The law firm Meagher & Geer, P.L.L.P., is pleased to announce the opening of its Chicago office at 216 North Jefferson Street, Suite 100, Chicago, Illinois.

We are pleased to welcome our new Chicago colleagues, Bob, Daniel I. Babetch, Matthew Bloom, Andrew J. Meyer and Kyle McConnell. In addition to these resident attorneys, Senior Partner Kurt M. Zitzer, who presently practices in the firm’s Phoenix office, will expand his practice to include the new Chicago office. Kurt has been a licensed Illinois attorney since 1990, and he serves on the firm’s Management Committee.

The team of attorneys will be practicing in the areas of insurance coverage, business torts and breach of contract disputes, third party defense and contribution actions, premises liability, professional liability defense, wrongful death, catastrophic loss, toxic torts including asbestos defense, construction and workplace accidents, and automobile accidents.

The Chicago location is part of Meagher & Geer’s growth strategy to provide service to clients in the Midwest, Mountain West and Southwest through multiple locations.

“We’ve been serving clients in the state of Illinois for years, and having a fully staffed office in Chicago’s Loop that includes Bob’s existing team of excellent attorneys allows us to better serve our Illinois clients.” –Bill Hart, Meagher & Geer’s Managing Partner.
