About this firm


Our focus is to represent clients with large scale corporate matters and substantial issues.

Our clients have complex high revenue matters involving creditors & or corporate holdings.

Schwartz & Kanyock, LLC was founded to provide an affordable alternative to the traditional big-city law firm. Our Chicago law firm is not held down by the same restraints that larger Chicago commercial firms face when handling their cases. We litigate a smaller number of cases to ensure that we can represent a wide variety of clients while reducing the potential for conflicts of interest.

We do not focus on representing a certain kind of client, but instead are dedicated to providing the best possible litigation services at trial. With more than 40 years of combined experience handling civil and commercial cases, Chicago business attorneys Andy Schwartz and Tom Kanyock have the experience and skill to represent clients on both sides of the courtroom - including banks, lending institutions, debtors, creditors and families facing foreclosure. Once you retain our firm, your case gets our full and undivided attention, and we use every resource at our disposal to ensure your success. Our Chciago business attorneys handle all phases of litigation for clients, including discovery, depositions, trial and appeals.

We have extensive experience in particular areas of commercial litigation - fraudulent transfers,confessions of judgment and mortgage foreclosures. Andy and Tom are both extremely well-versed in these areas of law and have written extensively for the Illinois Bar Journal and the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education. Andy has served as co-counsel in fraudulent transfer cases throughout the United States, and both attorneys act as local counsel for firms located outside Illinois. Tom is an experienced trial consultant for other attorneys.

This blend of knowledge and experience has earned us a reputation for excellence among clients and peers. By joining forces to create Schwartz & Kanyock, LLC, we can deliver on that reputation by providing our clients with top-quality legal services and successful results.
