As founder and principal of Lysaught Law Office, Eileen Lysaught has broad experience handling both specialized and day-to-day General Counsel duties and executive management.
Following seven years of litigation and insurance-related work, Eileen joined an international consumer goods manufacturer as General Counsel. Over the next 11 years, Eileen oversaw the corporation’s Legal, Human Resource, Quality, Compliance and Operations Departments. As the Vice-President of Operations & General Counsel, Eileen realized that many small and mid-sized companies cannot justify the cost of a full-time General Counsel. In 2009, she created Lysaught Law Office to pioneer that business and employment law value-driven alternative.
Eileen holds a J.D. from DePaul University College of Law, and an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago – Booth School of Business. Her experience includes:
- Human Resource Management
- Contract Management
- Regulatory Compliance
- Recall Compliance
- Product Liability & Safety
- Union Contract Negotiations
- Intellectual Property Management
- Operations Management
- Litigation Management
- Advertising, Sweepstakes & Contest Management
- Quality Management
- Consumer Service Management
Among her memberships and affiliations are the University of Chicago Women In Business Group, the Northcenter Chamber of Commerce, the International Consumer Product Health & Safety Organization, and the American Corporate Counsel Association. She is the Secretary of the Board of the Northcenter Chamber of Commerce; is Vice-President of the Board of the Chicago Child Care Society; and is President of the Disney II Magnet Elementary PTA. Eileen also supports St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Whitney Young Magnet High School, St. Benedict Parish, and Love without Boundaries.
She enjoys frequenting Lincoln Square Athletic Club, gardening, travel, reading, and spending time with her husband and two children.
