Our practice includes many experienced trial lawyers with substantive understanding of business transactions, operations and priorities. We handle cases ranging from complex civil claims to class actions and white-collar criminal matters in courts across the country, as well as international arbitrations.
Our litigation strategy in each matter is built around achieving our client’s objectives, which we understand may be driven by broader business priorities and relationships.
We handle disputes as varied and complex as today’s business world, and our size and breadth benefit clients in virtually every kind of commercial dispute. We have a long history of defending clients against mass and toxic tort claims, litigating every type of real estate case including eminent domain cases, and representing developers and property owners, landlords and tenants in real estate litigation.
We represent major financial institutions and business clients of all kinds in matters ranging from insurance disputes and class actions; disputes between competitors, such as trade secret misappropriation, unfair competition, antitrust and trade practices matters; and disputes between our clients and their suppliers, vendors and customers.
We have a long history of helping clients navigate the complex legal issues accompanying mass and toxic tort claims. But handling mass and toxic tort trials, appeals and claim resolution is just a part of what we do. We also offer preventive counseling for our clients, with the goal of avoiding lawsuits. We review regulatory and compliance issues and conduct audits to help clients identify and correct potential problems – before they occur. We have extensive experience in organizing, preparing and executing all aspects of mass and toxic tort defense, including discovery, pretrial proceedings and trial. We have access to world-renowned experts in fields including environmental consulting, epidemiology, industrial hygiene, oncology, rheumatology, internal medicine, pathology, bacteriology and toxicology. Our group includes lawyers who are members of the American College of Trial Lawyers, the International Association of Defense Counsel, the Defense Research Institute, the International Society of Barristers, the Network of Trial Law Firms, the Federation of Defense & Corporate Counsel, The Force and the United States Law Firm Group.
We have litigated every imaginable kind of real estate case, from eminent domain cases to breach of representation/warranty cases, to zoning and building code violation cases. On the subject of eminent domain litigation, we regularly counsel clients through the series of public hearings, private negotiations and mandatory filings involved in such litigation. When litigation actually ensues, we have significant experience resolving the most contentious and high-stakes cases in the courtroom, or by settlement.
We represent property owners and developers as well as landlords and tenants in all kinds of lease disputes and other types of real estate litigation.

The disputes involve such issues as fee and tax calculations, continuous operations clauses, exclusivity provisions, relocation clauses, termination agreements, premises liability and security matters.
