Litigation, Investigations, Risk Mitigation

Litigation

We have intimate knowledge of both sides of a case because we have defended against and relentlessly pursued lawsuits for our clients, including those involving claims of breach of fiduciary duty, theft of trade secrets and breach of contract; fraud and negligent misrepresentation; violations of non-competition and non-solicitation provisions; and employment discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation. We have the trust and confidence of our clients in the courtroom.
