Our Approach - listening to our clients, understanding their goals, and presenting the best options to meet those goals.

Litigation

Lillig & Thorsness is known for helping its clients manage their businesses’ legal issues and planning ahead to avoid problems and disputes. We know, however, that even with the most careful planning,  most businesses find themselves involved in litigation at some point. We vigorously pursue or defend our clients’ interests so that their businesses can continue to grow and flourish without the disruption litigation can bring.

Our firm represents both local and national clients in a broad range of litigation. We appear before state and federal trial and appellate courts and the Supreme Court, as well as governmental boards and agencies. Lillig & Thorsness’ litigation experts have extensive experience both prosecuting and defending disputes including:

  • Unfair competition
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Tortious interference with business relationships
  • Fraud
  • RICO
  • Products liability
  • Catastrophic injury
  • Non-competition and confidentiality agreements
  • Employment practices involving Title VII, ADA, FMLA and ADEA issues
  • Trade name and service mark infringement
  • Franchise litigation
  • Landlord/tenant disputes
  • Zoning, land use, and construction
  • Estate disputes
  • Real estate, and title claim disputes
  • Foreclosures 

Our attorneys  regularly appear in all divisions of the Cook, DuPage, Kane, Will and Lake County, Illinois, Circuit Courts, as well as the United States District Courts for the Northern Districts of Illinois and Indiana. We have also been admitted on certain specific matters to practice in Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. on behalf of our clients. 

Lillig & Thorsness’ litigation attorneys are experienced both on the trial court level and in courts of appeal. They also regularly  represent clients in alternative dispute resolution forums, including arbitration and mediation. 

Litigation can be stressful and expensive, especially if not managed properly. We work with our clients, explaining what to expect as their case unfolds, and exploring their options. We strive to develop the most cost-effective approach to handle each case successfully and, where appropriate, to negotiate mutually acceptable settlements.

Don’t let concerns about litigation divert your attention from your business. Contact Lillig & Thorsness today to discuss how we can help you.
