A Legal Team That Meets Your Standards

A business confronted with litigation defense or prosecution has two primary concerns in selecting counsel. First, are they experienced and can they see a case through trial and an appeal if those become necessary? Second, can they achieve results in an efficient, cost-effective way? Peabody & Arnold understands these concerns and works with businesses in obtaining optimum resolutions to controversies.

Strategic, In and Out of the Courtroom

All our Business Litigation partners try cases in state and federal courts and before arbitration tribunals. We understand the cost, difficulty and uncertainty of litigation. This experience enables us to distinguish between those cases that may need to be tried to a conclusion, or aggressively litigated, and those – the majority of cases – that do not. We work with management to determine a realistic approach in light of business objectives. In every matter, we aim to get the best, most cost-effective results through creative business resolution, alternative dispute resolution, or when needed, a trial.

Our practice involves representation of clients in the technology, real estate, insurance, professional service, and sales industries.

Matters include:

  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Complex contract claims
  • Insurance coverage and bad faith claims
  • Unfair trade practice claims
