Litigation and Dispute Resolution
Our objective is to provide legal representation in advancing or defending any claim arising from litigation.
We have earned our strong reputation among judicial and governmental authorities as a result of our thorough preparation, effective presentation and principled advocacy of clients' interests. Ongoing training programs help keep our knowledge and skills current and highly developed.
Our goal is to achieve clients' objectives by a variety of means that often go significantly beyond conventional trial and appeal processes. Cases that start out in court can frequently be concluded through the use of negotiation skills that enable clients to avoid the expense, delay and uncertainty of litigation. Other matters can be kept out of court completely with the help of alternative dispute resolution techniques such as arbitration or mediation.
Our flexibility allows us to handle straightforward disputes without over-lawyering and undue formality. In matters involving complex issues we assemble a full team equal to the task to persevere until completion.
