Commercial Litigation

OSR attorneys represent regional, national and international clients in state and federal courts. Our attorneys also work with international lawyers and firms with whom we have forged strong relations to represent our clients before foreign courts and tribunals. Commercial disputes, unfair competition, contract actions, securities litigation, property damage, banking and contested estate matters and construction litigation are just some of the commercial areas in which OSR attorneys regularly litigate. Our attorneys understand that litigation is an unfortunate but sometimes necessary part of our clients’ business. By understanding our clients, we litigate cases within the context of and specifically to achieve our clients’ business goals.

Litigation, Arbitration and Dispute Resolution

The core of OSR is litigation and dispute resolution. Our attorneys are trial-tested and skilled in all aspects of court, arbitration and appellate proceedings. We approach every stage of a litigation matter as if going to trial or hearing. This model allows us to be more fully prepared and to aggressively seek the most favorable resolution for our clients, whether it is obtaining a verdict after trial or an award after hearing, prevailing upon motion practice or negotiating a favorable settlement. Our creative yet practical approach allows us to employ the most aggressive litigation tactics without losing focus of your goals and the context in which you are comfortable achieving them. Our insight and experience combine with our propensity for straight talk allowing us to cut to the chase sooner than you might expect.
