The Litigation Department is widely recognized as one of the most experienced in the world, with a large number of seasoned trial lawyers in every major discipline of complex corporate litigation and dispute resolution. Our lawyers represent clients around the world in federal and state trial and appellate courts, before government agencies, prosecutors and administrative bodies, and in arbitrations, mediations and other forms of alternative dispute resolutions. The firm prides itself on its utilization of the litigation process as a means of obtaining the commercial objectives of our clients. As a result, we have a proven track record of achieving success prior to trial. When needed, however, we have trial lawyers available to take a case before a court, jury or arbitration panel, an asset that enhances the result ultimately achieved by our clients.

The foundation of our Litigation Department is its many practice groups which cover all of the most significant and complicated areas of corporate litigation and bring together leading practitioners who combine years of experience in a particular litigation area with the practical trial and other litigation skills that are essential to providing the most effective representation possible.
