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 of your daily operations, cash flow and reputation.

In handling a business litigation case, to put together a distinct team to address the one-of-kind needs of your case, we will draw on our wide local and national network of diverse professionals with whom we have worked for many years.

We will confer with, as needed, consultants and retained potential witnesses with expertise in forensics, valuation, technology, accounting, finance, data analysis, industry knowledge, and other pertinent areas of expertise. We will work with talented investigators to thoroughly command the facts and evidence in your case.

As the result of this sort 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.

Our firm has extensive experience in state and federal court. 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.
