HCMC Legal Celebrates Grand Opening of New Location in Chicago

April 26, 2017 – Elected officials, community members, and legal and financial services professionals joined staff to celebrate the grand opening of the new office and document review center of HCMC Legal (“HCMC”) in downtown Chicago.  The state of the art center, located at 225 West Washington Street, includes five review rooms, management offices, and a breakroom as well as private conference rooms and a training facility.  Effective Monday, April 24, 2017, HCMC’s Chicago Discovery Review Center is open for business and ready for review projects of any size.

HCMC, the parent company of Hire Counsel and Mestel & Company, is a national leader in attorney placement, temporary staffing, document review management, and legal services since 1987.  Hire Counsel was named a Top 250 Company for Flexible Jobs in 2016 by FlexJobs, a trusted resource for job seekers.  Mestel & Company has been named as the winner of the Award for Best Attorney Placement Firm 2016 – USA in the 2016 CV Magazine Recruitment Awards as well as one of Lawdragon’s 100 Leading Legal Consultants and Strategists for 2016.

“Creating new jobs and leveraging local talent is essential for the success of Chicago and its people, so I want to thank HCMC for being an important partner with the City in this initiative,” said Deputy Mayor Steve Koch.  “Their new Chicago center can accommodate more than 100 contract employees, allowing HCMC to better serve the businesses of Chicago, provide opportunities for many people, and deepen their national footprint.”

HCMC is continuing to expand across the United States, with Chicago being its 12th location and Raleigh, NC, its 13th location, scheduled to open this summer.

With the grand opening, and as part of their initiative to create new jobs, contribute to the community, and foster the economic growth of the City, HCMC partnered with Cara Chicago, a non-profit organization that provides job training and placement for individuals affected by homelessness, poverty, incarceration, domestic violence, or addiction.  “We are excited to welcome HCMC to Chicago and are appreciative of the incredible support they have shown us,” said Maria Kim, CEO of Cara.  “Your donation will make an impact to our organization and to our City.”

“We are thrilled to have a new location in Chicago.  We chose this city because it’s an excellent place to build relationships, expand our services, and leverage the tremendous talent and resources it has to offer.  There are many excellent companies and law schools nearby.  Being in the Loop makes our location convenient for both clients and employees who may be commuting from the suburbs,” said Joan Davison, CEO of HCMC.  “Furthermore, we look forward to helping the community by driving revenue and growth for the local economy”.
