Business Litigation

The Firm’s business litigators have significant depth and breadth of resources and detailed knowledge of clients’ industries and business concerns. As trusted counselors to middle market businesses, and particularly early stage, growth companies and entrepreneurs, we understand that how a company or entrepreneur handles dispute risk oftentimes is the difference between business success and failure.

Litigation is often about efficiently analyzing complex legal and business challenges, and understanding litigation risk. All too often attorneys think and express themselves in terms of “cause and effect” or “action/reaction.” While our business litigators have impressive records as trial lawyers, we additionally focus on achieving creative, efficient, cost-effective solutions for our clients.

Of course, there are times that disputes cannot be quickly resolved, and our clients face the prospect of a trial or an arbitration that may “go all the way”. Our attorneys have deep pre-trial, trial and alternative dispute resolution experience in connection with both state and federal court actions. Our attorneys can take tough cases to trial or arbitration, and win.

Our business litigators have represented household name Fortune 500 companies, middle market companies, and emerging growth companies and entrepreneurs. Our business litigators along with the other attorneys at the Firm seek to forge long term relationships with our clients throughout their evolutionary path. We deliver efficiency and value to every client we serve through a well-defined budget and clear communication about their case.
