Complex Commercial Litigation
Our highly skilled litigation attorneys are experienced in handling commercial disputes of the most complex nature, including multi-party, multi-issue and multi-jurisdictional matters.
Often collaborating with attorneys from our other practice areas, we have achieved favorable results for our clients in construction disputes, insurance claims and coverage issues, commercial real estate and personal property disputes, breach of contract, commercial class actions, professional malpractice claims, business torts, and securities lawsuits.
We understand that our clients need to continue their normal course of business while litigation is ongoing, and that costly and lengthy litigation can have a significant impact on their ability to do so. We strive for efficiency and simplicity in resolving their business conflicts, and have had great success in settling complex matters through negotiation, arbitration or mediation.
In advocating for our clients, we conduct in-depth research into the parties involved, the case details and the broader issues surrounding investor relations, industry trends and market impact. We employ the full measure of our knowledge, skill and creativity to devise a winning case strategy, argue our case persuasively before judge and jury and bring the case to a successful and timely resolution.
