Elizabeth Kaveny named 2021 Chicago Business Person of the Year

February 23, 2021

We’re delighted to announce that Elizabeth Kaveny, Managing Partner for Kaveny + Kroll Trial Lawyers (www.kavenykroll.com) has been selected by her peers as Chicago’s 2021 Local Business Person Of The Year, based on her incredible contributions to the business community & network throughout the COVID Era.

Kaveny has been on the front lines of working to ensure justice for her clients in the areas of medical error and more. Through her tireless work over the past 25 years, Beth has secured justice and peace of mind for those individuals and their families that have found themselves the victims of a system so much larger and more powerful than themselves. She has lectured throughout the country and worked with a number of organizations to better protect patient rights.

“Covid-19 has brought incredible pain, loss and pressure to our society as a whole,” says Kaveny. “Whether through the illness itself, or the ‘collateral damage’ of financial strife, an overburdened medical system or families pulled apart in order to maintain safe conditions. Anything that we can do to help our clients and the community as a whole to heal and recover is a privilege and an honor, as is this recognition.”

Beth has been very active in many forms of advocacy that have shaped the very laws that can help our citizens. Recently, she was named by Illinois Senate President John Cullerton to the Move Over Task Force to better communicate and enforce Scott’s Law. This appointment reflects her years of dedication to seeking justice for first responders, tollway and construction workers who have been injured or killed roadside due to the negligent conduct of truck and automobile drivers. She has also testified in Springfield previously in favor of legislation imposing harsher penalties against the trucking industry when such tragedies occur. She is also the Chicago Ambassador to the Patient Safety Movement to advocate for safer health practices and a reduction in medical errors.
