Civil Litigation | Personal Injury | Workers Compensation Employment | Bankruptcy | Collections
We represent clients in every imaginable kind of dispute, whether it involves allegations of civil or criminal liability, whether it concerns business issues, personal injuries, claimed violation of statutes, or professional malpractice, or whether it is to be resolved in a trial court, on appeal, or through arbitration, mediation, or some other form of alternative dispute resolution.
We represent clients in litigating all manner of business disputes - whether the dispute threatens the very existence of a company, clarifies an ongoing business relationship, or presents an important point of principle, even though the amount of money at issue is small. We have litigated claims of breach of a contract, lease, or other written instrument, the break-up of a partnership or joint venture, and all other types of commercial controversies.
Our lawyers are skilled at identifying and arguing threshold legal issues that may avoid protracted litigation, at efficiently and effectively managing discovery, even in cases involving production of millions of pages of documents or enormous amounts of electronic data, and at understanding and persuasively presenting, to courts and juries, issues that are legally and factually complex. Equally important, we are sensitive to the need to minimize the business disruption that may result from litigation of business disputes and to seek results that are consistent with our clients' larger corporate strategies and goals.
We have experience in representing clients in arbitrations, mediations, and all forms of alternative dispute resolution, and are proficient in using those mechanisms to achieve positive results for our clients.
