We provide comprehensive representation in complex commercial disputes pending in Federal and State court, including the counties near Chicago. We handle all aspects of civil litigation, including trial and appellate work. Many of our cases concern contract and tort claims. In addition to prosecuting and defending claims for money damages, we frequently handle suits seeking all forms of equitable relief. For instance, we have defended accounting actions that resulted from business dissolution, sought specific performance on behalf of the buyer of real estate, and defended claims in which an injunction and temporary restraining order was sought regarding a restrictive covenant in an employment agreement and, in another case, concerning the sale of a business.

​Litigation can oftentimes be avoided, and we give special attention to helping clients resolve their disputes without resorting to litigation.  Since litigation is an expensive and time-consuming process, we offer a frank analysis of your rights and prospects, as well as a clear idea of the economics associated with litigation to minimize potential expense.  Because of the innumerable factors affecting litigation, a settlement may be the most acceptable and economically viable alternative.  We approach negotiations with the same zeal and attentiveness as we would approach a trial.  However, should you elect to litigate, we will vigorously prosecute or defend your case to maximize your chances of success.

No lawyer can specialize in every area of the law.  Scannell & Associates provides excellent and affordable legal representation in our areas of concentration, but we have also cultivated a talented network of attorneys who excel in other areas of the law that are also ready to serve you.

Our partners specialize in a wide range of legal fields, including catastrophic personal injury, malpractice, workers compensation, products liability, divorce, criminal, bankruptcy and consumer class action litigation.  

If we do not handle a particular type of case, we work with the best lawyers that do.

As your lawyer, we will work with you to find the right attorney for your circumstances from our vast legal contacts cultivated over decades of practicing law. We don’t just refer you to another attorney; we work closely with our legal partners from the beginning to the end to ensure that you receive the excellent and affordable legal representation that you expect from us.

We encourage you to reach out to us for all your legal issues.  

We want to be your go to lawyer!
