Practice/Industry Group Overview
With over 100 lawyers, Mintz Levin’s Litigation practice has the breadth and depth to provide high-quality, cost-effective litigation and strategic counseling to our clients. Our litigators have appeared in trial and appellate courts and arbitration proceedings across the country (in all 48 continental states and the District of Columbia) as well as in international arbitrations.
Clients range from individuals and closely-held corporations to Fortune 100 companies, including businesses in the banking, insurance, communications, real estate, construction, computer technology, investment, healthcare and life sciences, biotechnology, and pharmaceutical industries. Mintz Levin’s reputation as a go-to firm for high-stakes litigation has been sealed by numerous significant litigation victories.
Our successes are a direct result of the high quality of our people. Mintz Levin litigators have been recognized for excellence by the American College of Trial Lawyers, by Chambers, Benchmark, and by Law & Politics (in its annual designation of Super Lawyers in the cities in which Mintz Levin has offices). We also pride ourselves on providing the best possible training and supervision to our associates so that we can maximize the value they provide to our clients.
Experience + Innovation + Drive = Results
Mintz Levin’s litigation practice provides clients with innovative approaches, experienced advocacy, and the substantive expertise necessary to handle a broad range of business problems. Guided by a solid understanding of our clients’ core objectives, our litigators focus on winning efficiently and with accountability. Our pretrial, discovery, trial, and appellate efforts are designed to solve clients’ problems, not prolong them.
We deeply appreciate that the best win is an early win, particularly in high-stakes litigation. But we also understand that no matter how diligent our efforts may be to dispose of a case before going to trial, the most forceful strategy for resolving a case quickly is to let opponents know that we stand ready—if necessary—to win the case at trial. Our trial record unequivocally sends that message.
In litigation, as in everything else we do, we combine an aggressive drive with a strong sense of how to serve our clients. We appreciate that promptly answering our clients’ questions can be as important as properly cross-examining the client’s adversary. From devising a sound strategy and implementing it in a way that makes sense, to explaining our investment of resources in that strategy, we remain accountable to our clients and receptive to new ways to meet their particular needs. Commitment to these principles, fortified by the ingenuity and experience to deliver on that commitment, distinguishes our Litigation practice.
Winning in the court of public opinion is often as important for our clients as winning in the courtroom itself. As a result, our team includes experienced public relations professionals who work with the client and the litigation team to formulate a successful strategy to manage the flow of information and advance the client’s public relations objectives.
