Our litigation practice has extensive experience assisting for-profit and nonprofit clients with a wide range of litigation matters, ranging from handling subpoena requests to representation at trial. Our attorneys can also be very effective in keeping clients out of litigation and that is probably where we can provide the most value. Finally, to the extent a litigation matter arises that requires a particular sub-specialty, we are well-suited to assist our clients in finding the right specialist for the matter at issue for an efficient and adequate resolution.
Sub Practice Groups
Our attorneys represent our clients in ways that preclude formal legal proceedings. That said, since businesses and individuals must, at times, pursue and defend a wide range of claims in formal proceedings, we have built a depth of experience in representing clients at trial, arbitration and on appeal.
Trust, Estate, and Probate Litigation
We have extensive experience handling many types of trust and estate litigation, including will contests, will and trust construction cases, defense and prosecution of fiduciaries for breach of fiduciary duty, accounting actions, and defense and prosecution of claims by and against estates.
Our lawyers successfully represent and counsel both employers and employees on a broad range of employment-related disputes. We represent employers in the hiring and termination of employees. We also routinely negotiate severance agreements and handle litigation regarding the enforcement of restrictive covenants, such as non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements, non-disclosure agreements and confidentiality agreements.
Real Estate Litigation
Our lawyers have comprehensive knowledge and experience handling many types of real estate litigation matters including matters related to development, construction and property transactions.
Tax Controversies and Litigation
Our lawyers handle a broad array of tax controversies, dealing with the Internal Revenue Service as well as state tax authorities. In addition to preparing tax returns and advising on tax law and compliance matters, our tax lawyers and our Trusts and Estates lawyers routinely handle audits and examinations at the district and appeals levels.
