Businesses of all kinds turn to Thompson Hine with their most important and challenging business disputes. Unlike many large law firms, our practice is devoted exclusively to business litigation and includes experienced trial lawyers with notable courtroom victories on behalf of our clients. We evaluate legal and business problems from the dual perspective of trial lawyers and businesspeople and team closely with our clients to solve their problems. Thanks to our size and the breadth of our experience, we can cost-effectively handle virtually every kind of commercial dispute.
Our track record is proven and impressive. Thompson Hine has been recognized as "standout" and "prominently recognized" litigation firm in a 2010 survey of corporate counsel and C-level executives, conducted by The BTI Consulting Group.
Identifying risks and avoiding litigation are central to our practice. Whenever possible, we will pursue negotiation, alternative dispute resolution and other means to attain our client's desired end result. If such measures do not prove fruitful, we will be prepared to go to court to achieve their goals
We handle disputes as varied and complex as today's business world. For example, we represent major financial institutions in matters ranging from mortgage and securities fraud to ERISA and to fiduciary litigation. Business clients rely on us in corporate control contests, contract disputes, insurance disputes and class actions. Nationally recognized leaders in tax controversy, we represent many Fortune 250 companies before the IRS and, when necessary, in court. We also represent lawyers (including major law firms) and accountants in professional malpractice cases. Real estate developers and manufacturing companies across the country come to us to help achieve their business objectives. We counsel clients in internal and governmental investigations, defend white collar criminal issues, represent clients in antitrust and competition cases, and assist clients seeking to protect their patent, trademark, copyright and other intellectual property rights.
Approximately 100 of us handle matters like these and many others for our business clients. We are in court and at the settlement table every day, addressing and resolving our clients' most important concerns. We are proud to have earned our clients' trust and to have companies of all kinds turn to us with their most important and challenging disputes.
