Much Shelist, P.C.

Much was established in 1970 as a law firm with a focus on business counseling, transactional law and litigation. Today, we are a firm of approximately 100 attorneys with a culture of personal service and creativity more typical of a smaller firm, yet with the sophistication and resources that clients expect from the largest law firms.

We routinely handle large and complex transactions and litigation for businesses of all sizes. Our clients include financial institutions, private equity groups, public and private companies with a global presence, middle-market businesses, families and high-net-worth individuals. We have substantial experience representing a range of manufacturers, distributors and service companies in various industries, from technology startups to mature businesses with a focus on growth strategies, market penetration and succession plans.

The firm offers business and litigation services in a wide range of areas, including corporate law; mergers and acquisitions; private equity; venture capital and emerging growth companies; commercial finance; taxation and business planning; labor and employment; commercial real estate and construction; business litigation and dispute resolution; insurance coverage and risk management; intellectual property and technology; health care law; creditors' rights, insolvency and business bankruptcy; and wealth transfer and succession planning.

Our attorneys are committed to developing meaningful client relationships. By knowing our clients and their businesses, we believe we can better understand their needs and goals, and help deliver more effective solutions. We emphasize direct, personal communications that enable us to anticipate client needs and respond quickly to new business and legal developments. The result? Our clients tell us that they appreciate our blend of business pragmatism and legal acumen.

At Much, we are practical and sensitive to clients' cost concerns. We offer clients a variety of fee arrangements and regularly structure plans that are tailored to our clients' unique needs.

We have been recognized by our clients and peers as one of the nation's leading law firms. The National Law Journal selected Much as one of only 20 U.S. law firms featured on the "Midsize Hot List" for six years between 2009 and 2016. Many of our attorneys are recognized by Chambers USA, Super Lawyers, Leading Lawyers, Martindale-Hubbell and U.S. News – Best Lawyers. We have also been named by the Chicago Tribune as one of Chicago's top 100 workplaces for six consecutive years from 2012 to 2018.
