Dispute resolution is a core aspect of our service to firm clients. Business owners, in-house counsel, and individuals have – for decades – turned to our highly experienced commercial litigation team to resolve difficult disputes through arbitration, mediation and litigation proceedings in state and federal courts.
Our focus is on creative, vigorous representation and cost-conscious solutions. We believe that the best dispute resolution strategy is that which is developed in the context of the client’s specific objectives and tolerance for risk. From the very beginning, our litigators help clients to assess their options and make informed decisions about how to proceed. Although negotiated resolution is often the most efficient course, our team has successfully tried numerous cases to verdict, and has significant appellate court experience.
Clients have relied on us to represent them - as both plaintiffs and defendants - in a wide range of litigation. Our team has particular background in intellectual property-related claims; construction-related disputes; class action defense; contract and partnership disputes; white collar; data security; and estate litigation matters.
Our team includes attorneys with more than 20 years of practice in litigation and early career experience at some of the country’s largest law firms. Their litigation work has spanned a broad range of industries, from software to consumer products to broadcasting. In addition to providing representation in litigation proceedings, our attorneys regularly counsel clients on techniques to minimize the risk of future disputes.
Litigation clients also benefit from our team’s collaboration with colleagues in related areas of practice, including Construction & Real Estate, Estates & Trusts, Intellectual Property & Technology Law, Corporate, Mergers & Acquisitions and Tax Law, and Employment Law.
From individuals to start-up businesses to established public companies, clients have come to depend on our litigation attorneys to communicate complex issues clearly, and to resolve disputes efficiently and effectively.
