Consistent with our philosophy of preventative lawyering, we would prefer to keep you out of a lawsuit. Litigation is time-consuming, expensive, frustrating, and takes your time and attention away from your business. The process of litigation routinely takes three to five years, and sometimes longer. But going to court sometimes is necessary, even unavoidable. People who have lived through a lawsuit, even if they emerge victorious, often feel less than positive about the experience. We are here to guide you through the process, making it as efficient, effective, positive and successful as possible.
Are you being sued or thinking about suing someone?
Before you become involved in a lawsuit, we review all of the facts and circumstances surrounding your case, analyze the relevant law, determine the strengths and weaknesses of your position and your opponent’s position, and develop a thoughtful and effective litigation strategy.
We also help you consider the practical aspects of the prospective litigation. Are you throwing good money after bad, prospectively spending more in attorneys’ fees and costs than you will ever be able to recover? Does it make sense to seek an alternative dispute resolution process rather than go to court? Is it more advisable to attempt to reach a compromise than to engage in an adversarial process?
When pursuing litigation is in your best interests, then we aggressively, thoroughly, thoughtfully and efficiently represent your interests in court. Although many cases ultimately do not go to trial, from the beginning, we approach each case as if it will go to trial. We know from our 30+ years of experience that, if a settlement favorable to your interests is possible, it will more likely be obtained if the opposition knows that we are completely prepared to see your case through to the end.
We have experience representing clients in a wide range of litigation matters including:
- Corporate and partnership disputes
- Contract and commercial transaction disputes
- Fraud and misrepresentation cases
- Breach of contract cases
- Breach of fiduciary duties cases
- Breach of non-compete and confidentiality agreements disputes
