Litigation arises in a variety of situations and circumstances.

We have handled complex and high profile cases nationally and locally, including the first virtual property lawsuit in the country. Many of these cases have involved the analysis and review of millions of documents. We have represented large companies, including Fortune 500 companies and large non-profits.

While some of our competitors charge case evaluation fees for such claims or attempt to bill for the initial consult, we offer free consultations with regard to such matters. Many matters are handled on a contingent basis, but we do consider hourly and/or mixed contingent fee or reduced hourly rate agreements.

Examples of cases that we have handled or would consider handling include:

  • Business Litigation
  • Commercial / IP
  • Securities
  • Employment
  • Discrimination
  • Whistleblowers
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Birth Injuries
  • Personal Injuries
  • Product Liability
  • Worker’s Compensation

Commercial Litigation

Commercial litigation often involves two sophisticated parties fighting over aggressive business practices, including those that run afoul of the law. We have handled simple matters, such as straight-forward breach of contract issues. We have also handled complex matters, including antitrust, commercial loan defaults, lender liability, price-fixing, trademark and copyright violations. We were involved in the first domain name squatting case in the United States, and also the first virtual property lawsuit in the United States.

Commercial litigation cases can require substantial resources. When appropriate, we consider partnering with other firms so that the cases are staffed correctly given that many times a larger, better-funded competitor will employ the largest firms in the world, staffing the case with 50 or more lawyers. Irrespective, we have handled cases involving millions of documents and that required twenty or more depositions.

Examples of cases that we have handled or would consider handling include:

  • Antitrust
  • Breach of Contract
  • Class Actions
  • Copyright
  • Domain Name Squatting
  • Lender Liability
  • Trademark
  • Unfair Competition
  • Virtual Property


Some securities cases arise simply because a financial advisor is negligent and fails to provide the correct advice under the circumstance. Still, many more occur as a result of financial advisors that are attempting to make money at their client’s expense. Such abuses can take many forms, including recommending products that are inappropriate for the investor, yet generate large fees for the financial advisor; or even the rapid and repeated selling of securities simply to generate fees for the financial advisor.

We have handled a wide variety of securities cases, stemming from straight-forward cases of outright theft of client money, to more complex cases involving sophisticated ponzi schemes. In many cases, we have taken on the biggest banks in the world and have caught them destroying documents or hiding evidence.

Examples of cases that we have handled or would consider handling include:

  • Breach of Fiduciary Duty
  • Churning
  • Failure to Supervise
  • Fraud
  • Hedge Funds
  • Misrepresentations / Omissions
  • Negligence
  • Over-Concentration
  • Ponzi Schemes
  • Unsuitability
  • Unauthorized Trading
