Our commercial litigation practice includes antitrust
and trade regulation claims, banking and lender liability
issues, business torts, construction disputes, contract
disputes, environmental claims, insurance coverage and
bad faith claims, professional liability (accountants
and attorneys), officer and director liability, trust
and estate litigation, and securities fraud.
The Firm's experience includes litigating interference
and infringement actions in a variety of administrative,
court and alternative dispute resolution forums. Our
litigators have experience in a broad range of intellectual
property litigation, including patent and copyright
infringement, trademark and trade name infringement,
computer and software performance and trade secret litigation.
Malpractice and Personal Injury:
We represent both plaintiffs and defendants involved
in medical malpractice and personal injury actions.
Unlike many firms, we represent plaintiffs who have
incurred serious injury due to the negligence of others
on both an hourly and a contingent fee basis.
Our attorneys also have experience in all employment-related
substantive areas, including claims of defamation, intentional
infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract,
discrimination, negligent hiring, sexual harassment
and wrongful termination, as well as claims asserting
violations of the ADEA, ADA, FMLA, FLSA, ACRA and Title
VII. In addition, we represent both plaintiffs and defendants
in matters dealing with covenants not to compete, non-solicitation
covenants, and confidentiality agreements.
We have an active, diverse healthcare practice, providing
clients a uniquely valuable level of experience and
perspective. We represent individual physicians and
proprietary specialty hospitals and group practices.
We have experience in a wide variety of healthcare-related
issues, including numerous hospital privilege and state
licensing board disputes, peer review and related medical
We strongly support using Alternative Dispute Resolution
("ADR") mechanisms such as mediation, mini-trials
and arbitration, when appropriate. Through properly
planned ADR methods, clients can prevent or reduce costly
litigation expenses, resolve disputes more quickly and,
by resolving disputes in private, minimize adverse publicity.
In addition, because disputes are resolved in non-adversarial
ways, ongoing business relationships can be maintained.
addition, two of the firm's lawyers are trained
mediators. One of them is on the mediation panels of
the American Arbitration Association (for commercial
and insurance related disputes), the National Association
of Securities Dealers and the Arizona Board of Realtors.
Several of the attorneys have extensive arbitration
experience; two currently serve on the American Arbitration
Association's Commercial Arbitration Panel, and one
is a public arbitrator for the National Association
of Securities Dealers.
