In litigation, the result is what is important. Whether a case is resolved with a settlement, by trial, or after an appeal, our extensive experience allows us to anticipate likely and unlikely scenarios, helping us to achieve the best results for our clients. With extensive courtroom experience, our attorneys have tried cases in federal and state courts throughout the nation, and in domestic and international arbitrations. Our team-based approach to litigation draws on the particular talents of each of our attorneys. In addition to our courtroom advocacy skills, we take pride in the quality of our written work product, including trial court pleadings, motions and memoranda, and appellate level briefs.
We represent both plaintiffs and defendants in a broad range of business disputes. A typical case may involve a partnership or corporate dispute, breaches of fiduciary duty, securities violations, fraud, or other commercial torts. In addition, we have substantial experience in banking litigation, insurance coverage disputes, and litigation involving professionals, including legal, accounting, insurance brokerage, and engineering malpractice. On more than one occasion, we have been called by a former opposing party interested in engaging our services in new litigation. Having focused our practice solely on litigation (rather than, for example, on a combination of transactional and litigation services), we have gained a depth of experience equal to the litigation departments at the major national law firms, whom we quite frequently face as opponents.
While we are licensed and regularly practice in the state and federal courts in our three local jurisdictions (Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia), our practice really knows no geographic boundaries, as we regularly litigate cases in state and federal courts around the country.
