Commercial Litigation

Whether in the courtroom or at the negotiating table, HKM lawyers are powerful advocates for our clients. We will work quickly and effectively to fairly resolve any dispute.

HKM’s commercial litigation lawyers have extensive experience in handling business disputes. We regularly appear in both state and federal trial courts and have successfully litigated a broad range of cases, including:

  • Anti-trust
  • Copyright infringement
  • Trade Dress
  • Civil Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) cases
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Uniform Commercial Code issues
  • Patent infringement
  • Contract disputes
  • Real estate disputes
  • Financial institution litigation
  • Creditors’ remedies, collections and bankruptcy

Using commercial arbitration and mediation, the HKM commercial litigation team also uses alternative dispute resolution when appropriate.

HKM commercial litigation lawyers work closely with their colleagues who concentrate their practice in corporate and business transaction law in order to quickly and effectively achieve the best results for clients. Because business disputes are often complex, involving numerous facts and countless documents, we utilize technology that enables an efficient method for organizing and analyzing data during trials or negotiations.

The first step in every case is to conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances. Drawing on our extensive commercial litigation experience, we chart a trial strategy and recommend alternatives that may resolve the dispute in a more timely fashion. Yet, we are always prepared to go to trial when that will best serve our client. It is this pride in knowing the facts of our case inside and out, and willingness to go all the way if necessary, that separates HKM litigators from other trial attorneys.
