We have represented clients in controversies involving contracts, securities, banking, finance, real estate, lender liability, antitrust, energy, international law, creditors’ rights, negligence, and business torts. We have successfully represented clients in state, federal, and appellate proceedings. We have significant experience with alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration and mediation.

Business Torts

As the business world becomes increasingly complex, the day-to-day legal issues also increase in complexity. In addition to traditional breach of contract claims, business litigation frequently includes statutory and tort claims such as fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, negligent misrepresentation, tortious interference, unfair competition, and deceptive trade practices. We have prosecuted and defended business-related litigation for clients in a variety of industries and occupations.

Administrative Proceedings and Alternative Dispute Resolution

We have handled claims pursued in alternative forums, including administrative proceedings before state and federal agencies, mediation, arbitration, and private trials. Our depth of experience in alternative forums allows us great flexibility in achieving our clients’ objectives. Our goal is to give our clients the benefit of experienced representation and individualized attention to insure efficiency and outcomes that serve our clients’ interests.

Securities and Corporate Governance

Internal investigations and disputes involving officers, directors, shareholders, and investors have skyrocketed in recent years. We have experience in seeking redress for corporate mismanagement and in defending corporations and individuals from mismanagement claims. We regularly combine our litigation and corporate expertise to find workable solutions for internal disputes including arbitration, negotiated agreements, stock sales, executive compensation, and termination agreements.

Representative Matters

Manufacturing, construction, technology, financial, energy, and food service are just a few of the industries we have represented with respect to their litigation needs.
