Litigation can have a significant impact on clients, whether bringing a claim against another party, or being sued. Assessing options and making informed decisions is key to a successful outcome, whether deciding to settle or taking the matter to mediation, arbitration, or before a jury. When a dispute occurs, it is important to consult an experienced attorney to ensure that the process is handled professionally, successfully, and efficiently.

We provide experienced representation to people and businesses involving all areas of civil litigation, including contacts, contorts, business disputes, oil and gas, trade secrets, non-compete and non-solicitation agreements, employment termination and discrimination matters, neighbor disputes, and real estate transaction disputes. We also handle cross-border and international matters, including risk-planning and resolution execution. We most recently represented a Mexican company in a cross-border property-casualty release involving product, property, and personal injury matters.
