Chicago Employment Lawyers Defend Company Interests

Employment law for employers in Chicago

In your position as the owner or manager of a competitive business, you need to drive productivity and translate that into profits. Naturally, a talented and motivated workforce is a crucial component for success.

Direct, personal service from experienced partner attorneys

Our Chicago employment lawyers offer clients two distinct advantages. The first is hands-on case management by one of our knowledgeable partners. Your case will never be delegated to a minor associate.  Instead, you have direct access to our partners, who have more than 45 years of combined legal experience. Secondly, the partner who manages your case is also a skilled plaintiff lawyer who can anticipate how the other side will build its case against you. Our knowledge of employee-side strategies ensures a tactical advantage that we use to your benefit.

Cost-effective and time saving alternatives to litigation

Litigation can be costly and often drags on far too long. To resolve your employment issues and get your company back to business, there are methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) which can fast-track your solution. Our Chicago employment law firm has worked extensively in mediation and arbitration of disputes between workers and employees. As your employment mediation attorneys, we counsel you through the process of negotiating a mutually beneficial solution. As your arbitration counsel, we advocate for your position in binding and non-binding processes decided by a neutral party. Our extensive litigation experience in the courtroom allows us to determine whether a settlement is reasonable and acceptable, and gives us the confidence to argue your case before the jury when your opponent is unwilling to offer an acceptable settlement.
