I am an experienced corporate/small business attorney practicing in Chicago and the Chicagoland area. My primary areas of practice include banking and commercial finance law, real estate law and general corporate law and I have substantial experience in the following areas (among others):

•  Real estate acquisition/sale/leasing/financing/construction; 
•  Company formation/governance/reorganization/restructuring/sale; 
•  Restaurant Law (vendor contracts, liquor license matters, etc.); 
•  Intellectual property (copyrights, trademarks etc.);  
•  Mortgage and asset based loans (representing borrowers or lenders); 
•  Crowdfunding and other Privately held debt/equity offerings; and 
•  General contract drafting and negotiation. 

   Typically I counsel and represent start-ups; privately held domestic and foreign corporations; limited liability companies and partnerships; high net worth individuals; owners/lessors/developers of residential and commercial real estate and banks and other commercial lending institutions focusing on middle market ($5 - $100 MM) lending. I very much enjoy acting as an outside general counsel to my corporate clients and I truly make an effort to understand each of their businesses and identify ways to create value.

   I am always looking to meet new people and expand my professional network as I believe in the power of making and fostering quality connections. In keeping with that belief I enjoy acting as referral source for my clients and professional contacts and I go out of my way to foster beneficial introductions.

Highly Recommended—Trustworthy, Knowledgeable, and Quick!
Anthony helped me navigate through a very difficult business matter. He was profoundly knowledgeable about the process, responsive (meaning he picked up/returned all of my calls in a timely fashion—including answering a 'Friday evening at 7:30 p.m.' call), and made every effort to help me understand each step of the process. He was extremely flexible when it came to meeting times. He also provided valuable references to other professionals like accountants and utilized his resources in the industry I am in to ensure I was making a good business decision. In addition to all of this, he finished my job so quickly! And finally, when I received my bill, I was thrilled—it was honest, detailed, and not inflated one bit! I have recommended Anthony to several business colleagues and will continue to in the future.

Highly recommended
Anthony performed pro bono service for my small company and was tremendously helpful, patient and an insightful lawyer. I found him to be always willing to help, and clarify things as needed. It's hard to find someone who will give 100%, even when you are paying them; the fact that he offered his services for free AND went above and beyond speaks volume about his personal character and professional work ethic. If I were to ever need his professional services again, I would not hesitate to use him and would refer friends and family without hesitation.

I highly recommend Tony Zeoli
Tony has been instrumental and very helpful to me while I am in the process of starting my own company. He has guided me along the way in dealing with trademarks, patents and manufacturers agreements. He is knowledgeable of most all questions I ask of him and if he doesn't know the answer straight away he will make and take the time to learn the best answer and solution for my needs. I plan to continue to work with Tony as I continue to grow my company.
