Practice Areas

Our attorneys have produced an extraordinary series of favorable outcomes for our clients.  We have successfully represented clients in high-stakes and often precedent-setting lawsuits, including class actions and multi-district cases.  Our practice encompasses all aspects of litigation, including antitrust, banking, complex financial products, creditors' rights and bankruptcy, employment practices, entertainment, environmental, family law, general corporate and commercial, government affairs, insurance recovery, intellectual property, international arbitration, investigations and white collar defense, mass tort and product liability, real estate and securities.

Our approach is decidedly aggressive.  We are convinced that we achieve the most favorable results for our clients by focusing from the beginning of each case on preparation for trial.  Our lawyers take a significant number of matters to trial each year.  Our trial-ready reputation and preparation have been the basis for achieving favorable results for our clients not only in trials but through settlements and alternative dispute resolution procedures as well.

We have pioneered the development and implementation of creative and cutting-edge legal strategies for handling the most serious litigation matters nationwide.  We work closely with our clients in developing these strategies and we are particularly attentive to the broader business, legal and public relations implications of the matters we handle. We look for opportunities to enable our clients to turn legal liabilities into assets, and we have been successful in doing so.

This site describes several of the areas in which our firm’s attorneys have substantial experience.  Few of the firm's attorneys, however, would describe their experience by reference to even only a few of these areas.
