We Take Pride in Our Clients’ Business

In order to best represent clients and know their needs and objectives, we have learned to value our clients' business and their goals. The best way to ensure a positive result in complex business litigation is to work closely with our clients and gain an understanding not only of their case but of their industry and their specific business. Litigation by definition is an adversarial process and stressful. Likewise, there is risk inherent in every lawsuit. Aside from being well-trained litigators, we are always mindful of the value-added in providing counseling to our clients and helping them navigate the court system and their individual cases. We are proud of the many long-standing clients we continue to represent. We seek to establish long-term relationships with the new clients we have the privilege of representing. Building relationships with our clients helps not only our clients but helps us to better handle the challenges being faced by our clients. Some of the many industries in which we serve our clients include:

  • Agriculture
  • Architecture
  • Aviation
  • Banking
  • Engineering
  • Finance
  • Government
  • Infrastructure
  • Manufacturing
  • Media
  • Medical
  • Real Estate
  • Utilities

Our Approach

Our single goal is to achieve the best result possible for our client in the most cost-effective manner. In order to achieve our goal, we maximize the use of the many attorneys within our division and pair the client with the best lawyer capable of handling their case. When required, we work as a team to achieve the desired result. 

Since we are always mindful of the cost of litigation to our clients, we look for innovative and advantageous ways to resolve cases. Settlement options are explored and if beneficial to our clients are pursued; however, if resolutions short of a trial are not advantageous we handle the case all the way through trial and appeals if necessary. We handle cases directly but have also enjoyed the pleasure of working with out of state attorneys to assist them as local counsel for their clients. Likewise, when necessary, we use other attorneys within our firm to provide guidance in specific areas of the law where their knowledge of the law benefits the client in the litigation.

Experience

Our attorneys have a wide range of experience, with some having 25 years or more “in the trenches.” Over the years, many of our attorneys have been recognized for their successes as business litigators. We rely on this experience for deciding the best course of action for each client and work closely with the client to achieve success.
