John P. Killacky Named Equity Partner and Patrick R. Boland Promoted to Partner at Momkus
In his twenty years of practice, Killacky has focused his legal practice on providing practical, business-oriented advice to clients of all sizes across many industries. He has served a partner at a large international law firm and general counsel of a publicly-traded company. In his current practice, Killacky focuses on litigation, business law and general counsel services, primarily to entities in the insurance, financial services, manufacturing and retail industries.
Killacky has considerable litigation experience, having tried complex cases in state and federal courts, as well as before arbitration panels throughout the country. He has conducted internal investigations for clients and represented them in responding to subpoenas and investigations by government agencies. In addition, he advises clients on all types of business transactions, including corporate formation and governance, mergers and acquisitions, secured financings, real estate leases, commercial contracts, and independent contractor and employment agreements.
Boland is an accomplished commercial litigator, having resolved numerous disputes at the trial and appellate court levels. His commercial litigation experience includes pursuing and defending claims arising from breaches of fiduciary duty and violation of the Illinois Business Corporations Act and Limited Liability Act. Of note, Boland resolved a complex family business and trust dispute resulting in an eight figure out-of-court settlement.
He also advocates for clients in all manner of construction disputes pertaining to job-site safety, breaches of contract, and enforcement of public and private mechanic's liens. Boland currently counsels and defends a national precast steel erection company in litigation arising from an accident during the expansion of the University of Alabama's Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Boland has successfully litigated in federal district and appellate courts. He has argued before the United States Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in litigation that resulted in substantial recovery for his client. Recently, Boland obtained summary judgment against a life insurance company requiring the payment of more than one-quarter of a million dollars in benefits to his clients.
