Commercial Litigation

Our litigators have represented individuals, financial institutions, and companies in connection with claims for fraud, misrepresentation, deceptive trade practices, tortious interference with contractual (and prospective business) relations, and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).  Our attorneys have defended and prosecuted such claims successfully on behalf of clients in both federal and state courts throughout the country.  These cases have involved significant damages claims, and covered numerous sectors, industries, and financial transactions.

These types of claims often, if not always, involve tremendous reputational risk and can threaten the financial viability of the parties involved.  Our litigators are sensitive to the potential consequences and have the experience to narrow the factual and legal issues involved through aggressive factual development and motion practice. We do not lose sight of the ultimate goal —to achieve the most favorable result as efficiently, and in the most cost effective manner, as possible.  Although we work hard to position these difficult cases favorably for settlement, our litigators have also successfully tried such cases, and defended the results, on appeal.
