About Us

The work is high stakes. The service is high touch. The momentum is always forward.

About Us

Since 1970, Much has fostered a vibrant, entrepreneurial culture that fuels our full-service platform. Knowledge, teamwork, creativity, and pragmatism are essential ingredients.

Well-connected and well-versed, our attorneys provide straightforward solutions to complex legal and business issues. We help clients see around the corner and seize opportunities – often before they know they exist.

“At Much, we work hard to develop a deep understanding of the unique legal and business challenges our clients face. We forge close relationships with our clients because we do more than focus on their immediate needs – we answer the questions they don’t ask and address issues before they become liabilities.”

We think the way we practice law is unique, but don't just take our word for it. We have been recognized by our clients and peers as one of the nation’s leading law firms. Publications like Chambers USA, Crain’s Chicago Business, The American Lawyer, Chicago Lawyer magazine, and National Law Journal have honored our attorneys as some of the best in the business. And just as important as our high-caliber work is our firm’s culture of respect and collaboration, earning our firm recognition by the Chicago Tribune as one of Chicago’s top workplaces.
