The firm’s business restructuring partners have been recognized as leaders in their field by numerous peer-review publications. Whilst its restructuring team is focused on its clients’ business-oriented solutions, sometimes a firmer hand is required to protect valuable interests.

In business restructuring and liquidation, the team’s agility and frequent collaboration with its dispute resolution team’s extensive capabilities often makes a significant, bottomline difference in efficiency and results.
The dispute resolution attorneys at Agentis are experienced in high-caliber advocacy in complex, high-stakes disputes — both in state and federal courts and in varied arbitration forums. That solid reputation and proven ability is why so many businesses of all stripes rely on the firm’s dispute resolution practice lawyers for their most critical matters. The firm prides itself on its deliberative, aggressive, creative, and effective representation. That approach — and its reputation — helps it to frequently reach favorable settlements with opposing counsel who’d rather negotiate than face the firm in court.

It has successfully counseled, litigated, arbitrated, tried, or settled cases involving breach of contract, fraud, negligence, trade secret theft, tortious interference, RICO, breach of fiduciary duties, copyright and trademark infringement, creative license disputes, commercial foreclosures and evictions, and more.
