Vincent T. Borst


Clients come to lawyers with problems to solve. I like to solve those problems quickly and efficiently, whether they relate to documenting a new transaction, or guiding the client through complex litigation.

My Background

I am a seasoned litigator who represents clients in complex litigation in state and federal courts throughout the country at the trial and appellate levels. I represent plaintiff and defendant clients in a wide variety of litigation relating to Civil RICO, fraud, fraudulent conveyances, equipment leasing, secured lending, mortgage foreclosures and aviation related matters.

I am AV Preeminent Peer Review-rated by Martindale Hubbell, its highest level of peer recognition for legal ability and ethical standards. As an extension of my daily work, I am an active member of the American Bar Association Section of Litigation and Air & Space Law Forum and the Illinois Association of Defense Trial Counsel. I hold a commercial pilot certificate with airplane single engine land and sea, multiengine land helicopter and instrument airplane ratings. I also hold a flight instructor certificate with airplane single and multiengine and instrument airplane ratings.
