Commercial Disputes & Litigation

In the courtroom, we are fearless advocates for our clients. We have experience going toe-to-toe with the toughest adversaries in the most challenging jurisdictions. Our clients, which include Fortune 100 companies, financial institutions, privately held businesses, start-ups, non-profits, individuals, and government agencies, rely on us to find a solution to their most challenging problems, whether it’s resolving a dispute before the expense and disruption of litigation or winning at trial.

We put our clients’ needs first in tackling the full range of commercial disputes, including breach-of-contract claims, business torts, fraud and unfair competition claims, dealer/distributor disputes, trade-secret claims, derivative and securities claims, post-closing disputes, and lender-liability claims. Because disputes often need to be resolved quickly and effectively to keep a business relationship on course or to preserve scarce resources, we make all efforts to provide insightful early case assessment and develop appropriate exit strategies. But when a prompt resolution is not possible, we bring the same creativity, passion, and savvy to the courtroom.

Our attorneys have successfully tried more than 200 high-stakes cases to verdict in state and federal courts across the country for both plaintiffs and defendants. We have won in key appellate courts and in the United States Supreme Court. We have worked with nationally recognized mediators and dispute-resolution organizations to resolve mission-critical disputes.

Our ranks include five former Assistant U.S. Attorneys, a former prosecutor in the New York District Attorney’s Office, two former federal defenders, a former Department of Justice trial lawyer, and a host of litigators recognized by Chambers, Best Lawyers in America, Leading Lawyers, and Super Lawyers as leaders in their profession.

We understand it is critical to learn our clients’ needs and business goals on day one, and we focus on full alignment with our clients at every stage of the dispute-resolution process. The plaintiff’s bar knows that we are always prepared to go to trial — and to win.
