In addition, Alex’s personal background in banking and finance provides him with an ability to grasp complex transactions and quickly provide reliable and sound advice. With such a wide range of experience in finance, commercial real estate, and technology, Alex brings a depth of knowledge outside of the legal industry to each and every client he consults.
Outside of being an attorney, Alex is also an integral part of his community. He is a key member of the Chicago-Kent School of Law’s incubator program, where his role includes advising start-up law firms on how to identify markets, develop a company brand, and seize business opportunities. Additionally, he is an adjunct professor of Real Estate at Kendall College’s School of Hospitality Management, and is regularly invited to speak at a variety of seminars in the Chicago area, including continuing legal education courses for other attorneys.
What makes Alex an asset to any business is the hands-on approach he takes with each of his clients. Rather than trying to maximize fees, he centers his practice on fostering company growth through creating unique opportunities for brand expansion. Alex provides his clients with a much broader role than simply serving as a legal advisor; he is a partner in their success. As such, he has been elected into the Illinois Super Lawyers Rising Stars Selection for 2015, 2016 and 2017.
