Trial Network Logo_0.png

Freeborn is the exclusive member for Northern and Central Illinois in The Trial Network, a professional network composed of more than 5,000 attorneys at 24 nationally recognized, independent law firms practicing in more than 125 offices throughout the United States.

The Network has been recognized by Chambers Global as a leading legal network for the past five years and is noted for providing “solid service to clients across the country.” Network membership is by invitation only, following a thorough vetting process, and is limited to nationally recognized litigation firms composed of lawyers who are preeminent in their respective jurisdictions. Members are reviewed every three years to ensure adherence to the Network’s high standards. As a result, we confidently rely on fellow members to deliver the exceptional client service and results you have come to expect from Freeborn.

The Trial Network provides top-notch educational opportunities for our attorneys and clients through their Litigation SuperCourses, which bring together thought leaders on cutting-edge litigation topics for comprehensive three-day CLE programs. The Network’s Leadership Roundtable, Women in Network (WIN) Society, Member Symposium, and Marketing Directors’ Forum provide additional opportunities to deepen relationships, grow professionally, and collaborate with other members.

Freeborn is a member of the invitation-only GGI Global Alliance (formerly Geneva Group International). This is the largest global alliance of independent law, accounting, audit and consulting firms. We are the only Chicago-area law firm member, and the second law firm in Illinois.

Our membership gives us access to GGI’s local professional service experts. This professional network spans over 345 member firms with 550 offices across more than 100 countries. These specialists have in-depth knowledge of the legal, financial and economic practices in their geographic and business markets.

As a result, clients who do business internationally get the competitive advantage of reliable professionals in many parts of the world. This level of local expertise is hard to duplicate through other channels.
