Our business litigation section adeptly navigates the most significant and complex disputes encountered by a business. In the face of these disputes, our lawyers have successfully defended matters seeking damages in excess of $100,000,000, and have won multiple judgments for clients in excess of $1,000,000. These cases often require unique, intricate, and nuanced approaches. Formulaic methodologies in this arena are usually counterproductive. Instead, our lawyers apply a rigorous legal and factual analysis to unsnarl the dispute and fashion a successful case or an acceptable resolution. Despite their affinity for the sophisticated, our seasoned trial lawyers quickly resolve standard business disputes where a premium is placed on efficiency.
An assessment of the matter is conducted at the outset to determine the best approach. We then work with the client to reach an agreement about the fees and staffing. We learn every aspect of our client’s business, not only to provide insight to a resolution of the current dispute, but help prevent or limit future liability and litigation. In fact, limiting future liability and litigation is the place where we can provide the best value. Our business litigation section represents a wide range of businesses including those in manufacturing, transportation, communications, financial services, real estate development, insurance coverage disputes, title insurance, engineering, construction, oil and gas, sales, professional services, and distribution. This section handles every type of dispute that a business encounters including breach of contract, breach of warranty, UCC disputes, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, fraudulent transfer, alter ego, deceptive trade practices, product liability, and condemnation.
We have significant appellate experience in both state and federal court. Our attorneys are licensed to practice throughout Texas, are admitted to practice in all federal courts in Texas, in the United States Courts of Appeals for the Fifth, Ninth, and Eleventh Circuits, and in the United States Supreme Court.
