Our mainstay is in complex commercial litigation.


In many of our commercial cases we hear the court say: “This is an issue of first impression.” It is that feature that converts an ordinary case into a complex commercial or complex personal injury litigation that our firm routinely handles. These cases also typically feature multiple parties with differing defenses and liabilities, insurance coverage issues, and questions involving predecessor or successor liabilities. The ability to sort through these multi-faceted questions quickly and strategically is a critical aspect of the service we provide to our clients.
