Wilson Elser’s Chicago office is a conduit for a range of firm services offered in the area’s pro-business environment. Our Chicago attorneys and their colleagues in 41 other offices throughout the United States take pride in their responsiveness, the quality of their work product and, in particular, their ability to provide highly personalized service through a national practice model.

Building on a strong local presence, the attorneys in Wilson Elser’s Chicago office have expanded their core practice of regularly defending cases throughout the Midwest to a nationwide practice encompassing diverse experience.

Opened in 1988, the Chicago office serves local, national and international clients. Several of our more than 50 Chicago-based attorneys are licensed to practice in surrounding Midwest states such as Wisconsin and Indiana. They have extensive experience in the areas of litigation and insurance coverage, including direct representation of parties in state and federal court at the trial and appellate levels. Equally at home in most venues, we are able to assess risks posed to our clients and offer innovative and practical risk management plans, whether through early resolution or escalation of a case through trial and appeal.

We offer ready access to virtually any legal service, drawing on the collective experience resident among our own attorneys and our colleagues throughout the broader firm. Wilson Elser’s national practice team structure, leveraging the benefits of technology, makes it possible for one point of contact to marshal any or all of the resources our clients require to advance even their most ambitious legal objectives.

Wilson Elser is the preeminent defense litigation firm in the United States. At any given time, our more than 1,000 attorneys are engaged in some 100,000 defense and coverage matters, with many defending clients in various local, state and federal courts. Indeed, over more than four decades, our litigation, coverage and trial lawyers have gained a reputation for taking on and prevailing in the most challenging and technical cases, frequently “parachuting in” to assume unresolved matters from other law firms. Our success also derives from winning on our clients’ terms and rigorously adhering to their guidelines. We are ranked 105 in the Am Law 200 and 57th in the National Law Journal’s NLJ 500.
