Businesses and institutions turn to the members of our Litigation Group for their experience in representing clients in difficult litigation.

Effective representation means more than simply learning the facts of a particular case. It also involves understanding our clients’ businesses and their broader objectives. Our litigators represent businesses of all types and sizes— from Fortune 500 companies and multi-national corporations, to small businesses, entrepreneurs, non-profits, and public entities—and across a wide variety of industries. We also represent businesses and individuals in a wide variety of insurance defense matters. 

We understand that most business disputes need business solutions, and we help our clients explore practical and creative business oriented resolutions in a cost-effective manner. We also know that businesses need lawyers who will vigorously assert their rights and defend their interests. Our litigators are experienced trial and appellate lawyers who regularly appear before state and federal courts, regulatory agencies, and arbitration panels in both routine and complex matters. 

Our Litigation Group has earned a top reputation among clients, other attorneys, and the judiciary for our common sense approach to litigation and dispute resolution, and the professional skills we employ to help our clients meet their goals.
