Real Estate, Business & Estate Planning Law in Changing Times


The Economic Recession and Jobs, the Housing Bubble and New Home Construction, the Debt Ceiling Debate and Interest Rates, and a new mayor taking the reigns in Chicago...many changes are afoot across Chicago, Illinois, and the nation. Each shift of the national landscape directly impacts real estate, business, and estate planning decisions and legal strategy.

The Chicago Real Estate, Business, and Estate Planning Attorneys at Frank M. Greenfield & Associates not only have extensive experience in their fields, but are always on top of the rapidly changing landscape of law in these tumultuous and exciting times.

Frank M. Greenfield & Associates, a professional corporation, has provided a wide range of legal services to individuals and businesses in the greater Chicagoland community since 1968. We are committed to delivering high quality, personalized services. We advance and protect our clients’ interests in an efficient and economical manner. The advantage of a small firm is that every client receives individualized attention.

As such, our Blog will not only be your source for the most recent changes and biggest news in law, we will also focus on how a superior knowledge of the law can provide unexpected opportunities for financial growth and security that most law firms do not take the trouble to pursue.

The Chicago Tribune recently reported that fixed mortgage rates have fallen to historic lows and are likely to continue to decline.  The average on a 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 4.01 recently, according to Freddie MacThese historic lows create an opportunity to acquire both residential and commercial real estate, and Real Estate Attorneys are gearing up to guide prospective buyers and sellers through this important process.

Also, Crain’s Chicago Business recently ran an editorial discussing the meteoric rise of the “daily deal” business, most notably the success of local Chicago start-up, Groupon.  Groupon burst onto the scene during economic turmoil, and yet has grown to thrive by understanding that shaky consumer confidence can translate to profitable business opportunities for those who are willing to work smart and meet challenges.  The lesson for business owners and potential entrepreneurs is that now is the time to make big moves to reorganize your business, or even to open a new one.  Business Law can appear complex, but the right Business Law Attorney can help you protect your assets as you chart your company’s future.

Law is not static, and, unlike the old cliché, it is not written in stone. In fact, staying on top of legal and world news is a client’s greatest advantage and a lawyer’s most powerful tool.
