Long-Standing Clients Who Trust Our Judgment to Guide Them

Many clients have retained us for decades, through startup, governance issues and other matters, including partnership disputes. We have been involved in a significant amount of litigation, in particular in business and corporate litigation, public policy and public interest litigation, including as special prosecutor in the corruption and fraud investigation of the Clinton administration's Secretary of State. We number among our lawyers a former attorney general for the state of Iowa and certified mediators.

Yet we are cognizant that litigation is especially costly and it brings a legal matter out of the control of our clients and puts it into the hands of a jury and judge. Alternative dispute resolution may be a more effective way of resolving your legal concern, and we have the skills, honesty, and knowledge to achieve your goals without litigation. We are also adept in handling Alternative dispute resolution matters such as arbitration and mediation.
