Business and Commercial Litigation

Our litigators believe that every case is unique. Your dispute demands and deserves special attention and an analysis unique to the situation. This requires the strength and experience we have developed during the 70 plus years our firm has practiced in federal and state courts, as well as before administrative agencies. We proudly continue our tradition of successfully litigating all types of commercial litigation—from complex corporate multi-party cases to individuals’ smaller but equally important disputes.

Our Litigation Department is experienced in almost all substantive areas of practice that may proceed to trial or arbitration, including:

  • Bad-faith breach of insurance contracts
  • Bankruptcy and receiverships
  • Breach of contract or warranty
  • Class actions
  • Constitutional issues
  • Construction
  • Director liability
  • Employment
  • Environmental
  • Health care and health care fraud
  • Insurance defense and coverage
  • Intellectual property (patent, trademark, and copyright)
  • Landlord and tenant
  • Lender liability
  • Oil, gas, and other natural resources
  • Partnership or shareholder disputes
  • Product liability
  • Professional liability
  • Real estate
  • Recovery of property and money owed
  • Securities
  • Tax
  • Unfair competition and trade secrets
  • Water rights and water quality
  • Whistleblower

Although we are willing and able to represent you zealously through trial and appeal, we recognize that doing so is but one means of solving your problem. We often represent clients in alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediations and arbitrations, which can be more cost effective. We will work closely with you to balance our representation with the economic realities of your unique dispute. At all stages of litigation—from when a dispute commences through trial and appeal—we work with you to develop and meet your goals as favorably and efficiently as possible.
