We listen, analyze and strategize solutions for clients

At SATC, we resolve sophisticated business disputes. We work quickly to get to the heart of the issue, then find the resolution that is most favorable to our client.

We are regularly called upon to handle complex, high-end, multi-jurisdictional litigation matters in a range of industries.

Our litigation and appellate trial experience includes creative and practical solutions to the nuanced issues surrounding real estate, insurance, professional liability, bankruptcy, asset protection, reorganizations planning and financing, creditors’ rights, receiverships, business disputes and evictions.

Clients value our ability to listen, analyze and strategize options, as well as our ability to become their eyes and ears, giving them a window into the motivations and trigger points on the other side.

We view litigation as a tool to be used only when it is in the best interests of the client. Because litigation comes with its own language and set of rules, we work closely with clients to understand how to use each step in their favor.

For many clients, resolving an issue early and quickly is the best strategy. We are skilled negotiators known for bringing both sides together to find a solution through informal meetings, settlement conferences, mediation or arbitration.

Should it be in a client’s interest to go to trial, our seasoned trial attorneys bring decades of courtroom victories to bear for clients. We are fierce advocates for our clients and have successfully litigated cases with tens of millions of dollars at stake.

Our ranks include multiple members of the federal trial bar and the Chair of the Commercial Litigation section of the Chicago Bar Association, as well as a member of the First District Advisory Committee, the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance (CLM) and the Defense Research Institute (DRI).
