Hanson Bridgett's litigators are in the business of resolving our clients' legal disputes. Often this means winning at a trial or arbitration, or vigorously defending against claims in order to reduce our clients' financial exposure. It also means mediating or negotiating a favorable settlement that manages our clients' risks when it makes good business sense to do so. But at all times, it means working collaboratively with our clients to understand their needs and objectives in order to develop and implement an intelligent litigation strategy to achieve their goals in an efficient and effective way.
The firm's business litigators represent clients in the broad range of disputes that a business is likely to encounter. We represent our clients as both plaintiffs and defendants. Typical disputes for which our attorneys have extensive experience include:
- Breach of Contract Actions
- Fraud Claims
- Consumer Lawsuits
- Misappropriation of Trade Secrets Claims
- Antitrust and Unfair Competition Claims
- False Claims or Deceptive Advertising Claims
- Corporate Governance and Fiduciary Duty Disputes
- Claims By or Against Trustees
- Corporate, LLC and Partnership Disputes and Dissolutions
- Class Actions
Our litigators are active and respected participants in the legal community. We have successful track records in state and federal trial courts, on appeal and in private arbitrations and mediations through thoughtful, tenacious and skillful advocacy. But our primary focus in each case is to understand and achieve our clients' business objectives. That requires knowledge of our clients' business, their industry and the willingness to think broadly and creatively (inside and outside the box) in order to achieve our clients' goals.
Our experience covers a wide range of industries including: financial services, healthcare, agriculture, food and wine, retail and manufacturing. We also continue to represent clients in numerous other industries as well. Our experience has also taught us that, regardless of the industry or subject matter involved, success comes by applying hard work, intelligent legal analysis and, perhaps most importantly, common sense.
