Litigation

MDM&C’s litigation practice includes both trial and appellate work in the following areas: commercial disputes and business torts, insurance defense, directors and officers defense, insurance coverage, environmental, fidelity and surety, product liability and toxic tort, malpractice, errors and omissions, construction, private and public contract disputes, health care, workers’ compensation, labor and employment, civil rights, trade regulation, antitrust, intellectual property, franchise, real estate, banking, pension, probate, and white-collar criminal defense.

One of the most varied areas of the Firm’s litigation practice involves insurance defense and coverage, which includes matters spanning the complete range of insurance interests, from industrial accidents and premises liability to insurance coverage disputes and bad faith claims. Our insurance defense practice also involves extensive experience with suits alleging wrongful discharge, sexual harassment, and other claims in the emerging area of business torts. In the area of environmental insurance coverage litigation, the Firm has acted as national coordinating counsel for a major insurance company and as regional counsel for numerous others. Our Firm regularly handles a wide range of sophisticated commercial litigation in areas that include contract disputes, construction claims, employment disputes, and commercial torts such as fraud, tortious interference, and civil RICO violations. In the area of white-collar criminal defense, the Firm represents individuals and corporations in federal and state grand jury investigations into possible violations of criminal law.

While our Firm is pleased to be recognized nationally for our efforts in complex litigation, we are also equipped to handle smaller litigated matters with equal efficiency and zeal. Our trial attorneys are regularly asked to serve as counsel even in jurisdictions where MDM&C does not have a principal office.  Our collective experience has consistently allowed us to develop winning case strategies both in and out of the courtroom.
