Our commercial litigation attorneys have represented retailers, manufacturers, hospitals, financial institutions, real estate developers, and other businesses in complex commercial disputes for more than 75 years. Successful litigation, proactive counseling, and responsive client service have always been our hallmarks.
Smith Haughey attorneys are entrusted to thoroughly analyze the risks, costs, and benefits of a potential lawsuit versus alternative dispute resolutions. The ideal solution for a specific client may not be litigation, but prevention and settlement prior to a lawsuit. Thus, we provide clients with methods of avoiding litigation, and advice on using non-litigation alternatives to resolve business disputes. If negotiation fails to achieve our clients’ desired results, our premier litigation attorneys are ready to respond rapidly and efficiently. Our attorneys effectively and efficiently handle all phases of the litigation process, based on sound strategy jointly developed with the client. When cases go to trial our attorneys prioritize risks, design prudent options and formulate adaptable courtroom approaches. This is never more evident than during complex, fluid and high-risk situations. Our attorneys have earned the respect of judges as aggressive attorneys who adeptly meet our clients’ needs.
