Top Chicago Litigators Launch Boutique Law Firm

Robert Palmersheim & Anand Mathew

Seasoned trial and appellate attorneys Robert J. Palmersheim and Anand C. Mathew have announced the formation of Palmersheim & Mathew, a boutique law firm focused on complex business disputes for clients. The firm provides clients the best of both worlds: the breadth and depth of skills and experience they would expect from a large firm, coupled with the unparalleled client service that a boutique firm can deliver.

The new firm represents clients in a range of areas including alternative dispute resolution, antitrust, appellate, professional liability, fiduciary litigation, fraud litigation, breach of contract, business fraud and torts, shareholder disputes, partnership disputes, and more.

“Both Anand and I spent most of our careers at the venerable litigation boutique, Schopf & Weiss LLP, which merged with Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP in 2015,” said partner Robert Palmersheim.  “We are pleased to return to our litigation boutique roots—with an emphasis solely on business litigation and a drive to deliver outstanding results, superior client service, and real value.”

Palmersheim & Mathew bring more than 30 years of combined experience and success handling sophisticated commercial litigation cases nationwide.  They are known for their ability to achieve outstanding results in business disputes through a range of creative, pragmatic litigation and non-litigation strategies.

“Rather than taking the formulaic approach often deployed by some firms, our approach is to find the optimal strategy for resolving each unique business dispute,” partner Anand Mathew said.  “In addition, our new firm leverages technology to streamline litigation, and staffs cases with seasoned attorneys who serve as long-term partners to their clients.”

“The office itself is a reflection of our distinctive approach,” Palmersheim commented. “Rather than opening shop in the skyscraper jungle of loop law firms, we purposefully chose a non-traditional, loft-style space just north of the Chicago River, near Chicago’s design centers and technology startups—a nod to the fact that we think out-of-the-box in the development of customized strategies for each client and case.”
