Our Services

At RSHC we understand that clients need results, experience, and sound judgment. Our lawyers have developed reputational excellence for all of those traits. We serve as strategic advisors, counselors, and advocates for our clients in the courtroom, boardroom, and everywhere in between.  

We have a national litigation practice with trial lawyers that have tried over 200 cases. Our business transactions lawyers are an experienced team of corporate, real estate, and finance attorneys who have negotiated and closed hundreds of transactions.

Our areas of significant experience include (in alphabetical order):

Aerospace & Aviation

Few industries have been at the center of the most important issues of our time as the aerospace industry. RSHC has a dedicated team of recognized leaders in the field who have successfully represented manufacturers of commercial airliners and general aviation aircraft, space vehicles, and aircraft component, electric aircraft and drones, aircraft maintenance companies, airlines, airports, airport concession operators, and ground handling companies in a variety of matters across the United States and internationally, in Canada, Asia, South America, Central America, and Europe.

Animal Law

We are the only major commercial litigation firm in the country with a practice group focused solely on animal welfare and animal protection. And we handle every aspect of animal law — litigation, legislation, and consultation — for clients ranging from individual pet owners to the world’s largest animal protection organization. We also provide full-service support to animal welfare groups, including shelters, sanctuaries, and nonprofit advocates. Learn More : Animal Law

Antitrust & Competition

For decades, our antitrust team has successfully guided clients even as theories have evolved to reflect new technologies, lines of business, and economic approaches. Evolving economic theories of liability involving two-sided markets, “dirty tricks” as antitrust violations, no-poaching agreements, and “disintermediation” in the health care setting are just a few examples of the recent trends in the federal antitrust arena, and as state and federal agencies and private litigants have changed emphasis and tactics, our defense team has remained at the cutting edge.

Appellate Practice

RSHC’s appellate practice runs the gamut from appeals following final judgment, to interlocutory appeals of class certification rulings or decisions on controlling questions of law, to certification of questions to state supreme courts and writs of mandamus. We have experience in forums across the country, both in cases where we represented a party in the lower court and in cases where we were brought in as appellate counsel.
