Our Experience Is A Big Hammer
Attorney Norman J. Lerum has represented Chicago-area companies in contract disputes for four decades. He is thoroughly knowledgeable concerning applicable laws and whether there are precedent-setting cases that could have bearing in a dispute.
While it is important to emphasize that Mr. Lerum is an accomplished trial attorney who is always prepared to advocate in court for his clients, an equally valuable component of our legal counsel is carefully analyzing the facts of a case and determining when it makes better sense to reach agreement outside of court.
Some contracts require the parties to resolve their dispute through arbitration, a process that requires its own set of skills. We understand the differences between litigation and arbitration, and we have successfully resolved disputes in both arenas.
