Litigation & Trial Law


Dickinson Bradshaw's litigation lawyers represent individuals, corporations, limited liability companies, and other types of entities in business, by giving thorough consideration to clients' business interests while serving their litigation needs.  We have the ability and experience to win cases, but more importantly, we look for the best business resolution for our clients, which may not occur in the courtroom.

In the courtroom, Dickinson's trial law attorneys handle cases in a wide variety of industries. Our litigation lawyers represent clients in state and federal trial and appellate courts, as well as in arbitration and mediation, and administrative proceedings. We also counsel and represent clients in administrative proceedings and in regulatory investigations and hearings. Matters include complex antitrust, securities and reinsurance claims, shareholder disputes, deceptive trade or business practices, unfair competition, breach of contract claims, and disputes involving the purchase or sale of securities, trade secrets, Uniform Commercial Code transactions and non-compete agreements.

We represent our clients' interests outside of the courtroom as well, recognizing that an early, prudent settlement is oftentimes better for a client's business than a costly and time-consuming legal battle. Where appropriate, we recommend alternative dispute resolution procedures to bring prompt and efficient resolution to complex litigation and to reduce the costs and delays often associated with traditional litigation.

Whether trying a case or negotiating with an adversary, our litigation attorneys understand the importance of managing a case efficiently, analyzing risk to our clients as new facts become known, and communicating regularly with clients throughout the litigation process to provide them guidance that will allow them to make sound decisions.
