Litigation & Dispute Resolution

While Culhane attorneys have the experience, grit and skill to fight our clients’ battles before state and federal judges, juries, arbitrators and administrative law judges, we view litigation within the larger framework of our clients’ business and/or personal objectives. Not every dispute requires the commitment of executive time or the expense and disruption of otherwise profitable commercial relationships that frequently ensue when formal litigation is pursued. For that reason, we have employed a variety of alternative dispute resolution techniques to seek resolution at the earliest possible opportunity.

However, when litigation becomes necessary, Culhane’s experienced partner-level attorneys offer our clients a wealth of experience in the areas of law and in the courts in which we practice, as well as a passion to use our experience to help solve client problems. The breadth of our practice covers the full range of litigation issues that businesses encounter, including:

  • Arbitration & Mediation (ADR)
  • Appellate (State and Federal)
  • Bankruptcy
  • Breach of Contract Claims
  • Business Torts (e.g., tortious interference, negligent misrepresentation)
  • Employment Law
  • Franchise Litigation
  • Insurance Coverage Litigation/Bad Faith
  • Intellectual Property
  • Patents
  • Trademarks & Brand Protection
  • Trade Secrets
  • Securities
  • Technology
  • Unfair Competition, Restrictive Covenants & Fiduciary Litigation

A growing part of our practice involves work to minimize our clients’ risks and exposure of doing business in today’s litigious world. While we are prepared to aggressively litigate to protect our clients’ interests, avoidance of litigation remains one of our primary goals. Our attorneys work with our clients to define, assess and minimize litigation risks and to develop programs to help them comply with specific contractual requirements and with the laws and regulations that affect their business.
