About Us

Azam Chandran & Gilani LLP (“ACG”) is a Chicago-based boutique law firm that is focused on providing legal services in the areas of corporate, real estate and family law.  Our founding partners have nearly fifteen years of experience in advising clients ranging from individuals to multinational corporations on general corporate matters, franchise and enterprise law, trusts and estate planning (including Islamic estate planning requirements) and employment law.  Having worked at some of the largest law firms in the world prior to founding ACG, our aim is to provide our clients with the same level of sophisticated legal services that they may expect from a large law firm in an efficient and cost-effective manner.  Along with the savings created by a small firm cost structure, we offer our client flexible billing options and attempt to tailor our representation to suit the requirements of the client.  At ACG, we attempt to do more than simply advise a client on an issue as it arises; instead, we endeavor to fully understand our clients’ business and goals so that we can counsel our clients on how to address an issue well before it becomes a problem.  We believe that the combination of our commitment to personal service, our significant experience in practice and our competitive cost structure are unmatched in the market.


Pro Bono & Community Involvement

At ACG, we believe that providing pro bono legal services and being involved in the community are a requirement of our profession and, far more importantly, are a source of great personal satisfaction to our attorneys.  To that end, our attorneys are heavily involved in numerous charitable and professional organizations that provide legal or other services to the community.  These include:


  • The Downtown Islamic Center of Chicago
  • Community Builders, Chicago, a faith-based social services organization
  • The Islamic Society of North America
  • The Interfaith Youth Core
