Saul Ewing's Commercial Litigation Practice manages complex business disputes for regional, national and international companies in federal and state courts and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) forums. With commercial litigators and trial attorneys who have been honored and recognized by Chambers USASuper LawyersAmerican Lawyer Media and Benchmark Litigation, our attorneys assist clients in risk management and avoiding litigation, and are equally prepared to vigorously fight a case when warranted.

Commercial Litigation Practice Approach

The attendant risks and costs of litigation are understandably top-of-mind for company executives and in-house counsel. Saul Ewing provides early case assessments to directly address these concerns.

Along with litigation budget estimates, our attorneys also discuss probable outcomes, consider creative litigation strategies, and identify resources warranted for a particular case.

In many matters, the most cost-effective strategy is to use dispositive motions, sometimes early in the case, to decrease long-term discovery costs and either resolve the case or reduce it to a manageable size. Saul Ewing attorneys routinely advise clients on ADR options before and during litigation. Our client's desired result remains omnipresent as we seek well-timed opportunities for mediation or other ADR methods that lead to favorable conflict resolution.
