Public Profile

Our law firm represents franchisees and dealers, and their independent associations, in all industries, in Chicago and across the country, and we have achieved enviable success in this field.  We are honored by every major service that rates lawyer performance:  Chambers USA, Best Lawyers, Best Law Firms, Super Lawyers, Leading Lawyers (Illinois), Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, and Franchise Times Legal Eagles (Hall of Fame member).   We earn these rankings by hard work, an unwavering ethical compass and committment to our clients, and a clear mission and vision.

We try more cases, in court or arbitration, than most other lawyers. This vital distinction enables us to negotiate from positions of strength.

We stand out in being frequently called on to defend other lawyers accused of legal malpractice, and sometimes we have the unpleasant but necessary duty of holding other lawyers accountable for their mistakes or ethical lapses that result in injury to their clients.  In over 30 years of practice I have a clear and unblemished record enabling our Firm to undertake these engagements.  

We also represent select franchisors that are committed to "best practices" and "win win" franchising for the benefit of themselves and their franchisees.

We have deep experience in most every type of case that might arise in a francjhise, dealership or distribution relationship, and are partcularly proud to be trailblazers in protecting civil rights in franchising.

Our firm is growing and thriving.   We earn our clients' loyalty every day.  Thank you for your consideration. I can be reached by phone at (312) 626-1160 or email.
