Complex commercial litigation frequently impacts a company’s ability to achieve its business objectives. Stradley Ronon’s Litigation Practice Group consists of more than 65 attorneys, many of whom have significant and varied trial, ADR and class action experience. Our litigation lawyers aggressively represent our clients’ interests across a broad range of industries, including pharmaceuticals, financial services, manufacturing, health care and insurance. We are focused on attaining results and providing value for our clients. Stradley Ronon lawyers have achieved courtroom success and favorable outcomes in virtually every type of complex and sophisticated business litigation dispute including:
- breach of contract and business torts
- merger & acquisition disputes
- products liability and breach of warranty claims
- investment scams and securities fraud
- health care disputes
- ERISA claims
- professional liability
- shareholder, partnership and derivative disputes
- copyright, trademark and patent infringement
Our representation of clients involved in complex commercial disputes is guided by three principles. First, we are trial lawyers and everything we do is designed to persuade the jury. This approach not only prepares our clients to win at trial but also delivers the most favorable settlements. Second, we view discovery as a means to an end and not an end in itself. Excessive discovery is wasteful and often counterproductive, and we focus instead on developing those facts likely to drive the decision of the jury. Third, we pride ourselves on a “lean and mean” approach to staffing complex commercial cases. Our experience demonstrates that smaller teams of focused lawyers yield better results for our clients, often at a lower overall cost.
Stradley litigation attorneys also routinely represent companies and clients in a broad array of class actions, including class actions involving federal securities, director and officer, merger & acquisition, financial services, employment, insurance, health care and mass tort claims. Our attorneys are experienced in defending class certification and merits issues, and have successfully navigated the complexities of large scale class action and multi-district litigation for numerous clients.
Our litigation attorneys have been recognized by numerous peer and advocacy organizations for their excellence, including Chambers USA, Best Lawyers in America, The American College of Trial Lawyers, The American Board of Trial Advocates and the Litigation Counsel of America. Stradley litigation attorneys have also been appointed as Special Masters or Receivers in complex and sophisticated disputes by both federal and state courts.
