From pretrial case assessment through trial and, if necessary, appeal, Stradley Ronon’s complex commercial litigation team has successfully resolved a broad spectrum of bet-the-company cases and high-stakes disputes in state and federal courts in multiple jurisdictions.
Whether facing a significant commercial case or a class action dispute, clients routinely call on us to represent them in their most significant and sensitive litigation matters. They do so because they trust us as tenacious courtroom advocates and are confident that we understand their businesses, their legal and regulatory challenges, and their reputational concerns.
From the earliest stage of a dispute, we work closely with our clients to help them evaluate their options, manage their costs, and develop a strategy to efficiently and effectively achieve their goals. Our multidisciplinary practice and collaborative approach enable us to readily draw on the knowledge and skills of attorneys throughout our firm to offer subject-matter and industry-specific knowledge and experience.
In each case, we focus sharply on developing the facts, themes and issues that are most likely to persuade the judge, the jury or the corporate decision-makers. Doing so promotes efficiency, particularly in the age of costly electronic discovery, and also positions the case for meaningful settlement discussions or effective presentation at trial. With an experienced team of electronic discovery practitioners, we tackle electronic discovery in a practical and cost-effective manner. Employing cutting-edge technologies, we manage even the most document-intensive multijurisdictional cases efficiently.
Recognizing the value in narrowing the scope of cases and disposing of complex commercial cases before trial, we employ dispositive motions, alternative dispute resolution strategies and effective settlement techniques to limit our clients’ exposure and resolve matters quickly. In instances when a trial proves necessary, clients can rely on our deep bench of experienced and accomplished trial lawyers who have successfully tried hundreds of cases to verdict or award.
OUR Diverse Experience
Representing publicly held and privately owned companies from a wide range of industries, including financial services, insurance, pharmaceuticals and manufacturing, as well as governmental entities, receivers and individuals, our lawyers have handled a wide range of cases, including:
- securities fraud allegations

- merger and acquisition disputes
- shareholder disputes
- intellectual property licensing and infringement disputes
- RICO claims
- business torts
- lender liability matters
- contract claims
We have won dismissal of numerous complex, high-profile matters employing pretrial preliminary and dispositive motions, enabling our clients to avoid costly litigation. When trial proves unavoidable, our skilled trial team can effectively present the case to the jury to position cases for favorable disposition.
Clients also rely on us for proactive risk avoidance counsel that helps identify and address issues before they become problems. We routinely advise clients on risk management and other techniques that are aimed at eliminating or resolving disputes before the costs associated with litigation are incurred.
Our lawyers have received numerous awards, accolades and recognitions, including fellowships in the American College of Trial Lawyers, Litigation Counsel of America and the American Board of Trial Advocates. Stradley Ronon's litigation practice group was recognized as one of the top in Pennsylvania in Chambers USA: America's Leading Lawyers for Business and named a finalist in The Legal Intelligencer's Litigation Departments of the Year awards.
