Ms. Choh also has experience with bankruptcy proceedings, complex product liability cases, franchisor-franchisee disputes, and mass tort litigation.
“The combination of the Firm’s highly collaborative environment and wealth of challenging matters have allowed me to grow tremendously during my time at Burke Warren,” says Ms. Choh. “I have the utmost respect for the people that I work with and I am grateful for the opportunity to further develop my practice.”
Ms. Choh received her J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School in 2007 and her B.A., magna cum laude, from Georgetown University. She can be contacted at 312/840-7005 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Adam Jung is a member of the Firm’s corporate practice, working closely with and providing counsel to entrepreneurs, small business owners, financial institutions, in-house counsel, and governmental entities for a wide range of transactions. Mr. Jung represents acquirers and target businesses in stock and asset acquisitions, sales, and mergers. He routinely advises both lenders and borrowers in commercial loans and financing transactions. Mr. Jung analyzes, negotiates, structures, and drafts a variety of contracts that include employment and consulting agreements, non-competition and restrictive covenant agreements, purchase and supply contracts, service agreements, intellectual property and licensing agreements, and sponsorship agreements. Additionally, Mr. Jung assists clients with structuring, organizing, and documenting new business ventures and entities.
“Some of Burke Warren’s greatest strengths are its collaborative environment and the wealth of experience among its personnel. The support from my colleagues allows me to better serve my clients and to continue to grow my practice,” says Mr. Jung.
Mr. Jung received his J.D. from the University of Illinois Law School, cum laude, in 2006 and his B.S. from the University of Illinois in 2003. He can be contacted at 312/840-7097 or email@example.com.
Adam Rick is a member of the Firm’s Litigation and Religious Organizations practice groups. He defends institutions against claims based on alleged malfeasance by their employees. While Mr. Rick has won cases on motion, at trial, and on appeal, he also appreciates that cases can be won through negotiation. To that end, he has achieved multiple no-liability, walk-away settlements that required no payments by his clients. Mr. Rick’s most recent courtroom successes have resulted in summary judgment and dismissal of negligent supervision claims.
“As attorneys, we owe a solemn duty to advocate for our clients. Their trust should be earned through frank advice, hard work, and a focus on obtaining the best possible outcomes,” says Mr. Rick. “I am grateful for the responsibility entrusted to this law firm by its clients, and for the opportunity to take on their most important legal challenges.”
Mr. Rick graduated first in his class from Franklin Pierce (now University of New Hampshire School of Law) in 2009. He received his B.A. from Pomona College in 2002. He can be reached at 312/840-7053 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
