Complex Civil Litigation

We represent plaintiffs and defendants in complex civil cases.  As seasoned trial lawyers, we approach each civil dispute with a strategy built around how to win the case at trial.  Where possible, we use this approach to assist in reaching better negotiated solutions.  We also have substantial experience in handling civil litigation that runs parallel to government enforcement cases.
