Since 2008, Greensfelder’s multidisciplinary team of attorneys in Chicago has helped clients doing business in Illinois and around the world navigate the ever-changing legal and business issues that impact their operations.
We deliver business-case-driven legal strategy and client experience that serve privately held corporations and Fortune 500 companies alike. Our attorneys have longstanding reputations for helping clients “see around corners” by anticipating needs and quickly responding to client requests with matters that affect businesses of all types— including litigation, intellectual property protection, labor and employment concerns, real estate and environmental matters, corporate and franchising issues, and compliance.
Clients and referring law firms say our attorneys have the ability to focus quickly on the issues at hand and recommend practical and efficient solutions, and they appreciate our ability to understand their business priorities and strategic goals and be proactive in controlling outcomes. Our aim is to respond, listen and act, and we strive to provide excellence in client experience through our top-notch responsiveness, knowledge and communication.
A few of areas of particular strength include:
Closely Held Businesses and Private Clients
We are partners with closely held businesses and private clients, helping them to grow and strengthen their finances, families and futures. We have the capability to navigate sophisticated matters with a sensible and flexible approach, and we approach our role with empathy and compassion for each unique situation. Our team frequently operates tax counsel, family counsel, and outside general counsel for closely held businesses.
Health Care Law
We represent for-profit and nonprofit health care providers and affiliated businesses throughout the full spectrum of health care delivery, often acting as general or specialty counsel for providers. We draw on resources from across our full-service firm to provide transactional and litigation counsel. In Chicago, one of our focuses is helping physicians and dental providers navigate compliance and the changing legal landscape with respect to quickly changing areas such as telehealth and sleep medicine.
Banking and Financial Services
Banks and financial institutions are among our most collaborative alliance partners as we serve executives, wealth advisors, loan officers and trust officers, helping them grow and protect their revenue and serve their customers well. We have strong fluency in the Chicago market and play the role of mutual connector for clients and referral sources.
Manufacturing and Industrial
With decades of client representations with marquee-branded manufacturing and industrial companies, Greensfelder delivers comprehensive strategy in areas including environmental matters, product liability, intellectual property protection and enforcement, transportation and logistics, and employment matters.
Outside General Counsel
In the role of outside general counsel for a business or organization, we can connect clients to the right talent, at the right time, at the right rate structure for any business need. We aim to provide ongoing legal services leveraging our strength across multiple practice areas to match each client’s goals and exceed expectations, with regular reviews to assess progress and plan for the future.
