Our Legal Services

Commercial Litigation

We have a broad Commercial Litigation Practice Group with established expertise in many industries. Matters range from business matters such as contractual disputes, intellectual property, officers and directors liability to employment, commercial real estate and more.
 
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR)

We counsel our clients to determine which dispute resolution method best addresses their needs and how to pursue the chosen course of action. Determining the appropriate strategy is frequently the most important aspect of our counsel.

Arbitration

A third party is brought in to hear the facts of the case, review documents, briefs and exhibits, listen to lay and expert witnesses, and render a settlement between the parties. This is similar to a hearing in court before a judge.

Mediation

The use of an agreed-upon mediator can be a cost-effective way to negotiate a settlement between the parties. A mediator evaluates the issues in a case, its merits and defenses, and works with the parties to agree upon a solution to the dispute.

Appellate Advocacy

Our attorneys provide research, briefing and oral argument of writ applications, error preservation, post-trial motions and civil and criminal appeals in state and federal courts. The principal attorneys in our Appellate Advocacy Group have more than eighty years combined experience arguing appeals in the state and federal appeals courts. They have won groundbreaking victories in the Washington Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. They are familiar with the judges, the internal procedures, and the personalities of these courts. They have applied this in-depth experience, earned in the Pacific Northwest, to win victories for clients in state and federal courts from Alaska to Florida.

Class Actions

Each class action is unique, with the types of classes certified, claims pled and the jurisdiction involved. Often these cases are nationwide, and they can present significant risk and negative media exposure for the class defendant. We have the experience to mitigate these impacts and bring resolution to high-stakes, class action litigation.
