Clayman & Rosenberg LLP seeks to resolve our clients’ commercial disputes with a maximum of efficiency and a minimum of risk.  As the cost of litigation continues to rise, cost effectiveness is increasingly an integral part of the overall approach to any matter.  Innovative negotiating strategies can achieve valuable results without the expense of trial.  At the same time, our adversaries’ awareness that Clayman & Rosenberg LLP is not afraid to take a case to trial provides a huge negotiating advantage.

Clayman & Rosenberg LLP attorneys are routinely consulted concerning commercial disputes both before and after litigation has been commenced.  Where possible, we endeavor to assist clients in resolving these disputes without resort to costly and distracting lawsuits.  The key to achieving pre-litigation resolutions is often a combination of rapid mastery of the relevant facts and the development of imaginative solutions that work for opposing parties.
