Our firm is often called on by clients and other lawyers to address business, personal and legal crises that require a fast response by lawyers in our firm working in several practice Groups.
In a typical situation, lead lawyers across our Litigation, Criminal Defense, Intellectual Property, Employment Law, and Business and Banking groups (along with our Education Law and Health Law Groups, when appropriate) join forces to quickly assess the situation and develop with the client an action plan that is immediately implemented – including, when appropriate, seeking injunctive or other equitable relief, developing internal and external communication plans, and changing business or institutional practices.
We have extensive experience handling:
- Both sides of cases involving a key employee leaving one company for another and taking along key business relationships and intellectual property
- License revocations
- White-collar crimes
- Government investigations and audits
- Business freeze-outs
- Theft of intellectual property
- Violations of non-compete and confidentiality agreements
- Terminations of CEOs or other senior managers
- Claims against fiduciaries
Our trial lawyers have appeared in state and federal courts on very short notice to present our client’s position in the most effective manner.
Our advantage is that every lawyer in the firm shares our strong commitment to working as a team to provide whatever service is needed to resolve a crisis for our clients. That often involves shifting existing work to free up members of the firm, and putting in long hours on nights and weekends.
We all enjoy the challenge of that kind of work and the feeling of accomplishing something special for the people we serve.
