Commercial Litigation

We believe that good legal representation can help avoid business disputes. When necessary, however, our experienced trial attorneys can represent a range of clients, from a small, family-owned business or farm to a multinational corporation, in all types of litigation. Our team approach, supported by a highly qualified staff, allows us to handle the simplest to the most complex case in an efficient and cost effective manner.

We also employ a commonsense and creative approach to problem solving, using negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and litigation as appropriate.

Our litigation practice includes the following areas of concentration:

Contract Disputes

We assist with disputes relating to all types of contracts and agreements, whether oral or written.

Entity Disputes

We represent individuals and businesses in disputes among partners and shareholders, or in claims against officers and directors.

Employment Claims

We defend employers against any wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, family and medical leave, overtime, or other employee claim.

Construction Claims

We are experienced in issues that arise out of the construction and development of projects, both large and small.

Business Torts

We are experienced in the full range of claims that can be made, including intentional interference with contract, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, and unfair competition.

Insurance Coverage

We are experienced in matters relating to insurance contracts and coverage disputes.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

When appropriate, we encourage clients to consider alternatives to litigation, such as mediation or arbitration. Not only do we regularly represent clients in these types of proceedings, but also members of our firm actually serve as mediators, evaluators, or arbitrators to assist others in resolving their disputes.
