Over a couple decades Lakelaw, which began in Chicago, Illinois, built its reputation as a premier boutique law firm representing consumers and small business in bankruptcy, reorganizations, workouts, and foreclosure defense litigation. Meanwhile Bauch & Michaels, LLC built its reputation in providing similar services to small businesses and entrepreneurs, while also being recognized for its work in real estate development, condominium management, and especially commercial litigation.
In late 2018, lawyers from Lakelaw joined Bauch & Michaels and the two groups of lawyers, with more than 100 years of experience among all of them, began working under the Lakelaw name.
Centered in downtown Chicago, we provide federal and state litigation representation in Chicago and the collar counties. We also are well-recognized for our transactional business services and real estate development and management – especially in connection with condominium and homeowner associations.
Our lawyers stay apprised of latest developments. We often litigate the cases and write articles from which other lawyers learn. And we represent the necessity of working towards optimal efficiencies to give our clients economical and efficient representation in their matters.
