About

Sharing Economy Law Blog is written by attorney Michael Erdman.  It features posts relating to litigation, administrative actions, statutes, regulations, and other legal, business and political developments involving “Sharing Economy” companies.  An associated twitter account embedded in the right hand column includes links to timely articles on these and related subjects.

Michael has been in private practice for nineteen years, and is presently a partner with the Chicago law firm Teeple Leonard & Erdman.  He concentrates his practice on representing innovative real estate brokers and websites, both established firms and start-ups, advising them on a variety of legal issues, including grievances and formal complaints made by state real estate regulators, Realtor associations and boards, multiple listing services and incumbent competitors. Often these issues relate to whether a broker license is required, whether a real estate statute, regulation or rule has been violated, or whether an existing law is being fairly applied to an innovative business model. Michael also represents business and individual clients in litigation (insurance coverage, contract, employment, tort, copyright, trademark, perishable agricultural commodities, ordinance violation, personal injury, commercial and antitrust) and general legal matters.
