Litigation is generally an extremely costly and time-consuming means of resolving disputes. Accordingly, Advantage attorneys understand the importance of developing an effective litigation avoidance strategy. We have the practical legal and business experience to develop sound legal arguments supporting our clients’ interests and we can effectively communicate these arguments to opposing parties to negotiate favorable settlements. If a dispute cannot be resolved without litigation, however, Advantage attorneys will advise you in the pursuit or defense of claims in the state and federal court or through alternative dispute resolution methods.
When the decision is made to file a lawsuit, the most critical stage of the litigation takes place prior to any trial. The pleadings and motions of the attorneys on both sides determine whether or not a case even makes it to trial. An experienced defense attorney will be able to have cases dismissed on various procedural grounds. Plaintiff’s attorneys who can withstand such motions to dismiss provide their clients with maximum leverage for settlement. It is important to have attorneys experienced all aspects of pre-trial practice because proper management of this process can quickly establish the legitimacy of a dispute and limit the overall expense of litigation.
Our attorneys can provide cost-effective representation in every type of commercial dispute, from simple insurance coverage cases to complicated breach of contract cases. We also represent clients before a variety of regulatory agencies, such as the Internal Revenue Service and the National Association of Securities Dealers.
