Our Practices

Commercial Litigation

"Defending the rights of businesses and business owners"

Our corporate litigation team takes pride in how we support our business clients. Commercial litigation and arbitration can be complex, so our attorneys make sure we know all aspects – legal, business and personal – of each case. With a thorough understanding of the big picture, we negotiate, mediate and litigate to protect the rights and interests of our clients.

Our corporate litigators work closely with shareholders, partners, business owners, managers, and corporate teams to develop a cost-effective strategy that works. We have experience litigating matters in front of local, state, district, and federal courts, and when possible, we assist clients in resolving matters out of court through alternative dispute resolution methods. Niles Barton also has a substantial appellate practice to help clients handle matters on appeal.
