Protecting Your Interests In Business Litigation
Legal disputes inevitably arise in the course of business operations.

The Advantages Of Our Firm
As a small firm, we are efficient and “lean.” As alums of big firm litigation practice, our lawyers are also knowledgeable and skilled in litigating complex and “bet-the-company” cases. We recognize and understand that litigation is a means to an end rather than an end in itself, and that pursuing a business objective in a litigation is a costly and time-consuming (and sometimes, maddening) undertaking. We get it. We understand that our business clients’ objectives are always the resolution of business disputes in a business-like way, However, when circumstances dictate otherwise, we are prepared to go the distance in those matters that require judicial intervention.
We believe that a successful litigation outcome depends on a carefully crafted strategy formulated based on the client’s goals and risks, and a thorough understanding of the area of law, remedies and potential outcomes. Our task as your lawyers in litigation is to protect your interests, taking into account risk and potential exposure. We work with you to assess and manage risk, to jointly develop a plan and strategy to proceed with and conduct the litigation, and to do so with a careful eye on costs. In short, we strive to be strategic thinkers and skilled advocates, working toward a prompt and cost-effective resolution.
Alternative Dispute Resolution And Appeals
In addition to our litigation expertise and experience, we help clients resolve disputes using alternate dispute resolution (ADR) in all of its variations – arbitration, mediation, private judging, and construction DRBs (dispute resolution boards). These methods can mitigate the costs and risks of full-scale litigation.
When the litigation process does produce an acceptable result for one party, the other may appeal. We are experienced in pursuing and defending appeals and handling all aspects of the appellate process.
