Business Litigation

The world of business inevitably involves disputes—about money, real, personal, or intellectual property, or corporate rights. The firm's commercial litigation attorneys have the skill, experience, and contacts to assist clients with litigation matters nationwide. Our litigation teams have successfully tried countless jury and non-jury cases and have effectively argued numerous cases in various federal and state appellate courts throughout the United States. Further, our attorneys work closely with the firm's clients to strategize as to how best to approach litigation in general, at all times keeping in mind the clients' interest in managing costs but also aggressively pursuing acceptable litigation outcomes.

While we stand ready to litigate, our attorneys also understand the benefits of alternative dispute resolution. Our lawyers routinely participate in mediation and arbitration proceedings and encourage clients to find constructive ways to resolve disagreements without resorting to costly and time-consuming litigation. Our primary focus and ultimate goal is to obtain the best and most cost-effective result for the client.

We provide clients with a creative, hardworking team equipped to address even the most complex legal problems efficiently, effectively, and responsively. Our litigation attorneys can also draw on the vast experience of our non-litigation attorneys in the areas of real estate, eminent domain and land use, finance, taxation, and corporate law to provide the best advice and representation possible.

Our firm's vast experience in the field of commercial litigation includes representation in intellectual property cases, including matters involving patent, copyright, and trademark rights; breach-of-contract cases; cases involving misappropriation of trade secrets and unfair competition; products liability; environmental litigation; lender liability; construction disputes; white-collar criminal defense; and zoning, land use, and condemnation cases.

The group is led by John A. Christy. For any questions or additional information about our commercial litigation practice, please contact John at 404-681-3450 or
