Firm Bio

What We Do.

Business Litigation.  Reyes Kurson has significant experience and a record of success in resolving a broad variety of commercial disputes.

  • Commercial Litigation, including claims of breach of fiduciary duty, consumer fraud, breach of contract and equitable claims, directors’ and officers’ liabilities, and property damage.
  • Business Torts, including claims of unfair trade practices, defamation (corporate), tortious interference with contract, business expectancy and opportunity, and fraud.
  • ADR, including proceedings before FINRA, JAMS, AAA and ADR Systems, and attendant confirmation proceedings.

FINRA/Broker-Dealer Litigation, Investigations and Counseling.  At any given time, Reyes Kurson has between 10-20 active FINRA arbitrations for our broker-dealer clients.

  • Customer and Industry Disputes, including claims for breach of fiduciary duty, suitability, fraud, negligent supervision, breach of employment contract/non-solicitation clause, U5 expungements with claims for defamation, wrongful termination, false light and/or tortious interference, and U4 expungements.
  • Investigations, from the first, often “informal” inquiry through any subsequent enforcement proceedings.
  • Compliance and “sanity checks” for in-house counsel concerning new regulations, priorities and recordkeeping.

Transactions.  Reyes Kurson assists clients in structuring, negotiating, documenting and closing a wide variety of transactions.  We also provide surge capacity to in-house attorneys.

  • Finance, including commercial lending, use of SPEs, corporate private placements, public finance (government and conduit bond issues, public offerings, private placements, and direct bank placements), and affordable housing.
  • Real Estate, including commercial leases, acquisitions and dispositions, real estate finance, and Illinois property tax.
  • Corporate, including entity formation and multi-entity reorganizations, asset acquisitions and dispositions, contracts, and due diligence.  

Government Affairs.  Companies that desire to do business in Illinois need to interact with state and local government.  Sometimes those interactions can be troublesome.  Reyes Kurson attorneys have played significant roles in state and local government, so when problems arise, businesses call Reyes Kurson.  The Firm’s connections give our clients access to key decision-makers, and our strategies help clients make the right choices.
