Our Chicago business litigation lawyers
represent entrepreneurs, professionals, small businesses, inventors, private companies and other individuals as plaintiffs and defendants in a range of business litigation
and commercial litigation
Commercial litigation and business litigation often involve simple business matters, but can also involve complex business matters, oftentimes involving thousands of pages of corporate legal documents and significant amounts of money. Prosecuting or defending such lawsuits requires detailed investigation and preparation.
Our Chicago corporate lawyers understand that corporate litigation is significant time and expense for any size business. We understand that many individuals, business owners and other professionals lack the resources, both financial and operational, to handle diversions from their daily business transactions and dealings. For most Chicago businesses, which generally survive on small profit margins, business litigation costs can often prove financially disastrous. Although business litigation costs can be tax deductible and expensed in most cases, the time cost and lost production of a business is extremely burdensome for the business owner or professional. For that reason, our Chicago commercial litigation attorneys are sensitive to the legal fees necessary to properly prosecute or defend a corporate litigation matter and offer flexible fees and billing options, depending on the specific details involved.
At every stage of the business litigation process, from evaluation of claims, staffing and initial strategy development, to document and information management, through discovery, motion practice, trial preparation, settlement or verdict, our Chicago business litigation lawyers remain cognizant of clients’ needs and zealous in our representation of those clients.
Typical matters have included commercial litigation; business disputes, shareholder and partnership disputes; breach of contract claims, including written contracts, oral contracts, employment contracts and restrictive covenants; business fraud; corporate misconduct; breach of fiduciary duty; legal malpractice; accounting; fraudulent concealment claims; insurance coverage disputes; and employee wrongful termination disputes. These commercial litigation matters frequently require our Chicago business litigation lawyers to seek equitable relief, such as temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions, attachments, and the appointment of receivers, among others.
