Ari focuses his practice in telecommunications, as well as real estate related litigation.  His experience over his 37-year career includes litigation of complex real estate related matters such as construction defects, commercial and mechanic’s lien foreclosures, leasehold, easement and contract disputes, broker’s liens, lender liability, title insurance and title disputes, condemnation and zoning issues. He has also handled litigation on behalf of wireless providers involving siting and zoning of various wireless service facilities under the 1996 Telecommunications Act, including zoning board of appeal hearings and administrative law proceedings, as well as “shot-clock” violation disputes.  Ari has been a lecturer on the enforcement and litigation of mechanic’s liens and construction disputes and began his career as in-house counsel for Chicago Title Insurance Company, one of the nation’s largest title insurance companies, where he litigated numerous title disputes.  Later, he was an associate and then partner with the Chicago office of Bell, Boyd and Lloyd (now known as K&L Gates). Ari joined Ginsberg Jacobs as of counsel when the firm was formed in 2010.
