The most complex and hardest-fought legal cases tend to center around people, their ideas, their contracts or their workplaces. These disputes frequently involve the movement of talent between competitors, workplace claims, the ownership of intellectual property, false and deceptive marketing practices, the rights and responsibilities of the parties to corporate transactions and controversies over commercial leasing. Our litigation and disputes attorneys handle matters in all of these areas. We assess risk, secure favorable resolutions, and forcefully pursue our clients’ interests through trial and appeals. Our clients include major players in the marketing communications, e-commerce, financial services, hospitality and commercial leasing sectors. We also represent prominent advertisers, agencies and their brands.
The sheer volume of cases we encounter gives us unique insight into likely scenarios and how they might play out. Such insight has proved especially effective when disputes arise out of advertising, restrictive covenants, mergers and acquisitions and real estate leases, as well as when opposing consumer class actions. Our litigators are in high demand nationwide, and clients in every state rely on us to facilitate resolutions and, when necessary, aggressively represent them in court.
The firm, as a whole, brings vast knowledge of the industries we serve and the legal and business issues they face. This experience often informs our litigation approach and provides a unique, holistic view that leads to creative and effective litigation strategies.
Keeping Things in Proportion
We believe in “proportional” litigation, in which the associated costs — of staffing, discovery, research and motion practice — are calibrated both to the amount at stake and to obtaining our clients’ objectives cost-effectively. We develop and implement litigation strategies with an eye toward performance efficiencies and return on investment.
