With commercial litigation attorneys in our 10 offices, the Commercial Litigation Section is led by David Israel (metro-New Orleans), Kevin Barreca (metro-New Orleans), and David Clouston (Dallas).
On a nationwide basis, we provide a full array of litigation services for our clients, from pre-litigation resolution to arbitration or trial, whether prosecuting or defending claims.
Our attorneys appear nationwide in federal and state courts and frequently arbitrate before the American Arbitration Association or other arbitration forums. We also work with numerous insurance carriers regarding such disputes.
Should you be sued, or should you need to protect your company by instituting litigation, we staff cases based on location and expertise. In those states where we have an office, matters filed in that state are typically placed with that office.
Focus on Bottom Line Results
Understanding that successful businesses expect results but are also mindful of the bottom line, our commercial litigation attorneys tailor services that efficiently and creatively address each client’s particular needs.
Depending upon the issues involved and client needs, the goal is to reach a speedy and favorable resolution while minimizing the disruption litigation can cause.
