Business & Commercial Litigation

A Versatile, Resourceful Business Law Firm

The mere possibility of having to take a dispute to court makes many business owners and stakeholders recoil from a vision of valuable time lost and costs spiraling out of control. In a time of intense economic turmoil and upheaval, when every financial move can be pivotal, decisions on whether and how to pursue your interests are more challenging than ever before.

These factors make your choice of a law firm to advise and represent you especially critical. The process must start with exploration of critical questions:

  • Are there funds or assets available — even if bankruptcy is part of the equation?
  • Are you on solid legal ground?
  • Are there practical alternatives to a lawsuit for reaching favorable resolution and keeping your dispute out of the media and public eye?
