LITIGATION

Litigation never exists in a vacuum. So we approach your case with a keen understanding of your objectives and develop a thoughtful, creative strategy appropriate to your business goals. And when we go to trial, we go to win.

We Know Courthouses. Lots of Them.

U.S. News & World Report consistently names us as having a “Tier 1” litigation practice. How have we achieved that nationwide status? By winning cases, of course. By the significant size and complexity of many of those cases. By the sheer number of top-flight litigators on board (we have more than 150). And perhaps most importantly, by managing every case in a way that makes the best business sense for you, our client.

When it Comes to Litigation, We’ve Got You Covered.

Our litigators handle disputes across a broad range of industries and business components, from energy to healthcare, from manufacturing to financial services, from employment to intellectual property, from business combinations to business finance, and many more. We can handle your highest-profile, most complex litigation, as well as the routine disputes most businesses occasionally encounter. When it’s in your best interest, we can negotiate a settlement and avoid trial, utilize arbitration and mediation, or go to the courthouse.

And go to trial we do. One distinguishing feature of our litigators is that they do indeed try cases. Many firms that say they are trial lawyers rarely set foot in a courtroom. While we are often able to have claims against our clients dismissed or settled on favorable terms, when those outcomes are not possible or even the best options, we readily proceed to trial.

In the courtroom, our experience makes a world of difference. Our veteran litigators have spent decades trying complex cases in court. We are known internationally, nationally, regionally and locally for the successes we have achieved handling high-stakes and bet-the-company cases, ground-breaking class actions, multi-district litigation, mass tort and other sophisticated litigation in federal and state trial and appellate courts and before administrative agencies and arbitration panels. They bring this experience to the following types of matters and many more: 

But your success in litigation is not only about what happens in the courtroom. Our trial attorneys also bring innovative legal strategies and industry insight to each dispute. These strategies include cutting-edge litigation support technologies, e-discovery solutions, early case assessment and case management techniques. 

No Stranger to Accolades
