Litigation

Litigation is both complex and fluid.  Decisions made at the outset impact available options weeks, months and even years later.  However, the information necessary to choose the best path is oftentimes available only after extensive discovery and review.  Determining the extent of the exposure, potential impact to existing and future business operations and even the effect on the company’s image are all important points of consideration.

Our litigators are engaged in high-stakes matters and commercial disputes – trying cases, conducting arbitrations, mediations, negotiations, counseling clients through governmental investigations, defending individuals and corporations charged with business-related offenses and providing insight to avoid litigation and manage risk.

Leveraging real-world knowledge in business, finance, medicine, science and engineering, our litigators are able to help Fortune 500 and middle-market clients anticipate what lies ahead and plan for contingencies.  We build client teams with the goal of providing focused insight and a more aggressive approach to securing information and testing theories.

Philosophically, we prepare all matters with the expectation they will go to trial – understanding that strategic and tactical decisions necessarily flow from the client's decisions concerning what is best for their company, product or brand.  We work closely with our clients to develop the discovery plan that most suits their needs and goals.

We have a long and successful history of trial work; however, our goal is to help clients achieve the best possible outcome within predictable financial limits.  Dinsmore has earned a national reputation for providing significant value with well-managed litigation teams.  With over 250 litigators, we provide a deep bench and local knowledge of court systems, which affords clients with sophisticated representation at reasonable cost.
