Strategic Business And Commercial Litigation
Plante & Hanley, P.C. devotes a great deal of its practice to complex commercial litigation across many industries. Our lawyers handle high-stakes litigation in state and federal courts throughout Vermont and New Hampshire, involving corporate governance issues, shareholder disputes, breaches of fiduciary duty, intentional and negligent misrepresentation, breaches of contract, multi-district litigation, and the application of consumer protection laws to business matters, to name a few. While Plante & Hanley, P.C. is often identified as a serious injury and medical malpractice firm, our lawyers devote substantial parts of their practices to commercial litigation.
When clients need urgent action, we seek preliminary injunctions and temporary restraining orders to protect their interests immediately, often while serving as local counsel in federal and state trial courts in Vermont and New Hampshire.
Trials, Appeals And Alternative Dispute Resolution
We understand the uncertainty and expense of litigation and the significant impact that a lawsuit can have on the bottom line. Our objective is always to protect our clients’ legal and business interests. We work with our clients to evaluate their goals and the potential costs, risks and rewards before bringing suit. We explore negotiated resolutions and alternative means of dispute resolution such as mediation and arbitration, but there are always some disputes that must be tried in court. Our clients rely on our extensive business litigation experience to protect and assert their interests in all phases of litigation including bench and jury trials and appeals.
