Chicago Law Partners, LLC is a boutique law firm focused on representing professional societies, trade associations, foundations, charities and other not-forprofit organizations. CLP was founded by longtime partners and colleagues with a vested interest in taking client service to a higher level. At CLP, we believe that a boutique firm with a focused concentration provides our clients a more favorable setting for obtaining legal services than a large firm setting.
