For business owners, nonprofits, and individuals litigation can feel alarming and intimidating. Our litigators draw from their many years of experience to serve as advocates for our clients and help guide them through the litigation process. Whether defending a claim against a client or prosecuting a claim on behalf of a client, our litigators are well prepared to protect the rights and reputations of the individuals and businesses involved in a lawsuit. 

We have experience handling a wide breadth of complex commercial and employment-related litigation in federal and state courts throughout the country, in addition to the many disputes we have resolved in alternative forums such as arbitration and mediation. In any matter, we diligently assess the details and devise a strategy that yields the fastest and most cost-effective results – regardless if that is a quick settlement or a jury verdict. Our attorneys recognize that litigation can place clients at risk for reputational damage and exposure. We work closely with our clients to understand their concerns in order to minimize those risks from the onset.

Our litigation team is made up of experienced trial attorneys who have a strong reputation of securing results. In addition, we have the advantage of engaging with attorneys across the Firm’s various practices to better comprehend the issues at hand. Attorneys in our Business & Finance, Trusts & Estates, Employment, and Intellectual Property practices serve as excellent resources when it comes to discerning the nuances of particular matters, including those involving breach of fiduciary duties, will contests, tax issues, employment issues, and business contracts. With this collaborative approach, Kleinbard’s litigation attorneys are able to successfully provide guidance, reduce client exposure, and achieve results both in and out of the courtroom.
