Carl (Carlo) E. Poli

Carl (Carlo) E. Poli: Attorney with Stone, McGuire & Siegel, P.C.

Biography

Carl has been in private practice for several years where he acquired a tremendous amount of experience in managing a wide array of business litigation matters, ranging from mundane contract litigation to highly complex and sophisticated financial markets class actions. His business litigation experience extends to hundreds of cases in many different venues including the United States Supreme Court; the Supreme Courts of California, Illinois and Utah; several different federal and state trial and appellate level courts; many different administrative agencies; and even to two Canadian courts. In a class action financial markets case where Carl represented executives of a Fortune 500 company, his brief opposing class certification convinced the court to deny the certification. This reduced the clients’ exposure to liability from approximately $400 million to only $30,000.

Carl also has extensive experience in non-litigation matters, including ascertaining and resolving contractual, employment, litigation, compliance, policy and regulatory issues and advising clients in the decision-making process and in developing and implementing legal strategies to support objectives, including the minimization of future litigation risks. Over the years, Carl has negotiated and drafted innumerable contracts, ranging from simple leases to very complex commercial agreements, as well as termination agreements for executives of Fortune 500 companies.

Because of the varied nature of his practice and his foreign language abilities, Carl has experience in collaborating with, and in retaining, supervising and monitoring outside counsel regarding both litigation and non-litigation matters in many different venues in the United States, as well as in Italy, Austria, Canada, Germany, Switzerland and Spain.

After vetting Carl for his professional ethics, integrity and ability, the Illinois Supreme Court appointed Carl to act as a Panel Chair for the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission’s Hearing Board. In that capacity, Carl has presided in dozens of cases brought against attorneys accused of ethical and professional misconduct. He does this work on a volunteer basis.
