Commercial litigation

Porter Wright litigators represent clients in a wide variety of disputes stemming from commercial and business transactions. We represent clients, including corporations, partnerships and individuals, in cases brought in state and federal courts throughout the country, international tribunals and arbitration proceedings worldwide. Our clients range from Fortune 100 to small- and medium-sized companies. We handle complex business disputes involving mergers and acquisitions, hostile takeovers, private equity, corporate governance, post-acquisition disputes, breach of warranty and representations, and fiduciary duty claims. Our litigation experience extends to commercial matters such as insurance coverage litigation, contract-based claims with substantial lost profit or economic loss components, and claims brought under the Uniform Commercial Code and international law.

Our attorneys are committed to zealous and effective advocacy, sound planning and regular client communication. We recognize that sometimes victory at all costs may be no victory at all, so we work with our clients to establish litigation budgets and practice effective cost control. We further recognize that, even though they are involved in litigation, our clients have businesses to run. As a result, we make every effort to understand their operations and their business, as well as their legal needs, and to minimize the disruption litigation can impose. In the end, our clients’ business disputes are not just another case to us. We view their success as our own and vigorously pursue client business goals throughout litigation.

The firm draws not only from the talents and work product of our litigators but also from the extensive cross-discipline capabilities of attorneys with experience in every area of law.
