Administrative, Civil and Appellate Litigation

When litigation is necessary, we won’t hesitate to go to court. But escalating emotions doesn’t help anyone. We see things differently. We focus on the result. We have extensive experience before all levels of state and federal trial and appellate courts and administrative tribunals. Our representation often involves challenges to, or defense of regulatory and environmental permits, land use and zoning decisions, licenses, and state procurement contracts and purchasing decisions. Our team also handles commercial litigation, including commercial and construction contracts, non-compete agreements, foreclosures, and real property disputes.

Our litigators have extensive experience in state and federal appellate courts, including federal Courts of Appeals around the country and the United States Supreme Court.

While we litigate when necessary, we recognize opportunities to resolve client disputes in other creative ways, including through arbitration or other alternative dispute resolution procedures. Many of us serve as mediators in complex litigation matters. Several of us are certified mediators and have served as special masters on local government enforcement matters.
