The Bernstein Difference

At Bernstein, we listen to our clients – who they are and what they truly want to achieve. You will never be handed off to a junior associate because we value every client who crosses our threshold. Building personal relationships distinguishes us from the competition. Our motto is “Not because we have to, but because we want to.”

As premier experts in business litigation and commercial law, we continually build our firm’s think tank of intellectual assets. In an industry of large law firm generalists, Bernstein cultivates unique talent and drive to rise above passionless, and often mediocre, lawyering.

Our success speaks for itself – from multi-million dollar judgments to defending large corporations in arbitrations involving hundreds of millions of dollars. We find uncommon solutions to legal problems through critical thinking and intense preparation. We come to the office every morning believing, “Where there is a will, there is a way.”

Our specialties in real estate-related litigation, debtor-creditor/bankruptcy, trade secrets, partnership disputes, energy, and appellate rights have earned us a reputation for excellence, attracting major oil and energy companies, many of Chicago’s premier real estate developers, significant charitable foundations, overseas biotechs, and international banking interests.

Bernstein Law Firm contributes pro bono legal services, particularly in litigation. It has undertaken complex matters for these clients, and has been appointed guardian ad litum for abused children through Chicago Volunteer Legal Services.
Babe Ruth once said, “Baseball is, and always will be to me, the best game in the world.” At Bernstein, we feel the same way about the practice of law. A desire for justice, a ferociously competitive spirit, and passion for the law itself are what set Bernstein lawyers apart–and that’s just the way we like it.
