Commercial Litigation

Coppersmith Brockelman handles complex matters creatively, efficiently, and effectively. Understanding the client’s goals, developing a game plan early on and successfully executing it are the hallmarks of our litigation practice. In fact, it is an honor and significant point of pride that much of our work is referred to us by fellow counsel, both local and national.

Our litigators are seasoned, diverse, and pragmatic; we all hail from large firms, have top-tier credentials and are accustomed to working on complex matters. Many clients come to us because our partners take a personal interest in their cases, rolling up their sleeves and delegating to associates only when it makes sense for effectively handling the matter. Coppersmith Brockelman is the quintessential example of large-firm expertise with boutique-firm service. Experience includes:

  • Appearing in high-stakes cases involving contract disputes, breach of fiduciary duty, and business torts.
  • Representing directors and officers and defending securities-related claims.
  • Representing broker dealers and registered representatives in investigations brought by the SEC, FINRA, and state regulators.
  • Defending law firms against claims for malpractice, malicious prosecution, and abuse of process.
  • Serving as lead counsel in the defense of numerous class actions involving, among other things, lending practices, antitrust violations, telecommunications issues, and securities claims. We are also experienced in litigation involving shareholder rights as well as the dissolution of corporations and partnerships.

We have expertise representing plaintiffs and defendants in a wide range of commercial litigation and arbitration matters. Further, Coppersmith Brockelman is one of the state’s most active and well-respected firms in the litigation of election, political, health care, and employment disputes.
