Freeborn & Peters

Founded in 1983, Freeborn is a leading midsize law firm based in Chicago, with four additional offices in New York City; Richmond, Va.; Springfield, Ill; and Tampa, Fla.

We provide corporate clients and individuals with a wide array of legal services divided into multiple practice groups and industry teams: Litigation, Corporate Law, Real Estate Law, Bankruptcy, Government and Regulatory Law, Insurance and Reinsurance, Private Equity and Venture Capital, Food and Beverage, and Transportation. Many of our clients rely on us for multiple areas of legal counsel and benefit from the efficiencies realized by opting to consolidate legal services to a single, full-service provider. We also pride ourselves on our legacy of combining legal savvy with business and industry knowledge to provide sector-specific legal advice to generate the best outcomes for our clients.

Litigation Powerhouse®
Freeborn has more than 90 litigators in its Litigation Practice Group. Known for its deep bench of experienced trial lawyers who handle all areas of complex disputes and litigation in federal and state courts throughout the United States, our experience covers all forms of contention, from liability involving multiple parties, to industry-specific regulations, and from high-profile accidents, to disruption of key commercial ventures.

We vigorously advocate for our clients in such areas as antitrust, insurance and reinsurance, product liability, breach of contract, intellectual property, restrictive covenants, labor and employment, professional liability, class actions, and securities, among many others. We have a track record of resolving claims through summary judgment and settlement; however, our lawyers are highly skilled at squaring off against opposing counsel should a matter go to trial. In addition, our in-house E-Discovery Lab is recognized as a trailblazing innovation among law firms for its high-quality, low-cost approach to the preservation, review and production of electronically stored information.

Our Core Values
Each of our attorneys embraces Freeborn’s five core values. These values, listed below, reflect a promise to our clients, one that we make with sincerity. We strive to live by these core values as professionals and to incorporate them into our client service.

  • Integrity
  • Caring
  • Effectiveness
  • Teamwork
  • Commitment

Our Approach to Client Service
While there are many firms that offer full-service counsel, one way in which Freeborn separates itself is by our approach to client service. We value your choice in selecting us to represent you in your matter, and our appreciation is reflected throughout our client interactions. By working with Freeborn, you can expect a passionate advocate in your corner, one who will work tirelessly on your behalf. We take a proactive approach to ensure our clients are more informed, prepared and able to achieve greater success – not just now, but also in the future.
