arris | Winick LLP is a boutique commercial litigation firm known for its skillful handling of high-stakes litigation, particularly in the area of construction law. With more than 100 years of combined experience, the firm’s lawyers are able to represent clients throughout the United States, from litigating cases in state and federal courts, to handling arbitration matters and appellate work. In addition, the firm’s transactional practice has represented clients on numerous multimilliondollar construction projects, including a professional sports stadium, a new hospital pavilion, a major addition to one of Chicago’s renowned cultural institutions, multiple buildings

at one of Chicago’s leading universities, and many high-rise residential towers. “We have practiced in the areas of construction law and commercial litigation for such a long period of time that we’ve come to know the construction industry inside and out,” says partner Robert Harris. “And as a consequence of that, we have a significant edge when it comes to handling complex litigation and transactional matters for our clients, who in many cases have been our clients for years.” Indeed, because of its success, Harris | Winick LLP has been ranked Tier 1 nationally for construction litigation by U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” in 2014. And the firm’s deep

industry knowledge has resulted in three of its attorneys being selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America: Jeffrey Winick; Robert Harris; and John-Paul Lujan, who worked as an architect at a major architectural firm before becoming a lawyer. While the firm prides itself on its group of highly skilled trial lawyers, Winick—who in 2014 was also selected by his peers as Best Lawyers’ Lawyer of the Year in Chicago for construction litigation—notes, “Our focus remains on earning the trust and confidence of our clients. And to that end, we aim to provide cost-effective legal services in a manner where our clients can rely upon our judgment, both inside and outside of the courtroom, to achieve their results.”
