Burr & Forman’s Litigation team is comprised of over 150 attorneys spanning twelve offices in our 7-state footprint. Combined, this team is licensed in 24 states with pro hac vice status in numerous courts throughout the United States.
Our success representing our clients in commercial disputes is based on our desire to establish strong, personal, long-term relationships with them. We are committed to understanding our clients’ businesses so we can align our efforts with their goals and position ourselves appropriately to support their dispute resolution strategy.
If litigation does occur, our attorneys have extensive trial, mediation, and arbitration experience along with a proven track record of successful outcomes. We have tried commercial cases in the Southeast and across the country involving breach of contract, commercial fraud and misrepresentation, bad faith, breach of fiduciary duty, antitrust, franchise, securities, and other issues. In many cases, injunctive relief is vital to protecting a client’s interest on short notice. Our commercial litigators have considerable experience with temporary restraining orders (TROs) and preliminary injunction hearings.
Efficiency and results are our primary objectives. Representing both national and international companies, we work closely with our clients to ensure that we are providing cost-effective services that address the company’s overall goals. Whether we are counseling on litigation avoidance or standing before a jury at trial, our team of commercial litigators is well equipped to handle the situation.
