"I vetted and interviewed several attorneys in the Chicago area before choosing Timothy Swabb as my local counsel in international commercial litigation now pending before the United States District Court. This case involves complex choice of law issues, counterclaims, voluminous discovery in two languages, and arcane technical issues. Tim's thorough knowledge of the Local Rules and his insider knowledge and direct access to the Court's staff have helped us navigate our way through the procedural issues seamlessly -- especially during the pandemic. I have found Tim's knowledge of the substantive law to be thorough and comprehensive. What I appreciate the most about having Tim as my local counsel is that he is proactive; he does not wait for things to happen to us, always taking the initiative to recommend strategies and the next course of action in order to prosecute our case -- and defend the counterclaims. Tim's character is impeccable and I recommend him without reservation."

""Tim Swabb immediately commanded the respect of the Court. He thoroughly prepared witnesses to testify on complex issues related to financial accounting and information technology principles. He had a solid knowledge of the rules of evidence, as the Court acknowledged by sustaining his objections. And he added a substantial measure of experience and presence to the defense. Mr. Swabb is an extremely qualified and ethical litigator and trial attorney.""
