The Bernstein Difference

Who We Are

Bernstein Law Firm is one of Chicago’s leading boutique litigation and commercial law firms specializing in commercial business litigation, including partnership and real estate matters, located in the heart of downtown Chicago, at 350 North Clark Street. A desire for justice, a ferociously competitive spirit, and passion for the law itself are what set Bernstein lawyers apart.

Our distinguished attorneys focus on creating personal relationships and are continually building the firm’s think tank of intellectual assets. In an industry of large law firm generalists, the Bernstein legal team delivers unique talent and drive to rise above passionless, and often mediocre, lawyering. Bernstein Law Firm’s attorneys are among the best in Chicago, being named: Super Lawyers in 2016 and 2017, Leading Lawyers by Leading Lawyers Network from 2015 to 2017, and Rising Star by Illinois Super Lawyers in 2016 and 2017.

What We Do

Bernstein’s reputation has been formed over the years by incorporating prior big firm experience into a smaller and more personal approach on behalf of our clients. Our success speaks for itself – from obtaining multi-millionaire judgments on behalf of our clients and representing Fortune 500 companies like JPMorgan Chase, Pepperidge Farm and Bumble Bee Food, as well as many of Chicago’s leading real estate developers and entrepreneurs, such as Block 37, Friedman Properties and Lettuce Entertain You. At Bernstein Law Firm, we take pride in our efforts and contributions to pro bono legal services. Our firm has undertaken complex matters for these clients, and has been appointed guardian ad litum for abused children through Chicago Volunteer Legal Services.
