The Firm's Business Litigation Practice
The Firm has substantial experience in all phases of litigation, and regularly represents clients in jury and non-jury trials before both state and federal courts. Our trial experience allows us to effectively streamline and focus the litigation and discovery process from its inception as we can anticipate and prepare the disputed issues for trial. We utilize a team approach to litigation, drawing upon the abilities, insight, and experience of many of the Firm’s attorneys. We recognize the importance of communication with our clients and regularly report on the status of pending cases, and meaningfully involve our clients in the decision making process.
The Firm’s litigation expertise encompasses a wide range of business-related disputes, including those involving conflicting interpretations or breaches of contract, employment relationships, partnership and corporate dissolutions, commercial and residential real property, intellectual property, insurance coverage, and business torts such as fraud, unfair competition, interference with business, breach of fiduciary duty, and conversion, for example. The Firm represents clients in a variety of industries from entrepreneurs to large publicly held corporations. We have the capacity and expertise to take a leading role in multi-party complex litigation, and the flexibility to handle smaller cases in a cost effective manner.
The Firm recognizes that sometimes our clients are better served by staying out of court, and pursuing mediation or arbitration to resolve a dispute. We regularly counsel our clients on ways to avoid litigation or to position themselves for success should litigation become necessary. The Firm\’s lawyers work with their clients to determine the most effective path to reaching the client’s goals, which path may be pre-litigation negotiation, mediation, arbitration, or full scale litigation and trial.
