"We are honored to serve hundreds of leading law firms and law departments around the world and are excited for the opportunity to continue providing innovative solutions and best-in-class guidance to our clients," said Nick Quil, CEO of HBR. "It's been amazing to lead HBR's growth, and I'm looking forward to seeing what more we will accomplish in the next decade and beyond as the legal industry continues to evolve alongside technology advances."

"While I'm humbled by our evolution as a company, the best is yet to come as we continue to drive innovation in the depth and breadth of our services," said Chris Petrini-Poli, executive chairman of HBR. "As the legal landscape becomes more complex, the investments we've made in our people, technology, and solutions will allow us to ensure the current success of our clients and partners while also helping them better plan for the future."


Founded in 2011, HBR has been instrumental in providing law firms and law departments with data-driven solutions through technical knowledge combined with industry expertise.

HBR currently serves 92 of the Am Law 100 law firms and 66 of the Fortune 100 corporate law departments. Its acquisitions, product innovation, and business expansion have resulted in an increasing array of services, with notable recent growth in the areas of technology and managed services. HBR's revenue has increased by 40% in the past two years, and it has hired over 240 new employees in 2021 alone, vastly exceeding its stated goal of adding 100+ employees per year. 

The 10th anniversary comes during a year of high growth and achievement for HBR, including:

  • Recognition on the Inc. 5000 list of America's Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the third consecutive year, which highlights a combination of significant revenue and year-over-year growth for HBR.
  • Recognition on Crain's 2021 Chicago Business Fast 50 list and on Crain's 2021 Chicago's Largest Privately Held Companies list.
  • HBR's March 2021 acquisition of Keno Kozie, a leading provider of information technology design, service, and help desk support to law firms and legal departments, to form the largest strategy, operations, and technology consulting firm in the legal industry, bringing together over 700 experts to serve its growing client base.


In addition to celebrating HBR's 10th anniversary, the brand refresh highlights HBR's commitment to supporting corporate law departments and law firms through strategic guidance, operational improvement, and technology solutions to drive innovation, manage cost, and mitigate risk.

"HBR's brand and website refresh is a fitting commemoration of the firm's first decade, reflecting HBR's evolution over that time and our role as an innovative leader in the legal industry," according to Kevin Clem, HBR's chief commercial officer. "HBR's tagline, 'An eye on today, a point of view on tomorrow,' is a promise to consistently help clients achieve near-term success and fulfill long-term potential through our strong partnerships with clients, our relationships spanning the legal ecosystem, and our experience and insights."
