Our Naperville business attorneys are focused on finding the best solution for you and your company. With our wealth of experience, we know how to represent you aggressively in litigation if that will get the best results, or we can negotiate or mediate if the situation warrants it. We know how to defend you and your company against legal attacks and how to go on the offensive if anyone has harmed your company or reneged on a deal. Ultimately, our goal is to solve your business problem efficiently, without damaging your company or your reputation.

Our experienced lawyers can handle all of your business concerns, including:

  • Business litigation: Sometimes, unfortunately, the only option in a business dispute is to litigate. Our experienced commercial litigation attorneys know how and when to make that decision, and how to argue your case in court and win.
  • High Stakes Litigation: When your business is on the line, you need a lawyer who does not back down in a fight. Our litigation attorneys are prepared to fight for your rights aggressively through trial, especially when your company is at stake.
  • Breach of Contract: Business is built on contracts between parties. Our experience in drafting contracts helps us litigate on your behalf when another party breaches your contract.
  • Partnership Disputes: When partners have a disagreement, our attorneys analyze the situation and advise our clients on how to resolve the problem and fix the partnership if possible or how to dissolve the partnership if necessary.
  • Real Estate: We pride ourselves on our ability to put together commercial real estate deals for our clients. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or a developer planning a large retail complex, our experience is essential to getting your deal closed.
  • Banking and Finance: We have a team of attorneys with a wealth of experience in banking and finance law. We help numerous banks and financial institutions with all of their legal needs.
  • Business Transactions: Our experienced lawyers can help you with important business transactions like contracts. Good contracts are essential to protecting your business, and our transaction lawyers are well versed in writing contracts that ensure our clients’ rights are protected.
  • Intellectual Property: Individuals and companies need help protecting their inventions. If another company has infringed on your patent, you need our experienced patent attorneys to fight for your share of any profits made off of your stolen idea.
  • Mergers and Acquisitions: Selling your company or merging two companies together can be extremely complex. Our business law attorneys can help you navigate all the legal aspects involved in closing your transaction successfully.
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty: Partners owe each other and their company a duty to act in their best interest. If a partner violates that duty, and the company suffers harm as a result, our attorneys will vigorously advocate to recover damages and get injunctive relief when appropriate.

Our experienced business attorneys help businesses with these and more legal issues. We also act as general counsel to several businesses and represent national companies in all their legal matters.

Running a business is extremely time–consuming and complex.

Client Reviews
Shawn Collins is a very talented lawyer, as are all the attorneys on his team. I've known and worked with Shawn for more that 30 years. Not only is he a top notch technical litigator but his communication skills are second to none. If anyone I know is ever in need of an attorney, Shawn is my very first recommendation. He gives very solid advice that goes beyond the law. He is someone you can trust to tell you the truth so you are not lead astray in the complex legal world. You really can't find a better advocate. E.M.
We were incredibly satisfied with our experience with The Collins Law Firm. We worked closely with Ed Manzke and found that he had a personal touch and truly got to know us in addition to being knowledgeable and effective in his field. The caring and individual attitude helped us tremendously throughout the entire process and we always felt like our case was in safe hands. We would highly recommend The Collins Law Firm for both its stellar work and dedicated employees. M.A.
My father recommended The Collins Law Firm to me after watching Shawn Collins and Ed Manzke at trial representing Lisle residents against Lockformer. For years, he told us courtroom tales about Shawn and Ed, citing their incredible skill as trial lawyers and how they put the huge Lockformer legal team to shame. So when my son was the victim of a wrongful death, they were my first and only choice. I can't say enough to truly express how grateful I am to The Collin's Law Firm for all that they did for me and my family. This amazing team advocated for me in my darkest moments, surpassing my expectations in every way. I will be forever grateful to Shawn and Ed. K.D.
I have worked with Rob, Shawn and The Collins Law Firm team in connection with both complex business transactions and litigation over the past several years. Shawn is far and away the best business litigation attorney I have worked with. Rob has been our lead attorney on M&A and corporate restructures, and he has delivered each time, and on time. I would highly recommend Rob to get the deal done! W.D.
Rob has been our out-side General Counsel for ten years. As a business with a global presence, it is important that we have the very best legal representation. Rob and the team have guided us through litigation battles, negotiating and drafting our important business contracts, and advising us in our business strategies. He has a great team of lawyers working with him. M.F.
