Dickinson & Wheelock, P.C. Law Firm

Business Lawyers for Entrepreneurs

Commercial Litigation

Extensive Experience

Our lawyers have handled hundreds of lawsuits. The amounts in dispute have ranged from $10,000 to over $100,000,000. We have been entrusted with both defensive and offensive matters, in state courts, federal courts and arbitration. Additionally, our lawyers have unique insight into litigation, serving as third-party mediators and arbitrators for others. This extensive experience makes us valuable advocates in the event litigation becomes necessary.

Focus On Resolution

We are well aware that no case becomes cheaper as the fight drags out. So, our goal is to reach a conclusion as quickly and efficiently as possible without sacrificing quality legal representation. This goal is accomplished by first working with the client to accurately assess the situation and then implement a strategy to reach productive resolution through settlement, mediation, trial or arbitration.

Efficiency & Value

Generally, we believe that litigation is most cost-effective when handled by a single attorney, instead of a "team" of lawyers. This strategy allows your lawyer to be intimately familiar with all aspects of your lawsuit and prevents "dual-billing" or other repeated efforts which cost you money. However, if your case is more complex, it may be appropriate to assign different tasks to lawyers of different skill levels. Regardless, all of our efforts will be calculated to "move the ball."
