The Firm

Founded in 1970 by Cliff Ganan and Jay Shapiro, Ganan & Shapiro has been advising clients in workers’ compensation matters for fifty years.  Since founding, Ganan & Shapiro has steadily grown in size and expertise. What started out as two entrepreneurial attorneys has grown to include nine partners and eight associates spread between two offices. Our size has allowed us to provide greater coverage across Illinois, while still being nimble enough to adapt to our client’s needs.

With offices in Chicago and Peoria, Illinois, our attorneys are able to cover every venue in the State. Our Chicago office is located in the LaSalle Law Centre on the 17th Floor of 120 N. LaSalle Street. Our move to this building in January of 2018 places us in the heart of the Chicago Loop, across the street from City Hall and within walking distance to the James R. Thompson Center, home of the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission, and the Richard J. Daley Center, home of the Cook County Circuit Courts. This central location allows us to handle cases in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs, as well as visit clients as necessary for claim reviews and to present client seminars on a regular basis.

Our Peoria office was founded in 2001 and is located in the Associated Bank building.  As our practice has grown, our Peoria office has been essential in covering much of the downstate area. Despite this separate location, our attorneys share the same vision and goals, providing great service and advice to our clients.
