For assistance, please contact this firm's main contacts.
Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum & Nagelberg LLP was founded in 1984 by two law professors at Northwestern University School of Law, and two other members of a prominent Chicago law firm with whom they had practiced. Since that time, the Firm has grown to approximately 100 lawyers, primarily through the addition of partners and associates from some of Chicago’s largest law firms, and the recruitment of associates from the top ranks of the nation’s leading law schools.
The Firm is not structured to be all things to all clients. We have chosen to practice only in areas where we can attract and retain the best legal talent and quality client relationships. The areas in which we have chosen to practice, including Bankruptcy & Creditor Rights, Corporate Finance, Corporate and Securities, Compensation and Employment, Financial Services, Franchise and Product Distribution, Intellectual Property, Litigation, Real Estate and Tax & Business Planning, require skills for which our lawyers are well known -- a high level of technical experience and an aggressive, innovative approach to solving significant legal problems. These skills allow our lawyers to create added value for our clients in our areas of specialty.
The Firm’s client base is diverse, ranging from Fortune Global 500 consumer product, industrial, financial services, and telecommunication businesses located in the United States and abroad, to domestic middle market companies, individual entrepreneurs and community banking organizations. While we act as general outside counsel for a large number of our clients, a significant number of our clients engage the Firm in lieu of their regular outside counsel to handle complex, time-sensitive or high-stakes matters that fall within our areas of specialty.
The Firm’s growth has been controlled and carefully planned. We are committed to maintaining the unique mix of legal talent and areas of specialization that has allowed us to provide our clients with a level of depth, expertise and quality that is often found only at larger firms, and a level of personal attention, continuity, responsiveness and efficiency that few large firms can match.
