Business Litigation Attorneys

A sales agent leaves your company, taking the client list with him. A developer pulls the plug on a new hotel before breaking ground and the architecture firm that designed it demands payment.

Representing Clients in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Nationwide

The vast majority of business disputes can and should be resolved between the parties, without the expense and uncertainty of litigation. When an resolution is not a reasonable option or when one side refuses to deal reasonably and fairly with the other, then litigation provides a means to achieve a just result. Our business litigation attorneys handle cases in both the state and federal courts in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. We also make calculated use of litigation, including civil and administrative complaints, subpoenas, arbitration, temporary restraining orders and other injunctive relief to provide options for fair and just results.
