Dispute Resolution – Litigation and Arbitration

Montgomery McCracken represents foreign companies and individuals in U.S. federal and state courts, as well as both U.S. and foreign concerns in arbitration, whether in the U.S. or elsewhere.   Our experience spans many different industries and involves matters ranging from business, competition and trade practices disputes, to business torts, intellectual property, class actions, products liability, contracts, counterfeit products, manufacturing issues, transportation disputes, maritime disasters and pollution, and beyond.

Further, litigation in the United States is often only part of litigation or potential litigation in which the client is involved elsewhere or even globally.  In these circumstances, we are called upon not only to handle the litigation here, but to advise the client and coordinate our efforts with those of the client and counsel abroad in the foreign proceedings.

Our experience in arbitrations is both in the United States and elsewhere, and under an array of arbitration rules or schemes.  Beyond handling the arbitrations, we have experience in then enforcing the awards in the various jurisdictions.

At Montgomery McCracken, we provide comprehensive, high-quality service tailored to meet the needs of each client.  We use our practical legal and business experience to acquire a clear understanding of each client’s goals and work closely with each client to realize those goals.
