Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg LLP

Phone: (312) 269-8000

Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg LLP is a Chicago-based law firm whose lawyers share a culture of teamwork and devotion to personalized client service to advance clients’ business interests throughout the U.S. and beyond. Our lawyers provide legal business solutions to public and private entities of all types in connection with domestic and global business transactions and litigation. Our client base reflects a number of Fortune 100 companies, financial institutions, nonprofits and high net-worth individuals.

Although the firm has one office in Chicago, it represents clients throughout the world. A steadfast devotion to our single-office concept ensures that our clients will never get lost in a shuffle of thousands of lawyers or multiple worldwide offices. With nearly 175 attorneys, the firm is suited to handle nearly any legal matter, yet small enough so clients personally know the lawyers accountable to their matters.

Our greatest asset is our people. Lawyers and staff at every level aspire to cultivate long-lasting relationships among one another and with each client. This mindset helps to advance our shared mission to be the best providers of legal services. To every matter, we bring a client-focused approach. First, we listen to our clients and learn about their challenges. We then deploy our collective legal aptitude, experience and industry knowledge to provide sound and cost-effective legal counsel.
