Our firm has experience representing diverse businesses in a wide-range of commercial disputes in both state and federal courts throughout the country.
Our firm has represented and continues to represent clients proudly considered "mom and pop" businesses; clients that have grown to become small to medium sized businesses; and large corporate clients commanding a national and international presence. Whether an office next door or across the world, our clients receive exceptional representation in effectively resolving their disputes in the most efficient and productive manner.
Types of Disputes
Our clients benefit from the developed experience our firm has acquired in handling simple and complex commercial disputes that involve any number of claims such as breach of contract, trade libel and commercial disparagement, misappropriation of trade secrets, copyright and trademark infringement, violation of non-compete and non-disclosure agreements, deceptive trade practices, and more. Whether common law, state law, federal law, or a combination thereof, our firm utilizes any number of claims to pursue our client's rights and remedies.
Form of Remedies
Our clients benefit from the knowledge and familiarity our firm has obtained through the use of varied remedies seeking immediate cessation of wrongful conduct (injunctive relief including temporary restraining orders as well as preliminary and permanent injunctions); seeking the performance of certain conduct; seeking monetary damages compensating our clients for their economic losses (compensatory damages), monetary damages awarded in addition to compensatory damages seeking to punish the opposing parties (punitive damages), and monetary damages provided for by statute (statutory damages); seeking the return of our clients' property (replevin actions), and, where provided for by law, the attorney's fees and costs our clients expend.
"The expense of litigation should not be coveted." While seemingly straightforward, our firm invests the time with each client to privately explore the most effective and productive means of obtaining the desired end. Our clients can be assurred that we will recommend litigation only where strategically viable to our client. Indeed, at times, we may recommend alternatives to resolving the dispute through litigation (ADR). Other times, we may recommend an immediate litigation attack involving multiple fronts. Each client, each dispute, and each opposing party will differ. Consequently, a customized strategy will be implemented to our client's ultimate benefit - both in terms of expense and outcome.
