Commercial Litigation

We are trial-tested litigators who take a client-centered approach to resolve complex business disputes.  We understand the impact litigation has on a business and avoid the typical approach to litigation in favor of creative solutions and strategies to help our clients quickly meet their business needs. In order to create these opportunities, we leverage our experience as trial lawyers and former federal prosecutors to the benefit of our clients.     

First, we bring effective and vigorous advocacy skills to every business dispute our clients face. From the inception of a dispute, even before litigation arises, through resolution of the matter, we move quickly to help individuals and institutions alike limit their exposure as early as possible, before all of the evidence is collected, and parties have dug into their positions. Through experience, we understand timing matters.  

Our partners have experience advising some of the world’s largest corporations and their executives and directors through their most difficult commercial business disputes. We work closely with our clients in every matter to meet their particular needs—whether that means risk mitigation, a cost-effective resolution to a dispute, or, when the need arises, an outcome that can only be achieved through litigation. Our singular focus is to achieve our clients’ objectives.

In achieving these goals for our clients, we leverage our significant experience as first-chair trial attorneys and lead negotiators. As former federal prosecutors and veterans of Big Law litigation departments, we bring decades of hard-nosed litigation and trial experience to bear on the matters we litigate.  We are skilled at distilling complex information and clearly communicating the facts that matter to our clients—whether to persuade a judge or jury in court or to convince opposing counsel to settle on our terms. Where other lawyers pound their fists, we make winning arguments. We honed these skills through decades of experience making winning arguments in the courtroom in federal, state, and arbitral proceedings.

In addition to commercial litigation matters, we have subject matter expertise in securities and health care litigation. In the securities arena, we represent private litigants in matters involving investments and investment vehicles, including hedge funds and other private pooled money vehicles, shareholder claims, breach of fiduciary duty claims, and claims brought by SEC, CFTC, and state court-appointed receivers. In the health care arena, we frequently represent physicians in disputes involving their practice groups and the hospitals and facilities with which they have privileges or are otherwise associated.
