COMMERCIAL LITIGATION

Every business dispute is different, involving distinct facts, personalities, and objectives. What doesn’t change from case to case, however, is the need for deft handling, proven advocacy skills, and a razor-sharp focus on achieving the desired result – the very strengths that clients have come to expect from the attorneys at McShane & Bowie.

Whether bringing or defending a lawsuit, we help you determine an appropriate goal and then craft a litigation strategy to effectuate that outcome. Some disagreements warrant discretion and pre-suit negotiation, while others demand aggressive, toe-to-toe combat in the courtroom. We counsel clients on how to position each and pursue their vital interests, and then become their champion in the litigation arena.
