Chicago is the most populous city in the Midwest, with over seven million people in a six-county metropolitan area. Because of its long-established reputation as a center for business and industry, the city has become the global headquarters of scores of well-known Fortune 500 companies. Chicago's diverse economy and multicultural population places it near the top of all U.S. cities in projected job growth over the next several years. These are but a few of the reasons why Chicago was the logical choice for Epstein Becker Green's segue into the Midwest.
Attorneys in our Chicago office offer a wide range of services to their clients in the Midwest region and nationwide, particularly in the areas of Labor and Employment, Employee Benefits, Health Care and Life Sciences, and Litigation. They counsel and represent companies in a broad array of industries, including, but not limited to, banking and finance, health care, insurance, manufacturing, real estate, advertising, art, aviation, beauty, education, electronics, engineering, staffing, third-party logistics, and transportation. Also, a number of Epstein Becker Green's Chicago attorneys have been selected for inclusion in Illinois Super Lawyers (2011).
Due to their knowledge of, and involvement in, the Midwestern region, our Chicago attorneys are able to anticipate legal and business trends of particular importance to regional clients. Our attorneys also regularly hold briefings and publish articles and blog entries to apprise clients of important developments in the law.
With its seasoned litigators and experienced legal staff, the Chicago office is a significant part of Epstein Becker Green's practice.
