We meet our clients' needs and exceed their expectations. The attorneys responsible for each case are accessible, responsive and proactive in communicating with the client about case strategy and developments. We think about exit strategy from the outset and provide clients with our best assessment not only of where the matter stands, but also of where it is headed. We are dogged in avoiding conflicts of interest.
We take hard cases to trial and win. We try more business cases – from antitrust to RICO to intellectual property and contract – than firms many times our size. We tried and won the first civil RICO case in Illinois. The Seventh Circuit affirmed the verdict. We won the first case tried under the Illinois Trade Secrets Act. We tried and won a $32 million verdict for our client in the first lawsuit ever tried under the U.S. Antidumping Act. The Eighth Circuit affirmed our victory. We are willing to go the distance when our adversaries are not, which helps us secure favorable results at trial and in settlement.
We are innovative in solving our client's legal problem. A cookie-cutter approach to litigation is not for us. We never simply go through the motions, literally or figuratively. If the settled law does not address our client’s legal problem, we argue for new law that does. Through a combination of originality, determination and hard work, our attorneys have made law across the country – in the Illinois Supreme Court for corporations seeking insurance coverage, in the Alabama Supreme Court for class action defendants, and in the Seventh Circuit for RICO litigants.
