Practice Areas

Complex Business Litigation

Paul and Chris represent clients in a wide of array of complex commercial litigation matters, including those involving contracts, business fraud and misconduct, professional liability, and employment and corporate fiduciary duties.  They have what most litigators in major law firms do not:  years of federal jury trial experience in high profile, high stakes matters. 

They understand that litigation is important to the client’s business interests, but that the means of litigation must never overshadow the ultimate business objectives.  That is why their approach is always focused on providing the highest quality representation in the most cost-effective, client-centered manner.  Paul and Chris understand and are sensitive to the fact that often in litigation, early resolution is the most effective way for clients to achieve the best results with the least expense.  However, cases sometimes need and deserve to be tried.  When that is either unavoidable or in the best interest of the client, Paul and Chris are able to draw upon their substantial trial experience as federal prosecutors and defense attorneys to obtain desired results in front of judges and juries.
