Litigation

Our litigation team is different from other law firms because we directly involve our most experienced litigators in every case, and we focus our practice on three areas: state and local government, labor and employment, and business litigation.

From construction matters to contract disputes, from civil rights cases to land use litigation, our litigators handle complex cases that frequently generate substantial public interest for state and local governments.

Our labor and employment attorneys exclusively represent employers in discrimination cases, unfair labor practice charges, arbitrations, and collective bargaining.

Our litigators handle breach of contract actions, shareholder derivative suits, labor and employment matters, and shareholder disputes for our private business clients.

By concentrating on these areas and involving our shareholders in every case, we provide our clients a level of attention that large firms cannot offer.
