Breaking the Algorithm (Northern California Super Lawyers Magazine 2022)


Officially, Neel Chatterjee is a partner in Goodwin's Intellectual Property Litigation practice. But that title is almost an afterthought on his business cards, where, in bold type, he describes himself as “Partner and Very Handsome Man.” Chatterjee smiles mischievously when asked about the card. “It adds a layer of humanity to the legal services,” he says. “And it’s one of the most useful recruiting and business development tools I’ve ever had. But that’s not the reason I do it. It’s just in my nature.” He adds, “If you look at the standard successful lawyer in the standard law firm, I just don’t fit that, nor do I really want to. I have a weird, quirky demeanor, which I’m proud of, but I never really knew if I would be able to work within a law firm.” Read the Northern California Super Lawyers Magazine cover story on Chatterjee here.
