Litigation

The primary job of the Litigation Group at Levenfeld Pearlstein is to protect our client’s assets – namely, their people, their products, their intellectual capital and their time. There is no shortage of litigation attorneys that can competently represent sophisticated and successful business owners and institutional clients. Many are good lawyers but few are great business lawyers. Some lawyers will tell you what you want to hear, while others are more than happy to take your money without taking the time to really understand your goals and articulate a litigation strategy from start to finish.

In the real world (as opposed to the “legal” world), “winning” means different things to different people. Sometimes litigation is unavoidable. Other times it can be a well-thought-out and calculated investment. It can also be messy and expensive. Sometimes you are better served by moving on and going back to work. If there is one constant, it is this: one size does not fit all. This is why we start with the philosophy that to be a great litigator you must first be a great business counselor who understands the client’s business, appreciates its tolerance for risk and reward, is able to articulate a goal and see the “big picture.”

We hate to lose because we really do appreciate what is at stake for our clients – whether they are successful entrepreneurs, established businesses or private or publicly held institutions. That is why we litigate aggressively, value “out of the box” thinking and are always looking to find the leverage in a dispute.

We believe in the same things as our clients - that if we are going to put in the time, focus and energy required to create and sustain a successful business, then we should be as good as we possibly can. What we do every day is not just about making money – it’s about providing meaningful client service to people and companies who need our help and whose relationships we value.
