Gensburg Calandriello & Kanter, P.C. announces the addition of Norman Berger as senior counsel, a transition that will strengthen the firm’s Commercial Litigation Practice Group and add a specialty in environmental law. Berger brings more than 30 years of experience to GCK’s boutique law practice.   

A member of the firm’s commercial litigation practice, Berger has served as lead trial counsel in dozens of jury and bench trials across multiple jurisdictions and industries including real estate, retail, heavy manufacturing, chemicals, and recycling. He represents clients in state and federal courts nationwide and before state and federal agencies, as well as in arbitration and mediations. He has served as an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association.

Berger will also advise clients on matters involving real estate, manufacturing, employment, environmental, class action, corporate, securities, closely held business, ERISA, and insurance issues. He has in-depth experience with complicated technical and regulatory issues and with matters involving scientific and other technical experts. He will counsel clients on insurance coverage, permitting, enforcement and administrative matters.

Berger serves as a member and past chairman of the Dean’s Advisory Council at DePaul University College of Law, as a faculty member of the National Institute of Trial Advocacy, and a founding participant in the Pro Bono Committee for Representation of Indigent Defendants. In 2013, Berger won the Outstanding Service to DePaul University Award.

Berger received a J.D. degree from DePaul University College of Law in 1981 and was awarded a B.A from the University of Wisconsin in 1978. He was formerly a partner at Husch Blackwell. 

“We have known and worked closely with Norm Berger for many years and are delighted to welcome him to Gensburg Calandriello & Kanter, P.C.’s commercial litigation practice,” said Founding Shareholder Lane Gensburg. “We are fortunate to have an additional trial lawyer of Berger’s caliber as part of the GCK legal team and proud to offer his environmental law proficiency to our clients,” said Gensburg.
