General Commercial Litigation

Since our inception, we have been known for our national litigation practice. More than half of our attorneys are litigators representing clients who range from emerging growth companies to Fortune 500 corporations in a variety of complex and often high-profile disputes. 

Services include:

  • State and Federal trial and appellate representation
  • Arbitration, mediation and alternative dispute resolution services
  • Administrative adjudications
  • Regulatory investigations and hearings

Our reputation as a “Litigation Powerhouse®” (according to the Chicago Tribune) was built as we represented corporations across the country in virtually every one of the 50 states. 

Our litigation teams repeatedly take complicated matters to verdict. We consider ourselves “trial attorneys first” and our philosophy is to prepare cases to be tried.  We believe our trial-ready approach provides the best ultimate outcome, whether by the verdict or settlement. With each client, we focus on case management technology to meet client budgets and deadlines and provide regular and efficient communication and counseling.

This approach has attracted a wide array of clientele, including large national and international manufacturing companies, banks, real estate firms, construction companies, high-technology firms, restaurant companies, and public entities.

When matters go to trial, we employ our vast trial advocacy experience, state-of-the-art video presentation techniques and shadow juries to give analytical feedback during the course of the trial. We also use our state-of-the-art, in-house E-Discovery Lab to control our clients’ costs, gain control over the process and provide a comprehensive solution to data management.
