RD understands many business transactions and disputes create unique challenges and risks for our clients. We consider our clients’ values, risk profiles, legal and business objectives, and short and long-term priorities in order to reach creative and effective solutions to satisfy their needs. This requires that our lawyers work together across practice areas as integrated, multidisciplinary teams to provide the insights and capabilities necessary to generate exceptional results.

We have 60 attorneys who are licensed to practice in Illinois and several other Midwest states, as well as in numerous United States District Courts and Courts of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.
