Our reputation precedes us. Because adversaries know —and respect — our courtroom capabilities, they’re more willing to resolve cases on a reasonable basis. If appropriate resolution is not achievable, our clients can count on our unmatched jury trial experience and courtroom skills.
In addition to defending cases brought against our business clients, Lightfoot prosecutes cases on behalf of those clients against other businesses, often employing alternative fee arrangements to mitigate out-of-pocket costs.
Lightfoot’s corporate recoveries cases have ranged from successfully representing a small business against one of the largest business consulting firms in the country to handling a matter on behalf of a publicly traded company against a major software manufacturer. These cases have been pursued both in court and through arbitration. Learn more on our Corporate Recoveries page.
