Dealing with legally and factually complex cases requires a strategy which simplifies their complexities and allows a presentation to the decider (judge or jury) which is easy to grasp. In order to accomplish this a thorough understanding of the dispute, as well as the context in which it arose, is a must.

Marvin Infinger concentrates his practice in the areas of business litigation and admiralty law. He also handles complex litigation including:

•Commercial cases
•Prosecution and defense of construction claims
•Admiralty claims
•Probate actions
•Intellectual property actions
•Municipal corporate actions

During his more than 30 years of practicing law, Marvin has also represented clients in non-administrative environmental damage actions and his experience spans the transportation, maritime, and hospitality, tourism, and recreation industries.

Marvin also served, at the request of the Chief Judge of the Federal District Court of South Carolina, as chair of the Advisory Committee under the Civil Justice Reform Act. In that role, he led the review and recommendation process that resulted in modifications of congressionally mandated practice rules.
