Companies often face complex disputes with other businesses, government entities, or groups of individuals, which require an understanding of both the business issue and the industry of the client.

Our Business Litigation practice specializes in handling these complex disputes, representing leaders in diverse industry sectors, including many Fortune 100 companies, in connection with their most important litigation matters. What sets us apart from our peers is our depth of trial and arbitration experience, class action expertise, and connections to the specialized business litigation courts across the country.

Our ultimate goal is to advance our clients’ interests. We understand that a client’s business plan, balance sheet, and competitive profile are critical elements for successfully positioning litigation matters from the outset. We are committed to developing solutions to help our clients solve their toughest problems, and we approach each new challenge as an urgent business matter to be resolved expeditiously and cost-effectively. We specialize in work for clients across all industries with respect to disputes including:

  • Breach of Contract/Fiduciary Duty
  • Business Torts
  • Partnership Disputes
  • Private Deals/Post-Closing Disputes
  • Bad Faith Litigation
  • Regulatory Investigations and Litigation
  • Privacy & Cyber-security
  • Restrictive Covenant/Trade Secret Litigation
  • Insurance Disputes
  • Bankruptcy Adversary Proceedings

We aggressively seek litigation solutions short of trial, and we have significant expertise in alternative dispute resolution methods such as mediation and arbitration. In structuring settlements, we look at the overall insurance, regulatory, and tax implications—both in the near-term and for the future. When trial is called for, we bring exceptional experience and skill to the courtroom as well as an impressive record of success.

Our commitment to innovation and technology allows us to provide a distinct competitive advantage for our clients. We recognize the potentially crippling costs of discovery, particularly e-discovery, in major litigation and are committed to employing creative, cost-saving solutions that will maximize value to our clients without compromising excellence. Our Litigation Technology Group is an in-house operation featuring a state-of-the-art support facility with a full-time staff that allows for increased attorney efficiency, reduced vendor costs, enhanced responsiveness, and leading-edge electronic presentations at trial.
