Commercial Litigation:

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.

Intellectual Property:

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.

Medical 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.

Employment Disputes:

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.

Healthcare Disputes:

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 staff issues.

Alternative Dispute Resolution:

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.

In addition, two of the firm's lawyers are trained arbitrators and
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.
