Some matters are “bet-the-company” cases and others are less disruptive, but we focus on efficiency and informed judgment to help solve commercial disputes. We’ve developed tools and resources that give us a cost-effective edge, including training team members dedicated to electronic discovery and document review.
Commercial litigation can arise anywhere, from federal and state courts in the U.S., to courts abroad, to arbitrations and administrative proceedings that cross borders. We are experienced and comfortable wherever the dispute arises, partnering seamlessly with co-counsel when that is the prudent strategy.
We develop a creative approach to individual problems, focusing on the key legal and factual issues, and managing the various aspects of these often complex cases. We are zealous advocates prepared to go to trial when needed, keeping in mind our goal to achieve the maximum result at reasonable expense. We seek to understand the motivations and strategy of the other parties—to persuade them directly or to sway the trier of fact.
Although disputes may involve business-to-business transactions, customer and consumer claims, or disputes among business partners, we have the skills and judgment to minimize risk and advance our client’s goals in a wide array of commercial disputes.
