We represent clients in all aspects of litigation, including trials and appeals in state and federal courts, administrative proceedings, arbitrations and mediations. Our litigation team is recognized for our high-quality work product, our track record for resolving disputes quickly, and our willingness and ability to take cases to trial when necessary. For each upcoming trial, we assemble an independent panel of two to three of the firm’s most experienced trial and appellate lawyers to assist the trial team in preparing for trial. We do this at no cost to the client.

Our litigators have kept pace as the legal services market has evolved – we continually look to the developments and technologies that will help us more efficiently handle litigation for our clients. Wherever possible, we leverage outside vendors, subject matter experts and technology solutions to take a managed services approach to litigation.

We look carefully at the different stages of litigation and build lean, strategic teams that include the individual attorneys and other professionals best-suited to handle the particular matter and task at hand.
We take pride in both the quality of our work and in our client service ethic. Our attorneys strive to be highly responsive and listen carefully to our clients’ priorities and business challenges as they develop case strategies and represent clients in litigation.
