and document discovery practice overseen by a firm Partner. The practice utilizes a hand-picked roster of document review attorneys using leading-edge technology platforms, overseen directly with quality-control systems, all at competitive prices. By providing such services in-house, the firm can improve quality and integrate tightly with our trial teams.
The Law Firm Of Tomorrow.
Our mission is to be the law firm of tomorrow: building enduring relationships of trust with our clients, lawyers, and communities; eliminating billable hours; rewarding elite talent for contributions; fostering true collaboration and client service; and investing in resources allowing our lawyers to fight to win the most important battles of the day. Our tradition includes deep commitment to public interest litigation. Our lawyers have handled cases involving civil rights, immigration, prison abuse, indigent defense, homelessness, and veterans’ issues, among many other things. Our privilege of being trial lawyers naturally involves representing those in need, whether high-profile impact litigation or a person who will be evicted from an apartment but for a lawyer willing to serve.
