Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Hanson Bridgett litigators provide custom solutions to help clients achieve results that matter. We balance cost effective litigation management tools with time tested techniques to find advantages during all phases of the dispute, whether it be discovery, trial, arbitration, mediation or otherwise. The firm’s litigation practice spans many substantive areas and includes deep experience at all levels of research and investigation, discovery, project management, alternative dispute resolution, trial, and appeal. When problems arise, we work closely with the client to identify and master the key issues and objectives, mapping a strategy for resolving the dispute in keeping with the client’s goals and means.

By taking a proactive approach, we identify and create choices for resolving disputes while helping the client to identify and manage the risks and benefits of each particular path. We are no strangers to the courtroom and have won many important victories that have generated headlines. However, time has shown that our greatest victories are those that came through the careful planning, strategic analysis and open communication that has produced satisfied, well informed, clients who continue to work with Hanson Bridgett.
