In all likelihood, the operation of a commercial enterprise eventually involves litigation. Disputes arise regarding the reasonable discharge of duties that parties owe one another under contract, statute or common law. Litigation is the strength of our practice and foundation for Jimerson Birr’s success. The firm has far-reaching experience handling disputes born out of the interpretation and enforcement of contractual rights or business torts. We develop and adapt our litigation strategies to the particular facts of each case, with every matter sharing the common goal of achieving a resolution that best addresses our client’s specific business needs. The firm advises clients regarding the costs and benefits of different strategies, including settlement and trial, in assessing and minimizing potential litigation risks at each stage of the case’s life cycle. As part of this process, we evaluate the feasibility of less expensive alternatives to litigation, including but not limited to several forms of alternative dispute resolution.

Jimerson Birr takes a professional yet down-to-earth approach to the practice of law. We understand that, for commercial clients, sound legal decisions must make good business sense and be in line with corporate moral philosophies. We employ this approach through every step of the litigation process, from pre-suit diligence, to pre-trial discovery and on through trial and appeals. Without sacrificing aggressive advocacy, we pride ourselves in finding a balance between asserting rights and reducing liability exposure.

We believe our positive track record and the high satisfaction of our clients speak for themselves, and we welcome the opportunity to service your litigation needs. Jimerson Birr has extensive experience representing businesses of all types in all variants of business litigation, including:
