Fox, Swibel, Levin & Carroll, LLP is a boutique business law firm that provides sophisticated legal services in a wide range of practice areas, including corporate and securities, corporate finance, real estate, bankruptcy, restructuring and creditors' rights, and business litigation. Founded in 2000, the firm is rapidly becoming known as the firm to retain for cases and transactions that require the highest quality work but do not require the large numbers of lawyers or unusual sub-specialties that big firms provide.
Young and aggressive, the firm has a straightforward formula: recruit top lawyers who were educated at the nation's best law schools and who formerly were partners and associates at nationally known, highly respected large firms, and focus on what the firm does best: providing "big firm" quality work in a streamlined boutique firm setting.
By communicating that approach to general counsel, CEOs and other company officers, and by continually achieving cost-effective and successful results, the firm is causing companies to think carefully about which matters do and which do not require big firm involvement.
The firm handles sophisticated transactions and litigation for clients that range from Fortune 500 companies to successful entrepreneurs. They include national institutions such as JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Walgreens, U.S. Bank, Ridge Property Trust, and Omni Hotels; some of the most successful and dynamic local Chicago businesses such as Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises and AthletiCo Physical Therapy Centers; and a host of other large, mid-size and small manufacturing, banking, retail, hotel, real estate, private equity, and hedge fund clients.
The firm also is the only small U.S. firm selected for membership in the Interlex Group, a highly selective global alliance of law firms in 35 countries. Through its Interlex relationships, the firm has developed an additional niche as counsel to clients from all over the world doing business in the United States.
