What We Do
Business and Commercial Disputes
A lingering dispute can cost a company time, money and goodwill. Our firm is aggressive in pursuing resolutions to business disputes as efficiently as possible to reach the best possible results. We prepare for every case as though it is going to trial. Our focus on diligent trial preparation makes us formidable opponents in the courtroom and gives us an edge during settlement negotiations. Opposing counsel knows that we will zealously pursue our clients’ goals.
Our business and commercial disputes division handles complex government contracts, commercial leases, contract disputes, business torts, technology issues, defamation and corporate litigation. We handle complex commercial matters in the fast-paced Virginia courts and in jurisdictions throughout the country.
Employment relationships are governed by a vast body of complex laws. The laws that apply to small businesses are different that those that apply to midsize and larger companies. Our attorneys understand the nuances of the laws and regulations related to discrimination, harassment, FMLA, wage and hour rules, commissions and termination to deliver strong representation to employees and employers.
We take a two-tiered approach when representing businesses in employment law matters. First, we counsel businesses about creating policies and processes that avoid disputes. Second, we act decisively to resolve disputes that arise in the workplace as expeditiously and equitably as possible.
White Collar Criminal Defense
A person charged with a white-collar crime faces imprisonment, fines and damage to reputation and career. Even a criminal investigation can be devastating. For this reason, anyone who believes he or she is the target of an investigation should not delay in retaining legal counsel.
It is often possible for our lawyers to often help our clients avoid prosecution altogether. If charges are filed, we vigorously advocate for clients.
Privacy is a fundamental right that is increasingly under attack. Data stored on electronic devices or transmitted through the Internet is less secure than people realize until the government issues a subpoena or unlawfully retrieves the electronic communications. Our law firm advocates for our clients’ rights to keep their information private and confidential from government intrusion.
Civil Rights and Political Law
The Constitution is the backbone of our legal system. Our firm takes on large institutions, such as universities, education departments and government bureaucracies, to fight for our clients’ fundamental rights to free speech, due process and privacy guaranteed under the Constitution.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Arbitration is often more cost-effective and expeditious than litigation. Our attorneys recommend alternative dispute resolution, when feasible, to save time and money while allowing us to make a strong argument and present solid evidence on our clients’ behalf to reach a binding decision.
