We frequently counsel clients regarding litigation practice, litigation avoidance, and risk management. In addition to our civil litigation practice, we have an active “white collar criminal” practice group which continues to expand in large part due to the increasing complexity of business in an environment of growing governmental regulation, as well as state and local government’s increased reliance upon criminal sanctions to encourage compliance with business laws and regulations.

In addition, with our clients’ business operations increasingly becoming more global in scope, we have assisted clients engaged in arbitration and litigation disputes in foreign jurisdictions.
