David A. Eisenberg
David Eisenberg is the Managing Partner of Loftus and Eisenberg, Ltd and his passion and tenacity has been integral in the success and growth of the firm since it was established in June of 2020. David’s practice includes all facets of commercial litigation with a specific focus on construction law. He takes a personal approach to his practice, going beyond simply connecting with clients and understanding their problems and goals, but taking on their problems as his own, fighting for them as he would himself or his family.
David has extensive experience in litigation and alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration and mediation, and has tried numerous cases to verdict. David was part of the trial team who secured the largest judgment in Illinois in 2016 in a case arising under the False Claim Act. Since establishing the firm, David’s construction practice has largely focused on representing owners either in disputes with contractors or insurance companies and he continues to expand his practice and expertise across all facets of business law.
Although David prefers to resolve disputes in a collaborative fashion, prior to litigation arising if possible, he recognizes the need to aggressively pursue and protect his clients’ interests in court. He has experience in sophisticated construction disputes, difficult real estate disputes, complex insurance coverage disputes, as well as overall general business disputes.
David is a leader in the world of construction litigation and frequently represents architects, owners, contractors, and subcontractors in legal matters concerning construction and design. Construction litigation matters can stem from construction defects, breaches of contract, significant delays, property damage, mechanics liens, among other issues. From supporting clients with transactional and business planning and drafting construction contracts at the outset of a project to minimize the likelihood of litigation, to helping resolve disputes that arise during construction, or representing parties in court, David has the legal proficiency to ensure seamless construction projects.
Super Lawyers named David as an Illinois Super Lawyer in both 2022 and 2023, with only 5% of attorneys in Illinois receiving the designation. Previously David had been named an Illinois Super Lawyer Rising Star by Super Lawyers, one of only 2.5% of Illinois attorneys under the age of 40 given the distinction, every year from 2010 through 2013 and 2015 through 2021. David was also named to the 2016 Chicago Jewish 36 Under 36 List by the Jewish United Fund and has previously served as the Chair of the Construction Law and Mechanics Lien Subcommittee of the Chicago Bar Association.
Prior to establishing an alternative-based fee law firm with co-founding partner Alexander Loftus, David was litigation counsel at Stoltmann Law Offices and worked on numerous multi-million dollar disputes across a wide range of cases through business planning, mediation, arbitration, and trial.
Much of David’s career was spent with Much Shelist, P.C., a Chicago litigation powerhouse ranked by Chambers USA and perennially named one of the Best Law Firms in America. David also has experience as general counsel at renowned contracting firms, Exess Exterior Corporation and X-ess Public Adjusters Company.
David has authored and co-authored articles, book chapters and other publications relating to litigation, including the “Trial Practice: Pleading Practice” chapter for the 2010 edition of IICLE’s Mechanics Liens in Illinois.
