Commercial Litigation

MPS Law’s commercial litigation group consists of trial attorneys who are experienced in all aspects of federal and state court litigation and proceedings in alternative dispute resolution forums. We employ a cost-conscious approach while ensuring that every case is fully prepared for trial. Our goal is always to obtain the best possible result for our clients, whether that means settlement or trial. Our litigators are also experienced in appeals and are equipped to take over at any stage of a case, whether from the very beginning, on appeal, or some time in between.

We serve clients ranging from large international companies to small local businesses, as well as municipalities, entrepreneurs, and other individuals. Our clients benefit not only from our successful trial experience but also from our efficient and cost-effective services. Our services in this area include:

  • Business disputes, including breach of contract, disputes between owners, actions against officers and directors, dissolution and valuation proceedings, business torts, and employment disputes
  • Land use, zoning, and entitlement litigation, including defending tax increment financing challenges, defending adjacent landowner claims, litigating easements and land use rights, and defending condemnation proceedings
  • All aspects of commercial real estate litigation, including sale and acquisition disputes, lease enforcement, title disputes, and landlord and tenant disputes
  • Commercial debt enforcement, including commercial foreclosures and machinery/equipment repossession
