About Freeborn & Peters LLP

Founded in 1983 with only six lawyers, Freeborn & Peters has grown to over 200 professionals. Serving a wide-range of industries from food to transportation law, the firm has represented clients such as famed sandwich shop Jimmy John’s, CIVC – a seasoned private equity firm – and Canadian National Railway. Throughout the past 30 years, Freeborn’s main focus has expanded to include litigation, government and regulatory law, corporate, real estate, and bankruptcy and financial restructuring. 

The Chicago-based firm has a reach that extends far beyond the Midwest, having handled cases national and internationally in everything from complex antitrust cases to real estate disputes and reinsurance matters. Because the firm is organized in sub-practice areas, Freeborn’s attorneys are able to cross between industries. The firm’s attorneys pride themselves as “litigators first,” and have proven so throughout the years.
