Overview

Effective representation, both inside and outside the courtroom

Disputes can be complex, time-consuming, and costly. Between legal fees, settlement costs, and potential damages or judgments, the financial burdens of litigation can strain a company’s resources and impact its bottom line. Even worse, the unpredictability and stress of litigation can create anxiety, disrupt day-to-day operations, and erode customer trust, investor confidence, and brand value.

That is why our dedicated team of experienced litigators is committed to helping our clients resolve disputes efficiently while protecting their business interests. At Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, we take a strategic approach to litigation, recognizing that every case is unique. We provide clear guidance, explore alternative dispute resolution methods when appropriate, and advocate aggressively in the courtroom when necessary.

Our experience in litigation

The litigators at Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig represent clients in complex disputes in a variety of practice areas to address the diverse needs of our clients. When possible, we resolve matters through negotiation and settlement or by seeking dismissal. When litigation is unavoidable, our bench has experience in arbitration and mediation, before federal and state regulatory agencies, and in federal and state trial and appellate courts around the country.

For example, we handle a broad range of commercial litigation matters, including partnership and shareholder disputes, business torts, fraud, unfair competition claims, and more. We represent businesses in a broad spectrum of commercial disputes, including breach of contract claims, business torts, and shareholder disputes. Our firm also provides comprehensive representation for owners, contractors, and subcontractors in contract disputes, payment disputes, and construction defect matters.

We also provide robust defense representation for businesses facing employment-related litigation, including discrimination claims, harassment claims, wrongful termination suits, wage and hour disputes, and class-action lawsuits.

Additionally, we handle estate and probate litigation matters, including will contests, trust disputes, and fiduciary litigation.

We also represent clients in a wide range of intellectual property disputes, including trademark infringement, copyright infringement, and trade secret disputes, as well as disputes related to internet and domain issues, including domain name disputes, cybersquatting, and online defamation.

Our firm represents clients in product liability cases, including defective products, product recalls, and consumer safety issues.

We handle a wide range of real estate disputes, including boundary disputes, landlord-tenant disputes, and breach of contract claims.

Finally, we serve as local counsel and provide pro hac vice services for out-of-state attorneys and law firms. We assist in navigating local rules and procedures, ensuring seamless representation for attorneys and their clients.
