The Chicago Business Lawyers to Call in Crisis
Unusual among commercial litigation law firms, we undertake
challenging business lawsuits: emergency business litigation,
insurance coverage cases, shareholder and LLC-member disputes,
construction and other of breach of contract claims, commercial
real estate lawsuits, and legal malpractice actions. In some cases,
the emergency creates the challenge. We have to know both the
underlying case (facts and law) plus the standards for obtaining
emergency remedies. In other cases, the opponent creates the
challenge. In legal malpractice cases, for example, we have to
prove the case
within the case (read more) and overcome the defendant's
lawyers who know the system and are well-funded.
The final challenge is legal fees. Because our firm is the size
of a boutique, we often offer contingent fee or blended
hourly-contingent fee arrangements that other business litigation
firms do not match. Even our hourly billing cases carry a guaranty.
Our purpose is to take the fear out of legal fees and focus on your
