Barnes & Thornburg has developed a significant presence in the largest city in the Midwest. The Chicago office has grown to more than 100 attorneys, mainly because lawyers in this competitive industry are looking for something different: a collegial, democratic environment where they can better serve their clients within the structure of a large firm and still practice in a mid-sized office.
Attorneys in the firm’s Chicago office serve clients from a full range of legal practices, including intellectual property, labor and employment, life sciences, litigation, healthcare, corporate, real estate, environmental, employee benefits and ERISA, finance, insolvency and restructuring, estate planning, and tax. We work with large Fortune 500 companies and smaller privately owned, closely held businesses. Many of our attorneys are frequent speakers and lecturers for professional and industry organizations, and faculty members of universities and law schools.
The office in the 48-story One North Wacker building (formerly UBS Tower) downtown has attracted senior lawyers from large Chicago firms who have brought new clients and a broader perspective to the practice of law.
Being in the nation’s third-largest city and financial center allows us to combine the sophistication of a metropolitan practice with the personalized service of a Midwestern regional firm. We are dedicated to helping our clients meet their business goals and solve their problems by providing timely services and experienced and creative legal counsel.
