Of the many challenges and obstacles faced by businesses working to succeed in an increasingly competitive environment, litigation is often the most frustrating. Whether we are defending against a lawsuit brought against our client, or bringing a lawsuit to assert and protect our client’s rights, we know that litigation has to be seen in the context of our client’s broader business objectives.
Our knowledge of the substantive law is both deep and wide, with specialties including trade secrets, employee movement, employment, business contracts, unfair competition, fraud, securities, professional liability, privacy, unfair competition, false advertising, defamation, insurance coverage, copyright and trademark, and real estate. Our litigators have numerous trial and arbitration wins for clients in a broad range of industries, including high-tech, finance, entertainment, aerospace, defense contracting, commercial security, and consulting.
Trial wins and favorable settlements don’t arise out of thin air. They are the result of preparation, strategy and tenacity. We achieve excellent results by doing the hard work and creative thinking early on, and therefore knowing before our opponents do what will ultimately matter in litigation.
Our lawyers also have a long track record of obtaining dismissal of claims before trial–winning motions for dismissal, demurrers and motions for summary judgment. This reputation, coupled with our willingness to take cases to trial, means we are able to extract better settlement terms and better, business-oriented results in difficult cases.
