Litigation and Dispute Resolution
Our Litigation and Dispute Resolution practice is tailored to provide our clients with a top quality, but cost-effective means of resolving the range of disputes that arise in the highly competitive business environment. Recognizing that not all disputes need to be litigated, we encourage early claim evaluation to assist our clients to identify cases which can be satisfactorily resolved through negotiation or other alternative dispute resolution (e.g. mediation, arbitration, etc.). When litigation is necessary, we pursue a client-centered, trial-focused strategy. We fully inform our clients throughout the process about the legal and strategic aspects of the case to enable meaningful participation in cost-saving decisions without compromising success. We also provide our clients the important leverage that comes from being able to create and exploit opportunities for successful resolution at each stage of the litigation process, while simultaneously being prepared to take each case through trial if necessary.

Our litigation and dispute resolution experience covers most aspects of business litigation, including these areas of law:
  • Complex commercial/contract;
  • Intellectual property/trade secret;
  • Unfair competition/false advertising;
  • Employment;
  • Securities;
