William Choslovsky, Donna B. More and Mary T. Nicolau were featured in the Law360 article, “Fox Rothschild Adds Two Partners To Its Windy City Office.” Full text can be found in the May 21, 2015, article, but a synopsis is below.

Two partners joined Fox Rothschild’s growing new Chicago office. William Choslovsky is joining both the litigation and bankruptcy group, while Mary T. Nicolau joins in real estate.

The Chicago office’s managing partner, Donna B. More, said that the firm’s goal with this was to “expediently and strategically add talent in our Chicago office to broaden and deepen the services we provide to clients.”

“Bill and Mary are superb additions to Fox’s nationally known real estate and litigation teams,” More added, “and enhance our capabilities in real estate and real estate tax, as well as in litigation, financial restructuring and bankruptcy, not only in Illinois but throughout the country.”

Choslovsky said that his motivation to join “was singular, and in two words, the motivation is Fox Rothschild.”

“Without being corny, the most sincere answer is I would not have made a move to any other established Chicago firm,” he added.

Choslovsky splits his time evenly between commercial litigation and bankruptcy restructuring. His litigation practices focus primarily on class actions and his clients include hedge funds, banks, companies and families in Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 proceedings.

“To be a founding partner of sorts in the Chicago office, where the sky's the limit, and with this amazing backbone behind us ... it’s liberating. It’s genuinely exciting” Choslovsky added.

Nicolau helps clients minimize real estate tax liabilities and solve taxing authority disputes.

She has significant experience representing clients before local assessors and in hearings before local boards of review, the Property Tax Appeal Board of Illinois, Illinois Department of Revenue and the circuit courts on exemptions, sales in error, tax sales specific objections and related tax issues.
