Business Litigation

When it comes time to litigate our focus remains targeted on understanding the clients’ specific business objectives. Litigation is a means to an end; it is almost never an end in itself.  At Davis Goldman, we never lose sight of that. Our firm’s philosophy is to aggressively litigate every action in the most cost-effective manner possible to best achieve our clients’ goals. We advise clients throughout the litigation process with a particular focus on each client’s litigation goals, whether pre-suit, during the course of litigation or post-litigation when it comes time to collect a judgment or evaluate taking an appeal.  It has been our experience that each client has a different tolerance for litigation and different expectations regarding what litigation can accomplish and how quickly litigation can achieve their goals.   In many cases it is not possible to avoid litigation, in which cases our attorneys are ready, willing and able to aggressively and zealously litigate on behalf of our clients, taking cases to a verdict.

Our litigation experience also informs our outside general counsel and transactional legal services, helping us evaluate our clients’ business operations, assessing areas of potential legal risks, and counsel clients regarding the impact of future conduct the clients may wish to take. Our goal is to keep our business clients out of court by helping them identify and proactively respond to potential problems before they become lawsuits or regulatory actions. We identify business practices that could give rise to future lawsuits and counsel clients on how to eliminate or minimize legal risk as part of an ongoing, interactive process with many clients and their management teams.
