General Business & Complex Commercial Litigation

Our General Business & Complex Commercial Litigation attorneys have deep experience managing large complex cases, assessing and developing viable themes and strategies, reaching efficient resolutions, and persuasively arguing cases in the courtroom. Our attorneys are recognized by Best Lawyers, the American College of Trial Lawyers, Super Lawyers, Chambers, and numerous bar associations for our outcomes in state and federal cases around the nation. Our experience litigating cases before judges and juries helps us navigate desired outcomes for our clients, whether it be at trial or in settlement. 

We are aggressive, effective advocates for our litigation clients. When trial is not the goal, our attorneys also have extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation, arbitration and other techniques. 

We routinely combine experienced trial attorneys with lawyers in other practice areas, support staff familiar with the latest case management techniques and technologies, and attorneys focused on complex motion practice and appellate advocacy to provide thorough analysis and presentation of the issues.  

We work with every client to assess business issues as well as practical solutions in formulating a strategy at the outset of a case. That roadmap helps us determine an overall approach to the litigation — from which motions to file to what positions to take on various issues, to how to effectively present the case to a judge or jury.

  • Antitrust
  • Business torts
  • Construction
  • Consumer class actions
  • Franchise
  • Fraud
  • Governmental and administrative disputes
  • Health care litigation
