A business relationship must be based upon trust, fairness, respect and the performance of promises that have been made. When business commitments are broken, then legal action may be the only means to secure one's rights.

Whether a contact has been breached, or a valuable idea, trademark or other intellectual property wrongfully stolen, or a shareholder and investor wrongfully denied their rights, prompt consultation with a knowledgeable and experienced attorney is critical to successfully securing one's rights and property.

Well-experienced in both arbitration and trial, and with years of experience in negotiation, we come prepared to efficiently and skillfully resolve the most challenging and complex business disputes.
