Freeborn’s primary goal is to become an extension of our client’s teams to help them succeed.

Six lawyers and six staff personnel came together to launch Freeborn & Peters LLP on June 6, 1983. The group was young but determined to grow the Freeborn’s business and provide exceptional legal services. In the summer of 1992, Freeborn moved to 311 South Wacker Drive in Chicago, which remains its headquarters today. Freeborn’s Springfield office then opened in 2000, providing an opportunity to represent clients before the Illinois General Assembly and state governmental agencies. In 2006, the firm launched the E-Discovery Lab, which has since saved clients millions of dollars in comprehensive data management and discovery charges. From 2016 to 2017, Freeborn merged with other law firms in key markets to develop offices in New York, Richmond, and Tampa. Today, Freeborn has over 130 attorneys across five offices, practicing in eight practice groups and five industry teams.

Innovation is critical in driving business at Freeborn. Discovering new markets or up-and-coming topics to provide legal counsel is how Freeborn’s Emerging Industries Team has continued to grow. The Emerging Industries Team focuses on bringing legal insights to a number of technological innovations that are reshaping today’s society such as blockchain, cryptocurrency, crowdfunding, artificial intelligence, FinTech, and more.

Although Freeborn is a midsize law firm, our roster of attorneys who practice various disciplines reach regions across the globe. Freeborn’s expertise in identifying legal opportunities or areas for growth has led to new and evolving business for Freeborn across different areas of the world.

As the world is ever-changing, Freeborn’s Emerging Industries team is excited to explore the new opportunities that arise. Continuously exceeding client’s expectations is what sets Freeborn & Peters and the innovation of the Emerging Industries team above the rest.
