Firm Details

Neal Gerber Eisenberg is a Chicago-based law firm whose attorneys share a culture of teamwork and devotion to personalized client service to advance our clients’ business interests. Our attorneys provide legal business solutions to public and private entities of all types—including Fortune 100 companies, financial institutions, nonprofits and high net worth individuals—in connection with domestic and global business transactions and litigation. Our full service firm is large enough to handle nearly any legal matter throughout the world, yet small enough that clients personally know the attorneys accountable to their matters.

Our greatest asset is our people. Attorneys and staff at every level aspire to cultivate long-lasting relationships among one another and with each client. This mindset helps to advance our shared mission to be the best providers of legal services. To every matter, we bring a client-focused approach. First, we listen to our clients and learn about their challenges. We then deploy our collective legal aptitude, experience and industry knowledge to provide sound and cost-effective legal counsel.


Shunning the “merger mania” strategy of those law firms that adhere to a “bigger is better no matter what” philosophy, the firm, instead, has chosen a calculated path of growth based on adding the “best of the best” attorneys. The firm is recognized nationally and internationally for its knowledge in many practice areas. In 2014, Chambers USA ranked 10 of our practice groups and 27 individual attorneys.


The firm’s culture of teamwork, focus on client needs and practical solutions, and willingness to adapt quickly to meet marketplace demands are key factors behind our success. In addition to making a positive difference for our clients, our lawyers strive to do the same for their communities. The firm encourages its lawyers to dedicate substantial personal time and effort to pro bono work and community service.
