Our Approach & Philosophy

For over 50 years, the Beermann Business Law Group has served as advisers and advocates for clients in many industries. We are dedicated to assisting individuals and businesses in finding solutions and providing advice and guidance to ensure that their businesses excel. Our attorneys are exceptionally experienced and skilled and strive to achieve our clients’ goals.

At Beermann, we seek and value long-term client relationships.

We view our clients’ interests as our own, whether they are sophisticated corporations, entrepreneurs, or internet start-ups.

If it is a dispute that needs to be resolved, we use both practical thinking and creativity to resolve it with the least time, expense and stress to the client. If its business advice and planning that you need, or defending a lawsuit brought against you or your business, we can provide counsel based on decades of experience.

We serve many roles for our clients. We are trusted advisors, fierce and aggressive advocates and skilled negotiators. Not every situation calls for the same approach. We are flexible and have a deep understanding of our clients’ business and goals that enables us to use the best approach to serving your needs.

Founded in 1958, the Beermann firm has a rich history of achieving successes for our business clients. As a result, we have an impeccable reputation in the legal community. Our clients’ successes are our successes. We are proud of their achievements and consider their trust and confidence in us to be the highest of all accolades.

In our practice we make it a priority to:

WE MEET AND EXCEED YOUR EXPECTATIONS
When you come to us, we listen. Our lawyers are experienced in many industries and we take the time to fully understand your business and its objectives. The approach is a holistic one and our advice and advocacy are tailored precisely to what you need.  We come up with a strategy with your input. We set time deadlines and estimate costs. We then implement the plan swiftly and directly using our experienced and aggressive lawyers and our efficient and skilled staff.

COMMUNICATIONS/ACCESSIBILITY
Our profession is all about communication – with clients, judges and other lawyers. We are readily available by phone, email and in-person meetings. We return calls promptly and keep you up to speed on developments in your representation. We explain your options at every step of the way and value your input. There is no excuse for clients to feel that their lawyers are not in touch. We make sure that doesn’t happen.

EFFICIENCY AND COST
We understand that all clients are concerned about legal costs. At Beermann, we are too. Most of our lawyers started our careers at large law firms. At large firms, layers of partners and associates often work on your legal matter, which can drive the cost of services sky high. At Beermann, the attorneys you hire are the same attorneys who provide the services.

ATTORNEY REFERRALS
Some of Beermann’s long-term clients are other attorneys – both local and national – who seek out the Beermann Business Law Group to handle matters they cannot handle due to their geographic location or area of practice.

We are always happy to speak with other lawyers to assist in their clients’ business law needs whether it is to set up a business, initiate or defend a lawsuit, or serve as local counsel for litigation in the Chicago area.

SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY
Giving back to the community is not just a good idea; it is what we do every day.  Our lawyers serve the needs of those less fortunate by volunteering in the community and providing assistance—legal and otherwise.  We are of the collective mindset that those who need legal services the most can afford them the least.  Therefore, we do our best to use our talents to help others.  It makes us better lawyers and better people.
