Chambers and Best Lawyers Honors for Hirschfeld Kraemer and its Managing Partners

Chambers & Partners has recognized Hirschfeld Kraemer LLP and its two managing partners, Steve Hirschfeld and Glen Kraemer, in the 2020 edition of Chambers USA. And Best Lawyers has named Steve Hirschfeld its “2020 Lawyer of the Year in Employment Law – San Francisco.”


Each year Chambers & Partners identifies the best law firms and lawyers in the United States through a rigorous independent research process, which includes thousands of independent peer and client interviews. Steve Hirschfeld and Glen Kraemer were each recognized by Chambers as leaders in the field of Labor & Employment Law.

In an independent interview with Chambers, one client noted that Steve is “everything you would hope and expect of an experienced attorney on employment-related matters.” Another client stated that Glen is “always very present when he listens to you, he captures all the critical points and then some, and offers sound advice. He is always calm and very nice to work with. He is truly there for his client and we appreciate him more than I can express in my words.”

Chambers & Partners also recognized Hirschfeld Kraemer LLP in Tier 4 in Labor & Employment Law in California. We are the only California boutique employment law firm to be named in the Chambers 2020 publication.

In assessing Hirschfeld Kraemer, one client told Chambers that the firm’s “experience and expertise in matching right resources to our task was fantastic.” Another client said they appreciate the “straightforward, clear and concise communication,” while a third client noted the firm is “always responsive, with thorough and practical guidance.”


In addition to naming Steve Hirschfeld as “2020 Lawyer of the Year in Employment Law – San Francisco,” Best Lawyers also recognized the firm in Tier 2 in two categories: (1) Employment Law – Management, and (2) Litigation/Labor & Employment.

Best Lawyers’ research is based entirely on peer review, with methodology designed to capture the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area. Best Lawyers’ honors only those lawyers with the highest overall peer feedback for a specific practice area and geographic region, and recognizes only one lawyer as the “Lawyer of the Year” for each specialty and location.

Congratulations to Steve, Glen, and the firm!
