Trial and Litigation
Meyers Nave’s Trial and Litigation Practice attorneys work to uphold public entities’ rights under the law and prevent plaintiffs from tapping into public money or thwarting a public entity’s plans for civic betterment. Our practice also includes a Commercial Litigation team that is focused on the dispute resolution needs that arise between private businesses as well as issues that may arise between public entities and private businesses. Our attorneys concentrate on resolving disputes early, favorably and cost-effectively, with minimal disruption to our clients’ daily operations. We use alternative avenues of dispute resolution, such as mediation or arbitration, when appropriate for the specific matter at issue and the client’s goals at stake, but we are very successful in litigation when necessary. Meyers Nave litigation attorneys obtain victories at both the trial and appellate level on many of our clients’ most complex, highest profile and strategically important cases (please click here).
Striving to uphold our clients’ rights in all areas of law, our attorneys represent and defend clients in every stage of litigation, from initial complaint, through discovery, motion practice, trial and appeal. Our experience encompasses pre-lawsuit settlement negotiations, responding to DOJ investigations, and the litigation of individual and class action lawsuits. We are also familiar with the plaintiff’s table, and take on the prosecution of matters for our clients, such as recoupment of fees for loan default, property damage, nuisance abatement and code enforcement violations.
