Dispute Resolution

Our firm provides effective strategies and representation with respect to all aspects of litigation, arbitration and mediation, domestic or international, including obtaining injunctive and other relief for our clients. Our dispute resolution attorneys have experience in handling a broad range of dispute resolution matters, including those requiring specialized expertise, such as product liability, intellectual property, tax, administrative matters, medical malpractice, real estate, labor/employment litigation and employment mediation. In recent years, lawyers, judicial scriveners, public accountants, real estate brokers and other professionals have become the targets of claims for damages; moreover, with the worldwide expansion of economic activity, there has been a corresponding increase in the number of international lawsuits, arbitrations and mediations claiming enormous damages. The foregoing trends have meant that, while there has been an increase in the protection of individual rights, there has also been an increase in the risks associated with business activities. Our firm has a great deal of expertise and experience in dealing with such claims, and our attorneys are constantly using their knowledge and skill to represent our clients with respect to dispute resolution involving new types of damage claims and related legal issues.
