Partnership opportunity, established Chicago law firm

Looking for a strong platform to support your existing practice while also creating greater cost-effectiveness for your clients?  

My law firm client may view the delivery of client services the same way you do. Recognizing that most clients can’t afford institutional rates and that clients naturally want the same kind of representation and results that a BigLaw attorney may provide, this firm provides its clients with the best of both worlds.

This firm provides exceptional legal services for entities ranging from public corporations to entrepreneurial individuals, with an emphasis on representing small to mid-sized businesses. Many lawyers who practice here came here from BigLaw and now practice – no, thrive – on expanding client relationships on their own terms.  

Currently, the firm provides the following legal services: corporate law, litigation, employee benefits, estate planning and probate, health and fitness club representation, independent manufacturers’ representatives, taxation, mergers, acquisitions and business sales, real estate and finance, real estate tax reduction, trade associations, and labor and employment.

If your practice may complement the ones described here, please pick up the phone or send me an email to find out more.  

This firm boasts a great work environment, security, flexibility, independence, a strong support staff, great benefits and a place to call home for the long haul. Salary will correspond with your potential book of business, which can range in the area of $400K-500K.
