Litigation

The choice to file a lawsuit is a difficult one. Our process walks clients through a framework to consider the tough choices involved in an environment of litigation. Based on many years experience, and highly successful outcomes for clients, the firm takes an ethical approach to assessing needs and likely results to ensure a wise decision is made by clients with respect to the prospect of litigation.

If a decision is made to march towards trial, clients find they are in good hands. The firm has years of experience trying cases centered around antitrust, employment and labor, licensing, business torts, commercial contracts, construction and real property disputes, corporate governance, director’s and officer’s liability, intellectual property (patent, copyright and trademark), product distribution, sales and leasing, secured and unsecured lending, securities fraud, suretyship, trade secrets & unfair competition.

Contrary to popular myth, not every case requires a large litigation team. Assigning more lawyers and paralegals to a case does not insure a superior result. The more the labor is divided, the harder it is for the trial lawyer to see the whole story, and usually, the trial lawyer who tells the most compelling and internally consistent story wins. Finally, the more people who work on a project, the larger the bill. For all of these reasons, bigger is not necessarily better when it comes to litigation.

The firm’s litigation practice emphasizes the following areas:

  • Antitrust and Trade Regulation
  • Business Torts
  • Commercial Contracts
  • Construction and Real Property Disputes
  • Corporate Governance
  • Director’s and Officer’s Liability
  • Intellectual Property (Patent, Copyright and Trademark)
  • Product Distribution
  • Sales and Leasing
  • Secured and Unsecured Lending
  • Securities Fraud
  • Suretyship
  • Trade Secrets
  • Unfair Competition
