We will do everything in our power to minimize the disruptions that a dispute will cause while achieving the best outcome possible.
We recognize that commercial litigation can be enormously expensive and look for solutions that will produce the optimum result at a reasonable cost. We have the experience to devise strategies, leverage positions and expose weaknesses in order to maximize settlement value and bring about a more rapid resolution to legal disputes.
Fraud and Director & Officer Liability
We have had tremendous success in holding boards accountable for their mismanagement that causes economic harm and other wrongdoing, be it acts of fraud, extremely poor decision making, or a willful failure to act.
Being on a board of directors or serving as a member of a limited liability company can expose one to risk and liability for wrongdoing that causes economic and other harm. Most board decisions are good, but some constitute outright fraud, and others are plain wrong. Mismanagement can cause devastating economic loss. Boards are made up of people. They are not nameless and faceless. We hold them accountable for their actions and inactions.
Corporate Transactions & Outside General Counsel
We advise public and private companies, small businesses and startups, and trusts and high-net-worth individuals on all aspects of corporate law in acquisitions, mergers, restructures, private equity and venture capital with the aim of achieving commercial and effective strategic outcomes.
