    Hilgers Graben Continues to Add Experienced Leadership with Partner Jamal M. Edwards

    Hilgers Graben PLLC welcomes another highly accomplished attorney to its litigation team in our new partner Jamal M. Edwards, who brings years of wide-ranging legal experience to the firm.

    An award-winning business attorney based in Chicago, Jamal has been repeatedly named a “Super Lawyer®” and has excelled in handling complex commercial and IP litigation cases. His prior experience includes having been a partner at Kirkland & Ellis and in-house counsel at Warming Trends and IBM. In addition to being an experienced litigator, Jamal is an entrepreneur who started his own law firm, turned around a medical center and research institution as CEO, and is certified as a business coach.

    “Our clients turn to our firm for sophisticated legal advice and litigation teams, and we deliver with great talent and an entrepreneurial spirit,” said firm owner Heather Hilgers. “Adding Jamal to our growing nationwide practice is a huge win for our firm and our clients, as he delivers first-class legal talent and possesses a keen entrepreneurial mind.”

    “I am thrilled to be joining Hilgers Graben and am excited about what’s ahead for me and for the firm,” said Jamal.  “From the first conversations with my new colleagues, I felt a sense of camaraderie, as their vision for delivering exceptional legal service in a cost-effective way so closely aligns with the practice I have been building over the last decade.”

    “That we continue to attract people like Jamal to Hilgers Graben is a testament to our ability to handle any size matter anywhere in the country as well as our focus on a “no jerks” culture,” said firm CEO Sterling Miller.  “Jamal is a perfect fit for both.”
