Fred Bartlit and Philip Beck Named by NLJ as Two of the Top 10 Litigators in Illinois

November 1999

NLJ Selects Top 10 Litigators in Illinois:

The National Law Journal has selected the Top 10 litigators in Illinois.  Among them are Fred Bartlit and Philip Beck, both partners in the law firm Bartlit Beck Herman Palenchar & Scott LLP (Chicago, IL).  No other firm was represented twice on the list.

Among his achievements, Mr. Bartlit won a major patent infringement lawsuit in 1994 against Miles Inc., and he represented United Technologies Corporation in an antitrust case where a jury found the company had a monopoly, but they did not assess damages against it.

Mr. Beck has handled a number of complex cases as well, including two that the National Law Journal considered among the top defense verdicts of 1994 and 1997.  Both Mr. Bartlit and Mr. Beck are available to discuss complex litigation in Illinois and around the United States.
