HSPRD is delighted to announce the promotion of Charlie Wysong to Shareholder. Charlie’s outstanding legal expertise, leadership understanding, and commitment to community service make him an invaluable part of our firm.
Legal Expertise: Championing Whistleblower Rights
Charlie has recent success in representing whistleblowers in fraud claims, even when the government does not join the litigation. These sprawling, hotly contested cases often involve large corporations and a host of novel issues. “We’ve achieved recent multi-million dollar outcomes for our whistleblower clients, holding defendants accountable and securing meaningful compensation,” notes Charlie.
Leadership and Management: Nurturing Talent for Success
Charlie is committed to an inclusive environment where the firm’s success stems from talented and small teams. “We foster an atmosphere where all attorneys, including associates and junior attorneys, can handle meaningful work matching their skills and support their success,” he states.
Strategic Vision: Elevating Legal Service
Charlie envisions HSPRD as a provider of first-rate service and bespoke solutions. He aims to deepen connections with the Chicago legal community and strengthen collaborations with non-profit and advocacy partners. “Our attorneys want to work at HSPRD, where they can pursue their passions and contribute to meaningful causes, whether that is fighting for quality housing and education, combating discrimination, advancing LGBTQ and disability rights, or other issues.”
Client Relationships: Holistic Counsel for Success
Understanding the clients is the foundation of quality legal advice and counsel. Charlie emphasizes, “Exceptional service requires us to keep in mind clients’ goals and priorities, which are always more complex than simply winning a case in court.”.
Commitment to the Firm: Upholding a Legacy of Excellence
The firm’s reputation for progressive, engaged, purposeful lawyering motivates Charlie to maintain an exceptional workplace culture. “We care for the people who work here and seek to support them both professionally and personally, as we take on tough and important cases,” he notes.
Community Involvement: Advocating for Justice
As an active member of the legal community, Charlie believes in supporting non-profit partners, collaborating with law firms and legal service organizations on impactful litigation, and holding accountable institutions that fall short. “We prioritize ongoing support our advocacy partners in this work and collaborate often where litigation can help move a cause forward,” he explains.
The Firm is proud to welcome Charlie Wysong as a Shareholder, and we are confident in his ability to contribute significantly to our firm’s continued success and growth.
