About The Firm

“Moving Beyond Transactions; Building Genuine Relationships”

Jackson Corporate Law Offices is a Chicago-based law firm that was formed with a mission to offer an alternative approach to providing innovative businesses with legal counsel. Over the years, the Attorney-Client “relationship” has become less of a relationship and more of a transaction. Consequently, the legal field has become more about generating revenue than facilitating goal achievement. Jackson Corporate Law Offices puts the emphasis back on building relationships and providing competent, effective legal representation by truly getting to know our clients as people, business owners, innovators, and dreamers.

At the outset of every engagement, we ask relevant questions that drive at the heart of your business goals in order to provide solutions that are both legally sound and operationally strategic. The firm’s attorneys fully understands the interplay between effective legal protection and strategic business decisions. Being both businessmen and businesswomen, we are able to see business interactions from both sides of the coin and produce strategic service products that ensure that both sides are taken into account. Each attorney has been engaged in numerous business transactions that have afforded him or her the ability to quickly analyze a business’ current position/future goals and develop a legal strategy that is both effective and complimentary to those goals.

We are a law firm with an innovative mindset and we have been specifically designed to meet the unique needs of the innovative business community. What is an innovator? At Jackson Corporate Law Offices we see an innovator as someone who draws unique out of the ordinary, someone who explores opportunities in unchartered territories, someone who sees ability for expansion beyond the traditional limits of his/her industry, and someone who always remains forward thinking in attempting to change the landscape of mundane business practices…

If this sounds like you, Contact us today and experience legal representation the way it was meant to be.
