Our litigation practice group has represented Fortune 500 companies, national and regional financial institutions, and private companies of all sizes in high-stakes commercial litigation, arbitration and mediation. We pride ourselves on our knowledge of our clients’ businesses and we work hard to avoid disputes in the first place. If litigation cannot be avoided, we strive to eliminate unnecessary fees and costs while always providing “big firm” quality representation and experience with a personal touch. Other firms with similarly experienced attorneys typically charge more per hour and spend more per case than we do.
Clients praise us for our tenacity, our knowledge and experience, and our strategic overall approach. In our most successful cases, we work as a team with the client to achieve the desired result. Our clients typically feel like they understand and can have a positive influence on the development of their cases if they desire that level of involvement.
We have handled a considerable amount of litigation within the cannabis and hemp industries, including playing a significant role defending against frivolous civil RICO suits filed in federal court against industry participants following state laws in good faith. We regularly litigate matters involving the dissolution or restructuring businesses, including claims for breach of fiduciary duty and conversion. We litigate cases involving other business torts such as intentional interference with economic relations and defamation. We also litigate employment matters, as well as matters implicating intellectual property of all types.
We have litigated in state and federal courts in a number of jurisdictions, both at trial and appellate level, and we have a great deal of experience assisting clients through arbitration, mediation and judicial settlement conferences.
