About Williams Montgomery & John Ltd

For over 49 years, clients have called upon the trial lawyers of Williams Montgomery & John to vigorously and diligently represent their interests in high-stakes litigation.  Few law firms have more actual trial experience than Williams Montgomery & John.  They take great pride in being "A Firm of Trial Lawyers."

Williams, Montgomery & John lawyers have extensive jury trial, bench trial and arbitration experience involving antitrust, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, professional malpractice, products liability, defective construction, intellectual property, insurance bad faith and white collar litigation.  CBS Corporation named Williams Montgomery & John as its “go to” law firm in Illinois for commercial disputes (Corporate Counsel, 2012), and other large corporations such as 3M, Goodyear, Siemens, IBM, Genentech, Whirlpool and Zurich Insurance Company have relied on our unwavering advocacy.

The firm’s antitrust practice has substantial experience representing corporate clients both prosecuting and defending complex, nationwide antitrust actions.  They have successfully represented clients that have suffered millions of dollars of losses arising from anticompetitive activity or are themselves facing potentially catastrophic liability for alleged antitrust violations. Given the complexity and often enormous stakes involved in antitrust litigation, trials of such cases are very rare.  It thus speaks volumes that three of  their partners have tried antitrust cases to conclusion, and that in each case the jury has returned a verdict in their client’s favor.
