Chicago Commercial Litigation Attorneys

Stoltmann Law Offices Commercial Litigation Group is a Chicago-based law firm representing individuals and corporations in all types of business and commercial litigation. We are currently litigating breach of contract, business torts, trademark and copyright, and real estate disputes for our clients nationwide. Our attorneys have litigated approximately one thousand fraud cases and related court cases.

Value-Based Fee Arrangements

Stoltmann Law Offices Commercial Litigation Group encourages prospective clients to consider an alternative fee arrangement for all litigation matters. Unlike most firms whose fee arrangements are based solely on hours, Stoltmann Law Office’s alternative fee arrangement can take the form of a fixed fee, a fixed monthly retainer, a partial contingency fee, or pure contingency in which no attorney fees are paid unless we recover money. We base OUR fees on results, not time spent.

Personal Litigation Advice

At Stoltmann Law Offices Commercial Litigation Group we offer hands-on customized, aggressive legal advice. This personal approach means that our clients will always have an attorney available to them, prosecuting their claim. With our law firm, you will be in the capable hands of an attorney who understands the nuances of your individual case.

Common Types of Litigation

Our firm is dedicated to providing outstanding legal services to clients, finding efficient and creative solutions to problems, and fighting for our clients’ rights before courts, juries, and arbitration panels. The following are just some the types of litigation claims our attorneys handle.

Breach of Contract: We represent individuals and businesses in contract disputes in all areas of business and for businesses of all sizes. Typically a breach of contract occurs when a party fails to perform under the terms of the contract.

Business Tort Litigation: These are claims that are business disputes that are not contract-based. Business torts provide the common law rules on liability that arise out of business transactions such as interference with economic or business relationships.

Intellectual Property: We can help you register, protect, license, and enforce your business’s intellectual property rights. Specifically, we handle a high volume of trademark, copyright and domain name registrations, appeals, and licensing negotiations.

Commercial Collections: Our firm provides innovative, aggressive commercial debt collection services to clients throughout Illinois. Our clients include banks and financial institutions, wholesalers, health care providers, food and beverage distributors, and businesses in a broad range of industries.

Legal Malpractice: An attorney-client relationship is fiduciary in nature and requires a high degree of trust and fidelity. Legal malpractice may occur when an attorney’s negligent action, inaction (failing to file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations period), or advice causes the client damages.

Commercial Real Estate: We provide representation to both individuals and businesses for a wide variety of real estate and commercial matters, including those involving contract negotiation, preparation, financing advice and consulting.

Shareholder and Partner Disputes: Our attorneys have extensive experience in helping individuals set up corporations, partnerships, LLCs, closely held companies, joint ventures and business agreements.

Defamation Libel and Slander: Our firm represents individuals involved in defamation and slander which often occurs when a professional has accepted a position at a new place of employment. Before that person moves on, the former employer may attempt to tarnish that person’s reputation with their current employer.

Trusts and Estates Law: We can set up any type of trust to meet your estate planning goals. We can assist in creating revocable or irrevocable trusts to living trusts. Our attorneys will review your documentation to determine what type of trust is your best option.

Employment Law: Our firm helps employees navigate complex legal matters by providing them with expert legal advice on all issues related to the workplace. Our employee clients are diverse and so are their legal issues. We tailor our approach to meet our clients’ needs.

Client Reviews
Working with Joe was an absolute pleasure considering the unfortunate situation I was dealing with! He’s very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. He kept me informed in all aspects of my case in a timely manner. Whenever I contacted him with a question he responded quickly. His expertise came through for me! I would highly recommend him!

I hired Joe and his firm Stoltmann Law office to represent me in a case where my investment guy had lost a substantial amount of money in my account. He invested in some very speculative energy stocks which should not have been in my portfolio due to my request for a very conservative investment portfolio. I was very impressed and satisfied with the representation and negotiations on my behalf by Joe and Stoltmann Law offices and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who would be in need of a very fine firm.

Never having a need to file suit against anyone, let alone a major multi-national brokerage firm, I was at a loss to find a legal firm to assist me. After much searching, I found Stoltmann Law Offices, PC. They were very diligent and professional in the handling of my case and I am glad that I retained their services. I would definitely refer them to anyone seeking similar help. Donald F.
