COMMERCIAL LITIGATION

When deals or agreements fail to go as planned, we counsel our clients on how to best assert their legal rights.  In preparing a strategy for resolving disputes, we believe that it is essential to first identify and understand our clients’ objectives and business needs.  We then analyze our clients’ legal rights and potential risks in order to develop and execute a legal strategy tailored toward meeting their goals.  Throughout our engagement, we maintain strong lines of communication with our clients so that they at all times understand the status of their cases and so that we remain responsive to their needs.  

Further, we strongly believe that an honest and full assessment of a case at the outset is essential to controlling the costs of litigation.  Too often, we have seen other lawyers blindly pursuing a “kitchen sink” strategy of employing every available tactic regardless of the likelihood of success or the circumstances of the particular case.  This approach is not zealous advocacy – it is wasteful.  Instead, we remain focused on our clients’ needs to ensure that our legal strategy provides real value to our client.  We not only fight for our clients’ rights forcefully, we do so intelligently.

As part of our commercial litigation practice, we handle a variety of matters including the following:

  • Counsel clients on developing business and employment practices that both reduce the likelihood of future disputes while protecting our clients’ interests should disagreements arise.
  • Negotiate and review contracts on clients’ behalf, including assessing potential legal risks of such agreements.
  • Negotiate settlements of disputes in advance of litigation.
  • Serve as local counsel for out of town attorneys.
  • Arbitration and mediation.
  • Prosecute and defend our clients’ legal rights in federal and state court trials.
  • Federal and state court appeals.

Whether you need to merely assess potential legal risks or are already in the face of a heated dispute, we encourage you to set up an appointment with us to get our assessment of how to safeguard and advance your legal rights.
