Civil Litigation & Alternative Dispute Resolution

Legal disputes can be time consuming, costly, and distract from important parts of everyday life and business. Our civil litigation practice offers representation at all levels of court, as well as in alternative-dispute resolution forums. We represent individuals and companies, which range from local individuals to international businesses, to achieve the best outcome in the most timely and cost-efficient way. Our strength and experience in negotiation and litigation have given us success in resolving even the most difficult of civil disputes, which often means avoiding litigation altogether.
