Business Disputes

Clients bring their business disputes to JHLAW for one reason: Our commercial litigation team tries and wins complicated cases. We aggressively seek litigation resolutions short of trial, and resolve many cases successfully through creative use of dispute resolution procedures, including mediation and arbitration.

Our business and commercial litigation team draw upon their vast experience in handling of virtually every type of business lawsuit. JHLAW’s seasoned team are highly skilled at handling cases of complexity, protecting and preserving clients’ interests through constant communication and client involvement. We represent the individual, the public entity, and the corporation in local, state, national, and international forums. We guide clients in identifying critical issues and quantifying litigation decisions in terms of risk and cost containment. We partner with our clients throughout the entire adversarial process.

We understand all that is at stake in the courtroom and for the enterprise. From the very start of a case, we examine all possible angles and outcomes, both legal and financial. From there, we engage in careful strategic planning and assemble a team that will achieve the desired result for our client.
