Our firm’s general litigation practice is devoted to representing clients who are facing liability due to claims arising out of their business operations and commercial relationships. Litigation and even unmeritorious claims have the potential to cause substantial disruption and threaten public reputations.  Our clients rely on our attorneys to strategically resolve complex civil and commercial disputes as efficiently and discretely as possible.

We represent clients in state and federal litigation throughout Connecticut, including trials and appeals. While our attorneys have secured numerous notable defense verdicts in recent years, we emphasize pre-trial resolution of disputes, and we have resolved the substantial majority of our clients’ cases through out-of-court settlements and favorable pre-trial court decisions. With decades of combined experience and a focus on defense representation for health care providers and other professionals and business organizations, our attorneys offer unique levels of insight, practical knowledge and legal experience for resolving complex disputes at all phases of the litigation process.

Cases We Handle

Our general litigation practice is devoted to representing new and existing clients in disputes that fall outside of our core practice areas of healthcare law, medical malpractice, professional malpractice, commercial law, and labor and employment litigation. For example, within our general litigation practice, we have represented individuals, businesses and institutional clients in matters including:

  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) litigation
  • Defamation claims
  • Premises liability litigation
  • Vexatious litigation claims

As defense counsel in these and other types of matters, our goal is to fully protect our client’s legal and financial interests while limiting disruptions to their business operations to the greatest extent possible. We understand the burdens of litigation, and we appreciate that there is never a good time to face a lawsuit. While we are in the business of litigating, our clients are not and, for us, success means achieving positive results for our clients before the burdens of litigation have a substantial negative impact on their operations and the patients, clients or customers they serve.

Strategic Defense Representation for All Stages of Complex Litigation

Whether you have received a demand letter, you have just been served with a summons and complaint, or you are simply aware of an issue that has the potential to lead to litigation (regardless of the veracity of the allegations involved), our attorneys can help you determine the best path forward. While litigation can be costly and disruptive, we explore alternatives available to resolve the matter amicably out of court and out of the public eye. If necessary, we will fight vigorously to protect your interests in court. Our attorneys are prepared to do whatever it takes to help you avoid unnecessary consequences of litigation.
