Industries & Services


Contract disputes arise in every industry sector but all share a defining feature – they are disruptive to your business. Our lawyers have defended and pursued breach of contract claims for decades, on behalf of Fortune 500 and family-owned businesses alike, in industries ranging from automotive to professional services.

Our goal in these fights is to eliminate that disruption as efficiently as possible. And we know that the key to success is to make sure we understand precisely how your business works and how the contracts at issue impact your operations and relationships. Our appreciation for the real-world implications of the dispute helps us tailor your litigation strategy as effectively as possible. It might mean filing an emergency lawsuit to gain immediate leverage through an injunction or instead to plot a more measured approach in a confidential arbitration.

Our lawyers also have as much experience drafting and reviewing contracts as they do litigating them. We can help you spot potential issues in your contractual relationships in order to develop a strategy for dealing with opposing parties to head off litigation whenever possible.
