Practice Areas - Commercial Litigation
We understand the critical impact that litigation can have on a company's ability to conduct its routine business and meet its goals and responsibilities. Our trial lawyers provide vigorous, but efficient, representation in all facets of litigation. We accomplish this goal through prompt investigation, research, and analysis, as well as by consideration of possible litigation alternatives such as mediation and pre-litigation settlement conferences. We realize that our clients measure litigation success not only by the ultimate outcome, but also by commercial impact, both in terms of financial cost and business disruption.
We provide competent and qualified representation at all levels of litigation, including regulatory and administrative hearings, mediation, arbitration, trials, and appeals. Our attorneys are qualified and experienced in practice before state and federal courts, both in trials and appeals. The scope of our representation ranges from the simple to the complex; from individual claims to multi-party litigation to class action.
Through our extensive representation of credit unions and other financial institutions, we have attained considerable expertise in matters that are of particular importance to the financial services industry, such as defense of claims arising under state and federal consumer protection and disclosure statutes, collateral protection issues, secured party rights and remedies, and enforcement of commercial instruments and guaranty agreements.
