Freeborn Expands Chicago Office and Litigation Practice with Addition of Associate Carly Allen

CHICAGO – Freeborn & Peters LLP continues the expansion of its litigation practice group and Chicago office with the addition of Carly M. Allen as an associate. 

Allen previously served as a 2021 summer intern at Freeborn, where she worked with the litigation practice group on projects involving trademark litigation, non-solicitation and non-compete agreements, and other commercial litigation matters.  

“We’re pleased to officially welcome Carly to the firm as a litigation associate,” said William E. Russell, Freeborn co-managing partner. “Carly provided valuable support during her internship, and we’re excited for her to continue to grow in her legal career.”

Allen received her undergraduate degree from the University of Texas, magna cum laude, and her law degree from the University of Michigan Law School. In law school, she served as the associate editor of the Journal of Race and Law, the programming chair of the Women Law Student Association, and a student attorney for the Environmental Law and Sustainability Clinic and the Civil-Criminal Litigation Clinic. 

Freeborn's litigation practice group brings both bench strength and deep experience to each client matter. Known as a Litigation Powerhouse®, its members are “litigators first” and their philosophy is to prepare cases to be tried. Even when settlement is appropriate, their trial-ready approach provides the best ultimate outcome.
