Business and Fiduciary Litigation

Our litigation practice is limited to specific areas. We represent clients in business, tax and fiduciary litigation matters. Our attorneys practice in federal and state trial and appellate courts, and appear before federal and state boards and agencies. It is our goal to provide you with the most effective and efficient resolution to the issue in dispute. Litigation may not be the only solution and we will discuss dispute resolution alternatives with you. We are business attorneys and therefore approach litigation from a legal as well as a business perspective.
