Experience

Opposition to Temporary Restraining Order for Freight Company

Defended a Canadian freight company against an emergency motion for temporary restraining order (TRO) demanding immediate return of leased trailers. Prepared a response and affidavit under very limited time constraints, and successfully argued in opposition to the motion for TRO. The judge denied the TRO, which would have caused serious harm to our client and its customers if granted.

Successful Licensure for Client in Illinois Medical Marijuana Industry

Assisted our client in preparing detailed applications for licenses to grow and dispense medical marijuana in an intensely competitive process under Illinois’s 2014 Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act. Over 370 applications were filed in Illinois for just 81 licenses. Our client won a license to operate a medical marijuana dispensary in suburban Chicago.
