Litigation is a serious undertaking. To prevail, clients need exceptional representation inside and outside the courtroom. Michael Best & Friedrich LLP's Litigation Practice Group, with more than 70 attorneys and paralegals, provides clients with exceptional service and representation in nearly any type of litigation.
To prevail in litigation, clients need exceptional representation both inside and outside the courtroom.
Our litigation lawyers are, first and foremost, courtroom advocates. When circumstances demand, our first chairs, including former federal prosecutors and others with significant jury and court trial experiences, take cases to trial and win. At the same time, we focus on all aspects of pre-trial procedure and discovery. Our litigators also serve clients outside the courtroom, achieving successful results through arbitrations, mediations, and all forms of alternative dispute resolution.
