Scott E. Pointner is a Member at Rathje & Woodward, LLC, DuPage County's oldest law firm, and has earned an AV-rating (the highest possible distinction) in the Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory. After three years of litigation experience in Cook and DuPage Counties, he joined the firm in 1999 and became a partner in 2002. Scott has concentrated his practice in three broad categories: commercial real estate, general corporate and finance, and commercial litigation, with homeowners and condominium association law having become more than half of his practice since 2010. In 2016, he was awarded the Leading Lawyer designation for Real Estate Law: Associations & Condominiums, and in 2018, he was named a Top Suburban Business Lawyer and a Top Lawyer - Commercial Litigator. Although his commercial real estate, zoning, landlord/tenant, and general corporate practices have been his transactional focus, Scott's careful attention to detail is shaped in large part by his extensive litigation experience, which helps insulate his documents and transactions from traps too many purely-transactional attorneys often miss. With Scott having litigated cases in fourteen different counties throughout Northern Illinois and having handled a broad range of clients in real estate, zoning, contract, litigation, and corporate matters, Scott’s mix of small and medium-sized businesses and non-profits in general, and homeowners and condo associations in particular, benefit from his integrated approach whereby he effectively leverages his real estate, corporate and finance, and commercial litigation experience to find the best resolutions for his clients.
Scott currently represents a variety of homeowner and condominium associations, from large city-sized lake associations to small one building condo associations and everything in between. Utilizing his extensive homeowners and condominium association experience, he also represents association members, builders, and developers with regard to association issues, including litigation. Finally, his practice also includes collections litigation and other common association cases.
