During the pandemic response, Lakelaw remains fully operational with our lawyers and staff working both at the office and from home. We are consulting with our clients daily, negotiating and executing transactions, and counseling businesses who are formulating a plan for survival in the future. We are also participating in virtual court proceedings to the extent the same are conducted.
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.
