Effective Counsel in State or Federal Business Litigation
The litigation practice group at Leland, Parachini, Steinberg, Matzger & Melnick LLP represents clients on a broad spectrum of disputes in a variety of forums, from administrative agency hearings to federal trials and appeals.
The breadth of our business litigation clientele reflects decades of practice: manufacturers, service providers, wineries, high-tech equipment and computer service companies, schools, nonprofit organizations and individuals. We typically have longstanding and even generational relationships with our clients, which helps us place their litigation problems in the context of their broader business objectives.
Our attorneys also understand that clients might themselves be operating under stringent pressures of time, budget or uncertainty. We therefore look for creative solutions aimed at avoiding business litigation or resolving disputes through alternative means.
Collaboration between our litigators and our business attorneys can often turn up opportunities for favorable outcomes short of full-blown litigation. Whether or not your problem can be steered clear of litigation, our lawyers will give you an estimated budget and timetable that addresses the demands of your situation.
