Federal and State Litigators
Debtor Loan Defense
Suing banks and financial companies has been the backbone of our practice. Thus, we understand complex contracts, financial instruments, and property law. While our business litigation practice is not limited to these disputes, we regularly represent debtors in financial actions involving their creditors or bank.
We regularly see problems arising from one sentence or even one word out of a massive document or legal statute. For example, we tried one business litigation case (and won) over the meaning of one sentence in a lease agreement, dealing with whether the landlord or the tenant was responsible for certain improvements to the building. Our client, the tenant, successfully argued at business litigation trial that the improvements were to be provided by the landlord at no additional cost.
Areas of Business Litigation
Our particular areas of strength are in contract law, property law, financial instruments, and foreclosure defense. These all fall within the umbrella of civil litigation. We also regularly work with multiple state and federal statutory schemes.
Our appellate lawyers have a robust understanding of the state and federal appellate processes. We regularly practice before appellate courts as well as The United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Appellate practice is different than trial practice in the evidence used, the standards of review employed, as well as the arguments that have been preserved to raise on appeal. We understand appeals and would be happy to discuss your needs here.
Reasonable solutions can usually be obtained when the right incentives are in place and the parties have a healthy perspective of the conflict.
