Business Litigation

At our Rockville, Maryland-based Law Firm, we don't manage litigation; we try cases in Court when necessary. Most business litigation cases are usually a result of a contract dispute which is similar to a divorce. They can get emotional, personal and illogical. Both sides usually want to punish the other side and are looking to sue for justice. In situations like this it is better to get an experienced Attorney on your side sooner than later to try to resolve the matter amicably.

Getting an Attorney involved from the beginning can give you the legal advice and objectivity that may be lacking in an emotionally charged situation between the parties involved. Sure, most cases don't go to trial. But even if a case ends with a negotiated settlement, or goes to a mediation or arbitration (which is a private trial and binding), the best results are almost always the result of the client and the Attorney working from the start under the assumption that the case will go to trial. And if the case does go to trial, then the case is prepped for that moment to help favor the odds for a win for the client against the opponent.

Such Experience And Attitude Benefits You In Many Ways:

  • Better results. Preparation counts — in and out of the courtroom. We demand full discovery against the opponent. Everything is looked at to develop a proper and unbiased risk analysis for our client. Further, our attorneys are adept at responding to Court emergencies such as preliminary injunctions and summary judgments, and we are even capable of taking over a case handled by another Firm before trial on a case-by-case basis. Jumping to our feet for our client and accomplishing the repair of a time crisis is what we do best.
  • Sound business decisions. The decision to settle or go to trial is a tough call — often one of the most difficult decisions a company can make. It's about what's best for the company and the motivations and desired outcomes of all parties involved. Through our experience with hundreds of high-stakes, bet-the-company cases, we can better explain your options for resolution, conduct a thorough and objective risk analysis, and help you reach the best decision for your business without the emotional factor involved.
  • Improved settlement negotiations. Our experience and success — as well as our determined advocacy of and preparation for our clients' cases from start to finish — is well-known to opposing counsel. Our legal tactics help to resolve cases fast and at less cost than wasted motions, wasted time and heated rhetoric that drive up the legal costs for our clients.
  • Efficiency. Staffing each case with the right people — those experienced in your particular issue — saves time and money. We also focus on pretrial strategies that are most likely to resolve matters in your favor before trial, or reduce the issues we take to trial.
