Litigation and Alternative Dispute ResolutionWe have an active litigation practice, and our attorneys practice in state and federal courts at all levels and regularly appear in court proceedings in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. We also appear frequently in actions in other parts of the country.
We handle complex as well as routine civil litigation matters of virtually all kinds, including cases involving business disputes, commercial transactions, construction contracts, commercial leases, landlord/tenant actions, collection matters, computer software contracts and other high-technology contracts, consulting agreements, real estate contracts and disputes, business contracts, estates and trusts, personal injury, and professional malpractice claims.
We also have extensive experience in the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) techniques, including mediation and arbitration, to avoid litigation. Doug Bregman and Geoffrey Hervey have each previously served as the Chair of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Section of the Bar Association of Montgomery County, and the firm is recognized as a leader in mediation and other forms of ADR. Doug Bregman has an active mediation practice, and he is recognized by the business and legal communities, as well as the Courts, as a mediator with exceptional skill and a proven track record.
