BFKN is pleased to welcome Louis Chronowski to the firm as a partner in our Motor Vehicle Group. Lou is a commercial litigator and counselor who assists motor vehicle manufacturers and franchisors navigate a complex set of laws governing how they interact with their franchisees, dealers, or distributors. For more than 20 years, Lou has represented clients in manufacturer dealer franchisor-franchisee, real estate, construction, intellectual property, business torts, complex contract, trade secret, and restrictive covenant disputes. His practice includes all aspects of pre-litigation counseling and litigation. Having tried many matters before federal, state, and administrative bodies to verdict or judgment, Lou has extensive knowledge on how to resolve seemingly impossible hardships facing his clients as a result of the legal and regulatory environment in which they operate, notably in the era of COVID-19. He provides pragmatic, economical advice and advocacy to his clients.
"We are very excited to have Lou join our Motor Vehicle Group. He is a seasoned commercial litigator and strategic advisor for many motor vehicle manufacturers and distributors across the industry, including manufacturers and distributors of passenger vehicles, heavy- and light-duty trucks, and recreational vehicles. His knowledge and experience will be a tremendous asset to the Group." — Owen Smith, Co-Chair, Motor Vehicle Group
