How We Can Help

Civil litigation encompasses legal disputes that are non-criminal in nature. We handle a large and varied litigation case load, including civil, criminal, family and probate cases, and a wide range of administrative hearings. Certain cases regrettably limit themselves to litigation, and in those cases, we believe in getting the case before the judge or jury as quickly and efficiently as possible. That said, the court system is slow, expensive and unpredictable. We therefore encourage clients to use alternative dispute resolution (negotiation, mediation and arbitration) whenever possible. We regularly appear before all state and federal courts in the State of Vermont, and before many of its administrative agencies.

Our attorneys are available to represent you on a variety of matters involving litigation, including the following:

  • Breach of contracts

  • Business disputes

  • Business torts

  • Complex commercial litigation

  • Real estate litigation

  • Insurance claims

  • Labor and employment litigation

  • Mergers and acquisitions

  • Securities and investments

  • Shareholder disputes

Our attorneys have experience representing plaintiffs and defendants in and out of court, and are available to work with you to reach your desired outcome.
