McGlinchey’s widely recognized Commercial Litigation team defends Fortune 500 corporations and financial institutions, national and regional businesses, insurers, and entrepreneurs in a full range of commercial litigation issues.
While both our practice and client base are broad, we maintain a special emphasis on complex corporate and contract disputes, creditors’ rights, and litigation on behalf of financial institutions and lenders, and lender representation in bankruptcies and workouts.
We offer clients a wide range of strengths, including:
Multi-industry fluency. The in-depth experience and knowledge our attorneys about a broad array of industries allows us to quickly, easily, and efficiently deal with the nuances of a particular case in a particular industry, because we have teams composed of the lawyers most knowledgeable about the issues based on skill sets, not geography. It is not unusual for us to represent a client in one state assisted by lawyers from our other offices who have experience and understanding of the industry involved or the legal issues presented.
Influential networks. We have a strong governmental relations team that builds and maintains close relationships with government officials and policymakers. Through our Government Contracts, Relations, and Lobbying team, we not only represent and advise clients about potential legislation that may affect them and assist in lobbying efforts, we also are proactive in suggesting legislation that may help the client in existing or future matters
Commitment to efficiency. Clients tell us they value the ways we manage cases, especially complicated ones. With an eye towards cost efficiency for the client, we ensure that senior partners handle and oversee litigation, but we keep staffing lean, including junior partners and our well-trained associates as needed. Our litigation record shows that’s been a recipe for success.
ADR sophistication. Because alternative dispute resolution is a significant component of a litigation game plan, our litigators are well-versed in ADR. With a number of our attorneys trained as mediators and arbitrators, our familiarity with the ADR process helps us to achieve numerous favorable client outcomes in arbitration and mediation venues.
