When a business or its owners bring affirmative claims seeking to vindicate important rights, the stakes are high. Likewise, when a business or its owners face claims that threaten the enterprise, its finances, its assets or its reputation, an effective defense is critical.
Our experience bringing and defending complex claims spans a full range of businesses, transactions, and legal issues central to the modern and ever-changing commercial world. Our clients range from Fortune 500 corporations, to middle market businesses, startups, partnerships, and family-owned companies.
A sampling of our complex business litigation experience includes:
While litigation is our specialty, we know it is often a stressful interruption to your business. That’s why—when the circumstances are right—we fight to win through creative problem-solving, mediation, alternative dispute resolution, negotiation and other pathways that can lead to an expedited and positive result out of court. Should those avenues fail, or not represent the optimal approach, our team offers decades of experience handling all phases of trial and appeal in state and federal courts.
In strategizing and managing complex business disputes, we draw on experience in private practice as well as enforcement. Our team members have served in U.S. Attorney’s offices, as Special Assistant District Attorneys, as partners in large law firms, as arbitrators, and one is a former police investigator. The body of this experience informs our understanding of how to develop, scrutinize and present evidence, examine witnesses at trial and deposition, present winning cases before juries, judges and arbitrators, and maximize leverage.
We always fight to win, but know how to win with minimal fighting or no fighting at all. The path forward is always guided by your goals and objectives, and proceeds with a focus on clear, continual communication and practical business thinking.
