Businesses

Considered and candid advice whether in the boardroom or courtroom

For more than 20 years, Slavin & Slavin has had the privilege of serving its business clients in an array of matters including defending and mitigating awards for work-related injuries; litigating civil actions sounding in tort and general liability; navigating the thorny issues of insurance coverage; authoring, tweaking and defending commercial contracts; advising on best practices concerning employment issues and procuring and defending professional licenses for the traditionally regulated occupations as well as the newest area of cannabis and CBD businesses.

 

We understand that our clients retain the heavy burden of making the ultimate decision to undertake business opportunities— undertakings that naturally pose opportunity and risk. Our experience assists the decision-makers in evaluating and managing those risks and our clients rely on our candor and honest assessments whether in the boardroom or in the courtroom. We are zealous advocates and prudent advisors always working in partnership with our clients’ decision-makers.

 

We have our finger on the pulse of legislative and administrative actions posing potential consequences for our clients. Whether it is blockbuster legislation such as the legalization of recreational Cannabis or a more discreet change in the Day and Temporary Labor Services Act, we are watchful and prepared to engage with our clients to take timely advantage of new opportunities and ensure compliance with new regulations.

 

Our lawyers routinely litigate in state and federal courts and advocate daily at the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission. We have a notable presence in these forums ensuring that we are well-informed and well-versed in matters affecting our clients’ interests.
