About Us

A Passion
For Law

It is our passion, our purpose, and our ethos to ensure your masterpiece is protected, its integrity is preserved, and your work is exclusive to you.


When you take in a piece of artwork, you can see the imagination, creativity, technique and skill that the artist poured into their work.

At Cole Schotz,
Lawyering Is Our Art.

This is not just a tag line for us. We exercise ingenuity and legal artistry every day. We would like to take an opportunity to explain who we are and the values that we embody.

We are:


It takes originality and freedom to evolve and innovate alongside clients, industry trends and the market. Understanding that creativity can be contagious, we give all of our talented attorneys the palette needed to discover artful solutions to our clients’ needs and objectives.


It takes a certain courage to be creative, to continually challenge yourself and to trust in your brilliance. Clients turn to us to execute on their business goals with our distinct confidence and legal dexterity.


It takes conviction, endurance, and a refusal to surrender to anything less than your vision when creating a true masterpiece. At Cole Schotz, we draw upon the goals of our clients as fuel and inspiration to deliver outcomes that exude excellence.


It takes ingenuity and relentlessness to find solutions that in some cases set new precedent. Each representation begins as a fresh canvas with the opportunity to think outside of the box and create original and unique outcomes when needed.
