Business disputes are inevitable in today’s corporate world, and they bring with them a number of risks: financial losses, damaged reputation, and even government investigations or media scrutiny. In the right hands, however, litigation can be a powerful tool to resolve disputes while minimizing these risks and may even create new opportunities: the right case at the right time can advance important strategic business goals. While the risks may seem daunting, the rewards are often sizable, and that is why smart companies need experienced counsel when responding to or initiating litigation.
Dickstein Shapiro provides clients with exceptional representation in every stage of the litigation process. With more than 200 litigators backed by dozens of transactions, regulatory, and government relations professionals, we emphasize a multidisciplinary approach to trying cases—one that goes beyond the courtroom to achieve the best results for our clients. Though we are adept at handling complex litigation and disputes related to novel issues of national consequence, our focus is on achieving the most positive outcome for our clients as quickly and efficiently as possible. At each step, we evaluate the risks and rewards so clients can make an informed decision on how to proceed in litigation. From securing quick settlements to advising on complex, multiparty litigation, our clients trust us for favorable results that benefit their bottom line.
In the courtroom, our attorneys use targeted litigation strategies to secure incremental wins that turn up the heat on opposing counsel and make favorable settlements more likely. When settlement is not an option, our clients are in good hands: more than half of the firm’s litigation partners, across all practices, have first-chair trial experience. When going to court is the best course of action, we have the experience and savvy our clients need to win.
