Serious Resolve

Our Commercial Litigation lawyers know what is at stake in the cases that we handle. We know that our clients’ ability to do business is on the line: from ‘Bet the Company' litigation all the way down to getting rid of nuisance lawsuits – we know these are distractions that keep you from focusing on your core business.  That is why we make resolving disputes our core business.

We have 30+ Commercial Litigation lawyers that have a track record of solving the most difficult disputes.  In the last 25 years we have resolved 97%+ of the cases we have opened without need for a trial.  But be assured, if a case cannot be resolved we have the experience and know how to take it to trial:  we have done it 2,067 times.  Our lawyers are comfortable in the Courtroom and before administrative tribunals, and arbitration panels, and that experience allows us to negotiate resolutions effectively and early with a keen eye on the legal and economic realities that affect all disputes.

Our Commercial Litigation practice is complemented by the expertise of lawyers in all our practice areas, and they are called upon regularly for specialized input on issues that arise in complex litigation.
