Business Lawsuits: Experience, Enthusiasm and Value
Unusual among commercial
litigation law firms, we undertake challenging business
lawsuits: emergency business litigation; insurance coverage
cases; shareholder, partnership, and LLC-member disputes;
construction and other breach of contract claims;
commercial real estate lawsuits; and legal malpractice
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 and overcome the
defendant 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
unique guaranty. Our purpose is to take the fear out of
legal fees and focus on your case!
Business Experience and Trial Skills
Clients want to know that their lawyers have experience.
Our top four lawyers have more than 123 years of business lawsuit
experience, most with large Chicago law firms. I wrote
a 600-page book on conducting commercial litigation in a
crisis, Handling The Business Emergency: Temporary
Restraining Orders and Preliminary Injunctions (ABA 2009), and
keep our clients current with a blog entitled Emergency Business
Litigation which can be found at www.emergencybusinesslitigation.com. And,
our youngest partner was recently named a Rising Star
by Super Lawyers Magazine.
Clients. Among our clients are businesses, NBA
stars, other lawyers, high-tech and low-tech entrepreneurs,
doctors, sales professionals, real estate developers, construction
(painting, plumbing, electrical, general contractors) companies,
unions, associations, and individuals.
Industries. Industries in which we have
experience include banking, construction, trucking, legal,
accounting, hospitality, manufacturing, medical, insurance, retail
stores, real estate, and sales.
The Power of Enthusiasm
We approach the challenges of business lawsuits with
enthusiasm. As one client wrote us: "Thanks much for getting on
this with enthusiasm. It is SO . . . RARE IN ATTORNEYS . . .
Experience and enthusiasm make an unbeatable combination.
"We Love You Guys"
Our clients are spreading the word. Some typical
Growth Proves Our Value
When I started the firm, we had eight clients and one
lawyer. Now we have eight (soon to be 10) lawyers, have
served more than 350 clients, and we appear in business
lawsuits all over the country. Grateful for the
trust of our clients, we will continue to earn it.
