In Litigation, There Is No Substitute For Experience
Litigation tends to fall into two general categories. The first, and by far the most common, is a matter in which the goal is a rapid, favorable settlement. The second is a case that affects an issue critical to the client – a case that must be taken to trial and won. The Litigation Group at DeCotiis, FitzPatrick, Cole & Giblin, LLP, has expertise in handling both.
Over 25 litigation lawyers at our firm collectively have decades of trial experience at every level of both federal and state courts. They have hundreds of published opinions to their credit, reflecting the breadth of their experience in trial and appellate courts alike, up to and including the Supreme Court of the United States.
Wide-ranging Industry And Practice Area Knowledge
Although we are primarily a defense firm with an emphasis on commercial litigation, we routinely handle matters in other practice areas, including:
By collaborating closely with our lawyers across the firm who focus on these areas, we provide clients with a coordinated, cost-effective combination of trial expertise and in-depth subject knowledge.
Furthermore, our team of lawyers has particular talent, and an unmatched record, in representing public entities in significant or politically sensitive matters. Many of our members have held high-level government or regulatory posts.
Assertive Advocacy And Sensible Strategy
Our approach to litigation combines aggressive advocacy with flexibility. If a case goes to court, we are aggressive, strategic trial lawyers, respected by both opposing counsel and the judiciary. Every case is unique, and we will pursue and try it that way. Our goal is always to win.
While we are justifiably proud of our record of success in court, some of our most significant successes involved negotiated solutions to problems that appeared to require litigation and the utilization of alternative dispute resolution techniques to cut short matters that were already in litigation. The firm’s efforts to resolve disputes at an early stage reflect its commitment to avoid the expense, delay and uncertainty of litigation wherever possible – a commitment that we make and uphold to all of our clients, be they major corporations or private citizens. Where recourse to the courts is a necessity, however, the Litigation Group has the resources, experience and expertise needed to pursue relief until it is achieved.
