The Business Litigation Group’s mission is simple: to resolve a client’s dispute successfully and economically. We start with a realistic assessment of the case. If the right path is negotiation, we have a long history of mediation and conciliation experience to draw upon. But when the path has to run through a courtroom, our electronic discovery systems and our considerable state and federal trial experience have given clients successful results across the country.

In cases ranging from shareholder disputes to claims of commercial fraud to IP disputes to complex contractual claims, we manage a case the way you manage your business—with discipline and a constant eye on how to get to the best, most cost effective outcome. That’s why our trial attorneys are consistently ranked among the best, year after year.
