Our work in commercial disputes is informed by our extensive trial and appellate experience and a keen understanding of each client’s business imperatives.
Clients value our representation in a variety of matters relating to breaches of contract or fiduciary duty, business torts and tortious contract interference, and state and federal statutory law. Our civil litigation work includes deep experience in consumer class actions, M&A-related litigation, international arbitration, mass torts and products liability, and professional liability.
In working with clients to resolve these matters, we recognize that all aspects of a client’s business – including the business model, financial condition, workforce and employee concerns, regulatory issues, investor considerations and reputation – are important in determining the most effective legal strategy.
