We help clients minimize legal spend when they need to start or defend litigation.
While we are zealous advocates in the courtroom, we never pursue litigation as an end in itself. Using a client-centric approach, our lawyers craft practical, cost-effective strategies to achieve your business objectives—whether you seek a quick and quiet settlement or a high profile, bet-the-company win.And because cost is a critical consideration, we work closely with clients to devise fee arrangements that align our interests and provide greater price predictability.

Sometimes, an employment relationship goes south. If you have a claim against or from an employee (or former employee), we can help you evaluate your options. This may mean bringing a counterclaim against an employee, or bringing the initial claim against the former employee if they violated an employment agreement. Our team can help you determine the best litigation strategy to obtain your business objectives.
Business Dispute & Contract Dispute Litigation
Sometimes, your relationship with your suppliers, vendors, or service providers will not end in the manner originally contemplated. If you have a contract dispute or other business litigation, we can help you bring a claim against the non-performing party. Additionally, if you are accused of violating a contract, we can help defend you against these claims.
International Litigation and Arbitration
When you have a dispute with an overseas supplier, vendor, or customer, sometimes litigation or arbitration is the ideal solution. In this case, we can help guide you through the international arbitration or litigation process, help you assess the benefits of litigation, and if necessary, we can help you vet potential law firms to represent you should the action be required to be brought in a foreign jurisdiction.
