Complex Civil Litigation
We handle complex civil matters in federal and state courts.
Our civil experience is broad and encompasses most types of sophisticated litigation. Cases our lawyers have handled have included antitrust, consumer fraud, breach of contract, accounting, securities fraud, shareholder and investor rights, bankruptcy, class actions, insurance, mergers and acquisitions, business torts, executive compensation, partnership disputes, oil and gas, telecommunications, commodities, civil rights, real estate, lender liability, product liability, toxic torts, defamation, trade secrets, patent, trademark, copyright, professional liability, RICO, and most other significant commercial issues.
We represent both plaintiffs and defendants. On the plaintiffs' side, we have had wins valued at more than $2 billion in the past three years.
In addition to handling disputes between private parties, we have experience in representing private plaintiffs in challenging laws or government regulations.
We handle matters from the time of the filing of a complaint through a verdict. However, our lawyers also have been retained as co-counsel or substitute counsel well into a matter where a client has come to realize that additional or different representation is needed.
We have extensive experience in working with jury consultants to help test themes and develop issues. We use the latest case management technology and trial presentation tools to distill complex information and communicate clearly — whether to a judge, a jury, or the opposing side as they consider whether to settle on our terms.
