Areas of Practice

Representative practice areas

  • Business law — With decades of extensive experience, our firm spends much of its time each day providing valuable advisory services to our business clients. We take time to understand your business and its objectives so we can work together effectively. We advise clients regarding: sophisticated transactions including mergers, acquisitions, commercial real estate development and construction; financing and related matters; entity selection and formation; employment law and human resources training and consultation; government investigation and compliance including IRS, environmental (EPA and PA DEP), licensing and other administrative and regulatory matters; and day-to-day business matters.
  • Business litigation — From well over 20 years of experience, we're familiar with the special factors in business-related cases that set them apart from non-business cases, including the need to get to know your company, its business and your industry and to keep a constant eye on the ongoing effect of the litigation on your daily operations, cash flow and reputation. As the result of hard work and thorough preparation, we have an excellent record in a wide range of business litigation matters, in trials, hearings, appeals, arbitration, mediation and settlement negotiations. We are always willing and able to take a case to trial when it is in the best interest of our client. This demonstrable readiness to try the cases we handle tends to give our clients appreciable leverage in settlement negotiations.
  • White collar — We have a rare grasp of what professionals, businesses and public figures live through when they face government investigations and the prospect of white collar criminal exposure. We deeply know the daily burden of the threat to our client's family, good name, livelihood and freedom posed by these cases. Driven by this knowledge, we empower our white collar clients with a degree of around-the-clock support and diligent protection which very few law firms comprehend or deliver. We provide extremely thorough, proactive defense, and witness and victim representation, in white collar crime cases.
