Alexander Konetzki joined Ziliak Law in July 2015. At Ziliak Law, his focus is primarily on working with startups, advising them on steps to take to ensure that they start off on sound legal footing and assisting them with entity selection and formation.
Prior to joining the firm, Alex was an associate at Bernstein Law Firm, LLC, and before that at Levin Riback Law Group, P.C. At both firms, he worked on a variety of matters including breach of contract and warranty cases, non-compete agreements, conversion of property claims and general litigation support.
Alex did not immediately jump into the practice of law after obtaining his JD. He first ventured into politics, working as President Obama’s National Voter Protection Hotline Director during the last presidential election. There, he was responsible for recruiting and managing approximately 250 attorneys, paralegals, law students and other professionals who were responsible for addressing questions about voting rights and helping ensure compliance with Federal Election Commission regulations.
Admitted to practice law in Illinois, Alex obtained his JD with a Certificate in International and Comparative Law from DePaul University College of Law. Alex also has a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and English Literature, conferred with highest honors, from the University of Illinois at Chicago and a Master of Philosophy in International Relations from the University of Cambridge.
