"Litigation is the pursuit of practical ends, not a game of chess." Felix Frankfurter
Litigation is a tool utilized to attain a business objective. Sometimes the objective is to position a negotiation, where in other instances it is used to suppress a competitor or create such potential uncertainty or delay that a proposed transaction’s risk outweighs its benefit. For decades, we have advanced and defended strategic business litigation to achieve business ends, in state and federal courts throughout the United States, as well as in arbitrations and mediations.
We have represented the full spectrum of clients, from governmental entities to closely held business to financial institutions and multi-national corporations, in matters involving complex projects, construction, lending, fiduciary duties, theft of intellection property, professional malpractice, securities & investment fraud, health care, insurance and other business issues.
