Our litigation attorneys are skilled trial attorneys who achieve difficult wins in complex cases.

Our legal, business and technical experience helps us to see the big picture, and we counsel clients on the likelihood of various outcomes to help them make informed decisions about expending resources (both in time and money) to pursue or defend a case.When it is time to act, we are savvy and tough, leveraging our firm’s deep trial and litigation experience and access to advanced technology and research tools. As such, we’re a perfect fit for clients looking for a staunch advocate in their corner and an effectively modernized approach to legal matters.
Corporate & Securities
Companies need capital and talent. To make their money grow, investors need to own a piece of a common enterprise filled with talented people. Both need each other, but both have asymmetrical information and risk, so relationships and reputation are everything to keep the circle of talent and capital flowing. Agreements become a proxy for trust between the parties and clarify how relationships will be judged.Regulators also seek to build trust in the market at large by creating uniform standards, but the diversity of modern commerce makes this task nearly impossible. The system we have is a set of strict rules that are ever-changing to stay ahead (or react to) the cleverness of bad actors. Investors and companies alike need counsel with the experience to navigate through rule-driven laws and to be able to draft and negotiate strong agreements.
New rules are continually changing the old business of borrowing and lending. These new rules stem from market competition, increasing regulation, and technology. Everyone involved needs to keep up with what’s market for common terms as well as what financial product innovations and laws are on the horizon while also never losing sight of the commercial context of a deal. That means keeping each transaction structured as simply and expeditiously as possible, consistent with our clients’ needs.
Intellectual property accounts for a majority of most company’s total enterprise value. With the rapid pace of technological change and competitor forces, though, intellectual property does not retain its value without matching effort. Practicing intellectual property law is a bit of an art that requires forward-thinking creativity to optimize the legal, technical, and business prongs underlying every valuable piece of intellectual property.
Financial services is an extremely competitive industry in which rates and spreads are shrinking, and risks are growing more difficult to manage. To generate returns, clients operate in distinct markets and seek new platforms to reach customers and operate more efficiently. Firms require skilled, hands-on legal support to navigate everything from transactions, to financing and credit matters, to syndications, to bankruptcy proceedings and foreclosures, to commercial litigation involving borrower disputes, asset collection and much more. We also have extensive experience representing banks in bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings involving aircraft. We collaborate closely with corporate counsel to spot legal issues early and avoid the often costly complications that develop when such issues are missed or ignored.
Technology is moving at an ever-increasing pace. Through distributed communication platforms, talented and creative designers, developers and inventors have more access now to other technologies and talent. This makes it easier to develop a genius solution and gain traction to disrupt a once successful incumbent company or established way of doing things.
