Strategic thinkers and advisors that never lose sight of the objective.
Since this firm’s founding more than twenty-five years ago, the two mainstays of our practice have been our role as genuine counselors for our clients and an unswerving focus on skilled advocacy that achieves results.
Each of our attorneys brings several decades of legal experience, expertise and acumen to bear, but we also bring a fresh, vigorous and hands-on approach to the unique circumstances and objectives of each client.
For litigation matters, our work starts the first time the client walks through the door, and begins with total listening and calm reflection. Who is the client and what is the true nature of the conflict? What are the risks and rewards of alternative approaches? We work with the client to prepare a strategy specifically tailored to the client’s goals. Then we pursue that goal with skill, creativity and determination. Employing this approach, we have developed expertise in litigating business and real estate matters, as well as in disputes involving trust, construction, education, trade secret and insurance insolvency law issues, among other things.
We bring this same incisive and balanced approach to sophisticated business and real estate transactional work, the latter involving developers and investors in every stage of acquisition, financing, planning, development, operation and disposition of real estate assets. The quality of our transactional work is enhanced by litigation experience that gives us insight into how deals can be negotiated, structured and drafted to avoid disputes down the road.
Frequently our litigation adversaries – and counterparts in transactional matters — are much larger law firms. Who has the advantage? We do. Typically our client pays for a single, experienced attorney with whom the client has a personal connection, and who knows both the big picture and all the details of your case or transaction. This keeps us agile and adept. On top of that, our attorneys — with decades of experience working together — have developed a synergy that greatly multiplies their individual effectiveness and gives them a real edge over many practice groups found in much larger firms.
Our clients cover a broad spectrum of industries and business niches; they run the gamut from individuals to publicly-traded companies.
