Commercial Litigation


Businesses face a broad array of challenging legal disputes.  Whether the matter involves claims of unfair competition, false advertising, breach of contract, fraud, or other business torts, we have the expertise necessary for a successful outcome.  We work closely with our clients to develop and implement an efficient strategy to achieve their litigation objectives, from pre-litigation counseling to trial.  We have decades of experience with the most complex commercial litigation matters, where strategic advice and the highest quality work product are essential.  Our litigators often get involved before litigation arises, advising clients seeking to avoid a legal action.  We also have extensive experience in all types of alternative dispute resolution in commercial litigation actions, including arbitration and mediation.  When litigation is unavoidable, however, our opponents know that we won’t crumble on the courthouse steps.  Our litigators have tried over 300 cases before juries in state and federal courts and earned a national reputation for excellence.
