Milligan Lawless’ Commercial Litigation practice is comprised of seasoned litigators who have represented national, regional and local businesses, and individuals before federal courts, state courts and administrative agencies in a wide-range of matters, including contracts, business torts, trade secrets, real estate, securities, intellectual property, health care, fiduciary duty, corporate governance and officer and director liability. Our litigation team, the members of which are routinely recognized among the best commercial litigators by The Best Lawyers in America™ and Southwest Super Lawyers™, pursue aggressive, yet pragmatic, strategies to achieve our clients’ goals. In recognition that our business clients aim to achieve cost-effective business solutions and wish to avoid protracted litigation, our team employs varying tactics, including motion practice, targeted discovery, sound business judgment and negotiating skills, to attain early resolution of claims whenever possible. However, if early resolution is not possible, our litigators employ the necessary litigation tactics and advocacy to achieve winning results in the courtroom.
Our litigation team is also adept at employing alternative dispute resolution procedures, such as mediation or arbitration, in lieu of or in addition to litigation to achieve our clients’ business goals. We also counsel clients in best practices and risk management to avoid the costs and uncertainties of litigation.
