“You’re not in the lawsuit industry and your focus should be directed toward running your business.” William P. Foley, Partner
Hiring a law firm whose attorneys understand the inner workings of a small business can give you an advantage whether you are in need of general legal services or are involved in commercial litigation. You are in business to make a profit – not to support a law firm through unnecessary litigation. We work to take the burden of legal conflict off of your business and we do so as efficiently as possible.
We know that legal issues use up time and resources that you would rather invest in the success of your business. The law is increasingly complex and can easily become an expensive and time-consuming distraction for the operator of a small business. We understand this and focus on achieving the best and most practical legal and business result for our clients. At Roth Law Group, we believe in forming alliances with our clients that continue beyond the resolution of their litigation issues. To achieve this objective, we treat our clients with respect and they are billed fairly for our services.
Roth Law Group never looks at litigation as being the first option if there are more efficient and cost effective alternatives. Again, the goal is not to litigate without purposes…you need to have a plan on how to resolve disputes before you get mired down in costly litigation. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) is sometimes the best route for resolving a business dispute. There are commercial arbitrators available, however, both the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois and the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois regularly allow pre-trial settlement conferences once a case has been filed. A private arbitrator can be more expensive in the short-term, however, the process is much faster than formal litigation and therefore, far less expensive in the long run. After an action has been filed, most judges will consider holding a pre-trial settlement conference and this can be an excellent way for the parties to get a feel for how the judge feels about a case relatively early in the litigation. This can serve as a wakeup call for both parties and we have had great success with pre-trial settlement conferences in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois as well as the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
Roth Law Group serves the legal needs of small businesses in a variety of matters including general legal counsel, commercial litigation, contract disputes, civil litigation, small business litigation, and other legal matters.
Our Chicago office is located just steps from the Richard J. Daley Center Courthouse for the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois. As an established downtown firm in Chicago’s Loop, we are intimately familiar with the nuances of practicing in the Circuit Court of Cook County and the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. We know local procedures and we have had great success representing both local and out-of-state businesses in need of local legal representation.
