Small Business Lawyers

John F. Baker Law is looking for exceptional small and medium business clients in the Chicagoland area. We saw an underserved community of young, educated professionals that were fed up with the status quo, that have been burned before by bad business deals and subpar representation, or that are out on a limb and don’t even know it, and decreed that to be unacceptable. As a small business ourselves, we understand what’s at stake. Let us safeguard your investment, what you built with all your hard work, the product of all those late nights.

Our practice areas include: Business Formation, Business Litigation, Commercial Real Estate, Complex Transactions, Copyright Issues, Contracts, Employment Law, Human Resources Support, and anything else that your small or medium business needs.

We are the most driven, hardest working, and dedicated firm that you will ever find, as well as the most refreshing, honest, and down-to-earth. Let us bring the full weight of our expertise to bear to ensure your business is secure and everything it should be.

“Thorough explanation, put
everything in terms we were able
to understand”

to connect with”

With John, I’m always confident… I know that when he’s with me, everything will be okay

-Ryan G.

Established in 2012, John F. Baker Law has become a staple in the legal community of the western Chicago suburbs, serving clients in DeKalb, DuPage, Kane, and Kendall, and Will counties. We pride ourselves on our diligence, plain-spoken manner, and love of educating clients about the law. Too many law firms are out of touch with younger clients and don’t understand their needs. We feel a kinship with small business owners and genuinely want to help them succeed.
