Commercial Litigation

Foran Glennon’s commercial litigation practice helps companies resolve difficult and critical business disputes around the country. We approach each matter by considering our clients’ unique interests and objectives and have a proven track record of achieving efficient and effective results.

Our attorneys tailor each engagement to our clients’ expectations, but one enduring aspect of our approach is an ability and willingness to take each dispute to trial. With focus on preparing each matter for the potential to be presented to a jury, we ensure outcomes that meet and exceed our clients’ needs. We also recognize our clients’ businesses come first and work with them to keep legal disputes from impacting ongoing business interests and relationships.

PLAINTIFF AND DEFENSE EXPERIENCE

We represent companies as both plaintiffs and defendants in commercial litigation. As plaintiff, we assess the most streamlined path toward resolution (including pre-suit negotiations) and diligently press to maintain the strongest possible positions that will positively impact outcomes when litigation is filed.

In situations where our clients face a lawsuit as a defendant, we work strategically with all interest holders to determine an approach that will facilitate the most desirable resolution, whether that means motion practice, consensual resolution or vindication at trial. At all times our focus is on communicating with our clients to ensure we meet their needs and making sure each matter is resolved economically.

SOPHISTICATED INDUSTRY KNOWLEDGE

Our attorneys have served public and private companies in a wide variety of commercial litigation matters and arbitration proceedings, including in multi-jurisdictional matters and cross-border proceedings. Whether it is bet-the-company litigation, contentious contract disputes, matters arising out of construction or other complex projects or pursuit of fraud perpetrators, commercial tortfeasors or other wrongdoers, our experienced attorneys position clients for successful dispute resolution.

We work with clients in sophisticated and highly regulated industries, including financial institutions, insurance companies and construction companies, as well as a wide range of mid-sized and start-up companies.

Foran Glennon attorneys have served as nationwide counsel for companies that have significant litigation needs (both in terms of magnitude of particular cases and volume of litigation matters) and provided services as trial and coordinating/monitoring counsel to such firms. Our experience allows us to partner with litigation consultants with a wide range of expertise.

With a depth of industry knowledge, trial readiness and an ability to draw the right teams from across the country and across the world, we have the breadth and depth of experience to achieve the results clients trust.

GLOBAL REACH

We have represented clients from around the world in commercial disputes in the US. Our attorneys understand the perspective of our international clients and are able to answer their questions and guide them through the challenges presented by litigation. We appreciate that communication with our international clients is important to determine the best resolution strategy on a given matter. In addition, we have experience advising our international clients and their subsidiaries when they are served with a lawsuit in the US. In that role, we have experience defending those clients in jurisdiction challenges.

We have experience evaluating cross-border disputes and litigation concerns, issues pertaining to the United Nations Convention on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and various model laws, treaties, and working groups of UNCITRAL, and concerns about cross-border jurisdiction, judgment enforcement, and international arbitration. We have counseled clients regarding matters implicating various countries in the Americas, Europe, and Asia, and we have a network of counsel around the world ready to assist us with global disputes.
