Ancel Glink has a long tradition of high quality representation of Illinois local governments. Our attorneys understand public service and the challenges that public officials and entities confront with limited resources and an increasing demand for more services.
Our tradition began with the vision of Louis Ancel. Lou was one of the first attorneys in the state to make the representation of governmental bodies the centerpiece of his law practice. Lou expanded the firm to assist municipalities through the difficulties of wartime shortages during World War II and the boom that followed. Lou was also the Secretary of the Illinois Constitutional Study Commission, which was instrumental in the revisions of Illinois' previous constitution.
