Litigation

The litigation practice of Cantey Hanger operates in seamless cooperation with each of the firm’s other practice areas to promote a comprehensive and thorough approach to resolving disputes. Our attorneys’ skills are honed to the courtroom, but we view ourselves as strategic partners for our clients, evaluating legal matters that could lead to or have developed into actual litigation and advising on the best course of action. We bring both a diversity of experience and a wealth of knowledge to this process.

Our litigators analyze, prepare and present cases for resolution before state and federal courts, administrative law judges and arbitrators. We explore with our clients the appropriate use of out-of-court solutions through negotiation and alternative dispute resolution. When litigation is the only solution, our attorneys are highly experienced and effective in courtrooms, guiding clients through the complex steps of a trial and an appeal.
