Chicago Commercial Litigation Firm Overview

Experience that delivers when you need it most

We do not limit our representation to a particular type of client. Rather, we focus on providing the best possible litigation services at trial, on appeal and in post-judgment litigation. With more than 50 years of combined experience handling civil and commercial cases, our attorneys have the knowledge and skill to represent clients on either side of the courtroom – including minority and majority equity owners in small business, banks, lending institutions, debtors, creditors and attorneys who’ve been unable to collect a judgment. Once you retain our firm, your case gets our full and undivided attention, and we use every resource at our disposal to ensure your success. Our Chicago attorneys handle all phases of litigation for clients, including discovery, depositions, trial and appeals.

Having distinguished themselves separately as Chicago business attorneys, Andy Schwartz and Tom Kanyock joined to form Schwartz & Kanyock, LLC as an affordable alternative to the traditional big-city law firm. By limiting overhead, we’ve removed many of the restraints that weigh down larger Chicago commercial firms. We litigate fewer cases, so we can deliver a greater degree of personal attention to the cases we accept, allowing us to represent a wider variety of clients without encountering conflicts of interest.

Specific knowledge and experience for parties facing financial peril

We have extensive experience in cases involving commercial disputes: fraudulent transfers, business oppression, and confessions of judgment. Andy and Tom find these cases — representing victims who thought they’d run out of viable options — particularly gratifying. Both attorneys are extremely well versed in these areas of law and have written extensively for the Illinois Bar Journal and the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education.  Tom’s works have been published in the American Bar Association’s Business Law Section.  He also regularly speaks before bar associations, including as keynote speaker at an American Bar Association Annual Conference, and before the Chicago Bar Association, particularly its Business Divorce Committee.  Andy has served as co-counsel in fraudulent transfer cases throughout the United States, and both attorneys act as local counsel for firms located outside Illinois. Tom is an experienced trial consultant for other attorneys.

This blend of knowledge and experience has earned us a reputation for excellence among clients and peers. By joining forces to create Schwartz & Kanyock, LLC, we’ve been able to deliver top-quality legal services and successful results.
