Business and Corporate Practice

At Mickes O’Toole, our litigation practice starts by listening to our clients and understanding how litigation relates to their overall business goals. We realize that all of our clients have distinctive needs and objectives and, therefore, our commercial litigation strategies must be designed to recognize the uniqueness of each situation, while simultaneously capitalizing on the experience and substantive backgrounds of our experienced litigators.

We understand our clients’ need for cost management and take an aggressive approach to reducing the cost of litigation.  Our attorneys are committed to partnering with each client to set litigation goals, to develop plans and budgets to implement those goals, and to work diligently and effectively to achieve them.  Our litigation attorneys are innovative and aggressive in their pursuit of strategic outcomes for our clients.

Our attorneys practice in federal and state trial and appellate courts throughout the country.  Our experienced litigators handle all aspects of the litigation for our clients, including discovery, depositions, motion practice, trial and appeal. We also regularly counsel and assist our clients in resolving business disputes prior to litigation and successfully resolve cases through mediation or arbitration.

Our areas of experience include contract disputes, intellectual property matters, class action proceedings, franchise disputes, toxic torts and environmental property damage cases, construction litigation, insurance claim and coverage cases and real estate litigation, including zoning disputes, property and title disputes and condemnation actions.  We also have experience representing public entities in tax disputes.  Attorneys at Mickes O’Toole routinely represent clients in a litigation involving management and corporate control issues, mergers and acquisitions, shareholder appraisal rights, contract disputes, employment agreements, covenants not to compete, financial transactions and insurance coverage disputes. The firm also has considerable experience conducting internal investigations for corporate clients.

Our diverse clients range from individuals to local, regional and national firms, and include publicly held and privately held businesses, banks, manufacturers, professional firms, insurance companies, construction companies, health care providers, and governmental entities.
