More than 125 years ago, Aronberg Goldgehn was founded by two young attorneys in Chicago who began their own firm, known then as Newman & Northrup. The firm began in 1892, and focused on handling business transactions and banking matters. The firm experienced continued growth throughout the 1900’s by maintaining its founding characteristics; loyalty, steadfast determination, and, most importantly, a commitment to a high level of quality and integrity in the services provided to every client.
Expanding its reach as it grew in size, the firm evolved by adding the many practice areas that allow the firm’s attorneys to provide comprehensive services as clients’ trusted advisors and advocates. Rather than downsize, like many businesses and firms were forced to do when faced with the economic downturn of 2008, the firm remained a loyal partner to staff and clients, continuing its growth and success as a mid-sized law firm representing businesses, financial institutions, families and individuals in nearly every major area of practice.
Today, Aronberg Goldgehn continues to preserve our founding principles by placing a strong emphasis on our clients, culture, and firm values. The firm’s personnel and clients are by far our greatest assets, and they continue to support and build our lasting practice. With roots deeply engrained in the city of Chicago, Aronberg Goldgehn is proud to continue the history and legacy Newman & Northrup set in motion so many years ago.
Our Underlying Philosophy
The greatest factor in our firm’s success over the years has been our understanding that our law practice starts with the personal relationships we build with every client. Being fortunate to have clients ranging from large institutional companies, such as banks and other financial institutions, insurance companies, manufacturers, developers, and major professional service corporations, to mid-sized and smaller entrepreneurial businesses, sole proprietorships, individuals, and families has reinforced the importance of that notion.
Each attorney at Aronberg Goldgehn Davis & Garmisa believes that in order to best serve and build a positive relationship with every client, we must take the time to get to know them personally and to understand all of the issues affecting them. We dedicate ourselves to the successful resolution of their matters as though they were our own, ever mindful that deep down we are not only in the legal business -- we are also in the people business. That is Practice Made Personal®
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion - Our Core Principles
Aronberg Goldgehn embraces diversity, equity and inclusion as core principles. We value diversity in our people, our professional colleagues, our clients and our vendors. We value the unique ideas, experiences and viewpoints that people of different backgrounds bring to our firm. Aronberg Goldgehn is also dedicated to fostering an inclusive working environment that is welcoming and comfortable for people of different backgrounds, beliefs, opinions and affiliations.
The firm is committed to recruiting, developing, retaining and promoting talented individuals from groups historically underrepresented in our profession. We believe that the collaboration of people from diverse backgrounds fosters creative problem solving, the delivery of high quality legal services and greater client satisfaction – which are all central to our continued success as a firm.
