Perkins Coie has litigated and prevailed on behalf of plaintiffs, defendants, claimants and respondents in sophisticated disputes in federal and state courts throughout the country and in a wide variety of arbitration forums. Even as trials have become increasingly rare, in just the past four years, Perkins Coie’s business litigators have tried more than 100 cases, and have handled numerous arbitrations across the country and internationally to achieve critical client victories.
Our deep litigation bench, which includes 15 Fellows of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers, litigates claims and disputes related to all forms of agreements or contract rights between individuals, shareholders, corporations, partnerships or LLCs; business torts, including prosecution or defense of interference with contract rights, fraud, unfair competition and misappropriation of trade secrets; infringement of copyrights and other intellectual property rights; negligent misrepresentation; civil conspiracy; and federal or state regulatory violations.
Cognizant that the majority of business disputes are resolved via motion or negotiated settlement before trial, we use our significant real-world courtroom experience to help clients achieve better case resolutions earlier and dramatically reduce litigation expenses.
