Business Law

Every business transaction involves potential legal issues and risks. Good business legal counsel will help you manage and limit those risks as much as possible, without tying your hands or interfering with your ability to operate the business. We take pride in providing legal advice that is personalized, practical, and responsive.

If you are calling us, it’s because you need an answer. We add value by taking your call promptly, evaluating your needs and situation, and providing the right answer in a timely manner. We work closely with management teams to be a “go-to” resource for all their business legal matters. We will work to understand the unique aspects of your business and the industry where you operate, so we can provide the best advice possible.

Most of our business clients are closely-held or family businesses, their founders, and their owners and senior management. But our attorneys have significant experience from years of practice at major Chicago law firms, including deals valued over $1 billion and representation of public companies. We bring that experience and breadth of knowledge to each matter we handle.
