Litigation may be seen as either a necessary means to put an end to a dispute or as a threat to the ability to achieve personal or business objectives, depending on a client’s point of view.
The attorneys in Phillips Lytle’s Litigation Practice know that, when litigation happens, our clients’ primary concern is often finding a way to bring that litigation to a satisfactory conclusion as effectively, efficiently and creatively as possible. All of our litigators are skilled and zealous advocates who have chosen to dedicate their careers to achieving those objectives on behalf of our clients.
Our clients include organizations and businesses of all sizes. We represent financial services clients that range in size from local savings and loans to some of the largest banks in the world. We represent clients who make products that are in our homes and touch our daily lives, as well as clients that manufacture the largest and most sophisticated types of industrial machinery and equipment. We represent clients that range in size from small “mom and pop” businesses to a Fortune 100 life sciences company that has designated us as a member of an elite national law firm network. And, regardless of the size of our clients, our litigators work closely with each of them to learn about their business and their specific goals in each case that we take on, so that we can design specific strategies to achieve those goals.
Each day, our litigators prosecute and defend our clients’ rights in administrative hearings and trials, arbitrations and mediations, state and federal hearings and trials in courts across the nation, and at oral arguments in both state and federal appellate courts.
Our proven track record of success in all of these forums includes obtaining verdicts and judgments in our clients’ favor in all manner of business, commercial, personal injury and property-related disputes. Along the way, the members of our Litigation Practice have also helped shape the law of our state and other forums, obtaining widely known and ground-breaking decisions that will continue to reverberate for many years to come.
That’s how our litigators approach the needs of each of our clients. We actively listen to, engage with and learn about each client’s key business or personal objectives when litigation arises and help our clients craft litigation strategies that are best suited to achieve their desired outcome. Those strategies draw upon our in-depth understanding of the industries in which our clients or their opponents do business, as well as our knowledge of the applicable legal and regulatory issues particular to those industries.
Planning a litigation strategy is one thing, executing on it is another. Our litigators know how to go from plan to result as efficiently and expediently as possible. We draw upon our diverse pool of talented litigators to form lean, case-specific teams with the specific experience and expertise required in each case. Then we work tirelessly, hand-in-hand with our clients, to protect their rights and interests while minimizing the disruption to their businesses or personal lives.
Some firms work smart, some work hard―we do both. We know how to leverage technology to manage the complexities of litigation, while helping our clients contain costs. We also know how to roll up our sleeves and draw on our impressive bench strength when the case requires it. But most of all, we know how to tell our clients’ stories compellingly, persuasively and successfully―our results and reputation attest to our ability to do so.
