Our attorneys maintain an active, daily practice in the state and federal trial and appellate courts across the Commonwealth of Virginia and beyond, including courts serving Roanoke, the New River Valley, and Central and Southwest Virginia. We advance and protect our clients’ business interests, whether by prosecuting or defending against a lawsuit. Such lawsuits usually involve contract disputes, business torts, defamation (slander and libel), intellectual property infringement (copyright, trademark, trade secret, and patents), and methods of unfair competition. When a business dispute reaches the breaking point, we will help you find the most appropriate, cost-effective and satisfactory route to a resolution.
Before initiating a lawsuit, our attorneys will make a reasonable investigation and determine the appropriate claims to bring in a suit. Because a lawsuit can prove costly and uncertain, we will often explore alternative dispute resolution, like mediation. When alternative methods prove inadequate or inappropriate, we press our clients’ cases in court, using the full set of litigation tools available to us.
Our attorneys also understand how to prosecute and defend an appeal. We have experience advocating on behalf of clients at the Court of Appeals of Virginia, the Supreme Court of Virginia, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Learn more at our Appeals page.
