About Us

Law Offices A.E. Gustafsson, P.C. was founded in Chicago, Illinois, in January 1993 by Annette Gustafsson Guenther, who had a vision of starting a law firm that provided not only excellent legal services, but also offered international based clients an abundance of value added services and consultation with a focus on identifying and explaining legal and business based differences between the U.S. and, in particular, Northern Europe, enabling clients to set realistic strategies suited for the U.S. market and minimize cultural misconceptions.

Born and primarily raised in Sweden, Annette is a Swedish attorney who graduated from Uppsala University School of Law earning a LLM degree in 1986 as well as a U.S. attorney who graduated from Chicago Kent School of Law earning a juris doctor degree in 1992. Prior to starting Law Offices A.E. Gustafsson, P.C., Annette clerked at the District Court of Kristinehamn and the Swedish Tax Authority of Västmanland and worked as an associate lawyer at a Chicago based business law firm focusing on international clients for over 4 years. The U.S. has been a part of Annette’s personal life for the past 40 years. She has resided, attended school and worked in the U.S. and Sweden.

In 2000, Law Offices A.E. Gustafsson, P.C. moved its offices from downtown Chicago to its current location in the Chicago suburb of Naperville where we are located in a charming loft building. In addition to Annette, the firm’s staff include a senior immigration lawyer, an immigration assistant, a corporate paralegal, a business client services coordinator and accounting and administrative support staff.
