Do You Know Your Options?

Out-of-court negotiations are often the ideal starting point for a dispute. If all parties involved are able and willing to compromise, several legal options are available. The primary choices are informal negotiation, mediation and arbitration. These options are less formal than litigation and can help avoid the costs and delays associated with a lawsuit.

Litigation, the act of going to court to have a judge or jury decide your case, is often the last resort. It puts your future in someone else’s hands and can be a long process.

There are times, however, when you must go to court. If your case requires litigation, you need a strong advocate with courtroom experience. You need one of our attorneys.

Do You Need A Creative Fee Agreement?

It may be rare for civil litigation firms to offer contingency fee options for business litigation cases. But with our many decades of experience, we have developed an ability to predict which lawsuits are likely to win for our clients.

In appropriate cases, we represent clients on a contingent fee basis in business disputes. In those cases, no attorneys’ fee is paid unless or until a recovery is made. We also offer hybrid-fee agreements (most often a lower hourly fee combined with a percentage of case recovery) in suitable cases. This can allow our clients to pursue meaningful claims without sacrificing the working capital necessary to continue running their business.
