Litigation & Disputes

A keen understanding of our clients’ business objectives defines our approach to litigation and disputes. We represent individuals and businesses in trial and appellate courts nationwide. We take a business-like approach to help clients successfully compete and advance their business and personal interests while avoiding regulatory actions or litigation.

Overarching Philosophy

Most important, we counsel clients before controversies occur, to provide the foresight and planning that may obviate disputes or strengthen clients’ positions if legal action becomes necessary. Following the philosophy of one of our founders, Phil C. Neal, we believe that candid advice and a true understanding of our clients’ businesses, combined with an unwavering commitment to legal excellence, will drive success, which we always measure through meeting our clients’ goals.

Our Trial Team

We are proud of our well-earned reputation as lawyers who try cases. Clients entrust our trial attorneys in virtually every industry and virtually every area of law. Whether it is a class action, a multidistrict proceeding, or a single-party action, our clients rely on us to formulate a strategy to achieve their goals. In addition, we regularly resolve regulatory, quasi-criminal, and white-collar matters.

Litigation and Arbitration

Whenever legal conflict cannot be avoided, our high-powered litigation attorneys mount an aggressive defense to effectively resolve disputes and achieve our clients’ overall goals. In practical terms, we partner with our clients from day one to formulate an action plan that defines a litigation strategy based on each client’s individual needs.

In addition to our trial strengths, we also have strong proficiencies in successfully litigating commercial and consumer fraud cases, ERISA matters, trust and estates disputes, insurance coverage issues, finance and banking, technology and First Amendment cases. Our industry strengths include finance, health care, hospitality and leisure, manufacturing, and technology, to name a few. Fiercely protective of our clients’ interests, we represent businesses and individual stakeholders in complex, high-stakes litigation in state and federal courts throughout the United States.

Our litigators are also skilled in managing all forms of alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration, and represent clients before administrative agencies and tribunals.
