About Us

Our History: How We Became the Firm Chicago Relies on to Resolve Complex Cases

For over 35 years, our definition of success has always involved being the Chicago business litigation lawyers that clients and other attorneys turn to when they need to resolve a complex legal issue at the negotiating table or in the courtroom.

Fulfilling Our Mission: Establishing a Track Record of Success

Over the years, we've achieved winning verdicts or settlements by mastering the facts and law and then obtaining damaging admissions through cross-examination of the opposing witnesses. With each case, we've gained valuable knowledge and insights.

We serve a range of clients, including individuals as well as businesses seeking assistance in navigating complicated legal disputes.

The lawyers at Lubin Austermuehle have experience handling not only high-stakes business litigation but also cases for individuals including defamation cases, libel lawsuits, non-compete agreement, and trade secret theft cases, consumer fraud, dealer and franchise termination, civil rights cases and more.

With a focus on complex commercial litigation and class actions, our strong work ethic and commitment to improvement have resulted in a track record of success. Our attorneys have served as lead or co-lead counsel in hundreds of contested or settlement class actions not only in Illinois but nationwide. We've also successfully defended finance companies, national banks, mobile home chains, large apartment complexes, marketing firms, and corporations in "bet-the-company" class action lawsuits with hundreds of millions of dollars in claimed damages.

We've helped owners in closely held business disputes recover millions of dollars in business separation, fraud and breach of fiduciary duty cases.

Additionally, our Chicago trial lawyers have assisted in establishing or strengthing important consumer and franchise protection statutes. We've helped consumers across the nation achieve justice guiding them through complicated individual or class-action cases.

Awards and Recognition

Lubin Austermuehle's victories continue to attract new clients and have earned us numerous accolades: For example, Crain's Chicago Business ranked the settlement Peter Lubin reached as co-lead counsel in the Erickson v. SBC class action case as the third highest settlement in Illinois that year. Our predecessor firm received the first DuPage County "Law Firm of Year" award for our devotion to the ideals of the legal profession.

We always keep our promise to deliver important victories and effect significant change for our clients as well as our community. Lubin Austermuehle consistently delivers the highest quality services with a level of personal consideration that many larger law practices lack.

Client Reviews
I was referred to Peter Lubin from someone in the car business to handle a law suit. From the moment I made the appointment Peter and his staff were outstanding. This wasn't an easy case, most lawyers had turned me down. However, Peter took the time to meet with me and review everything. He took on the case, and constantly communicated with me about updates and case information. We beat this non-compete agreement case in record time. I would use him again and recommend him to my closest family and friends. 5 stars is not enough to thank him for his service. Sebastian R.
I worked on two occasions with Peter Lubin and his staff. They took their time with me and discussed each and every item in detail. The group makes you feel like you are part of the family and not just another hourly charge. I recommend Peter to anyone who asks me for a referral. If you are looking for a top notch attorney at a reasonable rate, look no further than Lubin Austermuehle. Kurt A.
Excellent law firm. My case was a complicated arbitration dispute from another state. Was handled with utmost professionalism and decency. Mr. Peter Lubin was able to successfully resolve the case on my behalf and got me a very favorable settlement. Would recommend to anyone looking for a serious law firm. Great staff and great lawyers!

I have known Peter Lubin for over 30 years. He has represented me on occasion with sound legal advice. He is a shrewd and tough negotiator leading to positive outcomes and averting prolonged legal hassles in court. He comes from a family with a legal pedigree and deep roots in Chicago's top legal community. You want him on your case. You need him on your opponents case. He won't stop fighting until he wins.

Peter was really nice and helpful when I came to him with an initial question about a non-compete. Would definitely reach out again, recommended to everyone. Johannes B.
