Overview

We protect clients ranging from local entrepreneurs to Fortune 500 companies in disputes involving a broad spectrum of issues. Wherever possible, we represent them before formal proceedings start.
We routinely appear before federal and state courts throughout the United States, as well as in a variety of non-judicial forums, including national and international arbitration. Because of our expertise and strong track record, clients frequently turn to us to pursue cases that other firms handled previously, including appeals.
We employ all effective means to resolve disputes efficiently, favorably and cost-effectively. Through experience, we have found that an aggressive and proactive approach to dispute resolution, coupled with close coordination with our clients, produces the best results: early dismissals, favorable settlements, and winning verdicts and awards. Our lawyers have deep experience taking cases to trial and we have the conviction to do so when required.
At all times, we strive for efficiency in staffing and strategy. We use paralegals and support staff where appropriate and incorporate technological advances in dispute management and legal research. We are experienced in working with and directing staff attorney review of discovery materials.
