Our litigators are seasoned trial attorneys who practice in state and federal courts and appear before appellate courts through the state and federal courts, arbitral and administrative panels. Our public and private sector clients trust us to handle their most sensitive, significant and high-profile matters. We have prosecuted and defended general commercial and business disputes in both individual and class action settings at every level of the justice system.
We proceed in litigation in the most efficient, creative and aggressive manner, always keeping our clients’ interest and communications with our clients front and center. Our goal from the start of every case is to devise a winning strategy with close consultation and approval by the client. We try to place our clients in a leveraged position at every interval in the life cycle of the litigation.
If the decision is made to go to trial, we are ready. We try cases in front of judges, juries, judges, administrative panels, arbitrators and appellate panels. We utilize the latest computer graphics to illustrate and prosecute our clients’ legal and factual arguments. As an example of this work, two of our trial teams simultaneously tried jury cases to successful conclusions in Palm Beach and Miami-Dade Circuit Courts. In one, we obtained a $5 million settlement midway through the trial of a complex construction matter involving the City of Boca Raton’s library. In the other, we obtained a jury verdict in favor of one of the owners of the legendary Joe’s Stone Crabs restaurant in a $20 million lawsuit involving claims for breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty. Few firms in the South Florida can claim the breadth of experience and talent to win two high-profile cases conducted at the same time.
We are also proud that more than 150 times, courts have decided that our matters involved such challenging and novel legal issues that they have published their opinions about our cases. These reported court opinions have, in turn, helped shape the law at the local, state and national levels.
In addition to our team of top-notch litigators, our clients benefit from our knowledge of government contracts, municipal law, zoning and land use, commercial law, business law, real estate, employment and labor law, civil rights, election law, eminent domain, environmental law and ADA accessibility, as well as a wide array of state and federal constitutional challenges. We also maintain an active appellate and administrative law practice generated both by our own trial court litigation and by referrals from our peers.
