The lawyers in our Commercial Litigation practice have represented clients in virtually every type of business and commercial dispute. We routinely assist our clients with preemptive advice on potentially contentious aspects of major corporate and commercial transactions. Our clients often seek aggressive, trial-ready advocates who will demonstrate both the client’s legal resolve and also its readiness to pursue its legal remedies through a trial. However, there is often the need to maintain an ongoing relationship with the opponent: there is a time to hit hard and a time to take a more measured approach.

We are well versed in related court proceedings, such as jurisdiction challenges, freezing orders and the enforcement of arbitral awards. Our expertise is reflected in the wide variety of clients for whom we act including airlines, ship owners, gas and oil companies, traders and entrepreneurs.
