More than ever, no organization is immune to the threat of legal disputes. At Epstein Becker Green, we help companies of all sizes and at all stages of maturity handle litigation as a business challenge rather than a major distraction. Whether enforcing rights through aggressive prosecution, responding to complaints, or defending against formal claims, we develop results-oriented strategies that protect our clients’ interests without upending their business goals.
When disputes arise, our clients need answers. We quickly assemble dynamic, highly experienced teams—including former U.S. Department of Justice civil and criminal prosecutors, appellate and trial court law clerks, and corporate counsel—who are ready to respond with practical advice and put challenges into perspective. Our litigators have extensive experience handling civil and criminal matters in federal and state trial and appellate courts, and before federal and state enforcement and regulatory agencies. We also regularly pursue litigation alternatives through arbitrations, mediations, and other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) forums.
We Make Your Business Our Business
Every client has unique needs and goals. We immerse ourselves in our clients’ business and partner with in-house teams to understand their organizational structure and particular circumstances to shape the right strategy. Our decades of experience representing clients in financial services, hospitality, retail, technology, media, communications, health care, and life sciences, among other industries, equips our team with acute insight into the opportunities and vulnerabilities so that we can meet their needs with proactive solutions.
Focused on Early Resolutions. Ready for Trial.
Clients value that we avoid trial whenever possible. But as experienced courtroom lawyers, we prepare for that possibility and use those tactics to our clients’ advantage. We know how to marshal evidence and present our clients’ strongest position in pre-lawsuit negotiations. Drawing on our decades of experience in presenting cases to juries, judges, and arbitrators, we know how to conduct pretrial discovery effectively and efficiently with the singular goal of putting claims to rest and keeping our clients focused on their business priorities.
Relationships Based on Efficiency and Transparency
We build long-term client relationships based on thoughtful and innovative litigation management solutions. We don’t litigate just for the sake of litigation. As early as possible, we provide direct and realistic assessments of a client’s situation. Based on its needs, business objectives, and resources, we explore the most direct way to achieve early resolutions. If a longer fight is inevitable, we launch an efficient e-discovery process with streamlined document retention programs, discovery response plans, and guidelines to protect electronically stored data.
Proactive Counsel to Minimize Future Exposure
Clients rely on our litigation experience to prevent future liability. We are dialed in to the specific and ever-changing industry trends, pressures, and pitfalls our clients face in the course of their operations. Clients turn to us to review their contracts, organizational structure, third-party agreements, and relationships to address weaknesses and position them with the upper hand in future negotiations and litigation. We also empower in-house teams and executives with enhanced contract drafting and negotiation skills and help them design highly effective conflict management systems.
