Firm Overview

With offices in the heart of the Loop and the North Shore, our Chicago bankruptcy law firm takes pride in providing sophisticated and strategic representation with a high level of client service in the areas of bankruptcy and commercial litigation.

Excellent Customer Service

At FactorLaw, we understand that our clients are the lifeblood of our firm. Our clients rely upon our expertise, but we know that we cannot successfully apply it without a full understanding of their needs. We listen to our clients, help them identify and assess their goals, and then dedicate ourselves to helping them achieve them.

The overwhelming majority of our clients are referred to us from other attorneys or business owners who trust our work and are comfortable referring their clients, friends or family members to us for their bankruptcy and commercial litigation matters. We believe this stands as a testament to the quality of our representation. We pride ourselves on responsiveness; your phone calls and emails will be answered promptly.

"At FactorLaw, we understand that our clients are the lifeblood of our firm"


The attorneys at FactorLaw, quite simply, enjoy practicing law. We relish the opportunity to think outside the box, coming up with creative and effective solutions to our clients’ problems. In every case, we bring to bear the full force of our collective knowledge and experience to achieve optimal results for you. We are constantly seeking out more knowledge and new approaches, and are unafraid to approach difficult or unusual issues with creative legal arguments and solutions.


We have participated in some of the largest bankruptcy cases filed in the United States, on behalf of large and sophisticated clients with hundreds of millions of dollars at stake. Several of our attorneys also have clerked for United States Bankruptcy Judges. Prior to founding FactorLaw, William Factor was an equity partner at a large national firm headquartered in Chicago, specializing in bankruptcy and commercial litigation.


At FactorLaw, we understand that legal fees are an important variable in a client’s decision-making about which law firm to hire. We realize that in most commercial disputes, it really is about “the money,” and thus a successful outcome is determined, in part, by how much a client paid in legal fees to achieve it. Our hourly rates are very competitive, and we pride ourselves on working efficiently. This allows us to work with clients to develop a fee structure that works for everyone. Our bankruptcy law firm also is confident enough in our abilities to accept pure or blended contingency fee arrangements: if we don’t recover for our client, we don’t get paid.
