Our Litigation Group recognizes that litigation is more than a legal issue for our clients — it's a major business problem. When disputes arise, we are sensitive to the demands of our client's business and are careful not to lose the business war while winning the litigation battle. We make it our goal to shape the resolution of a dispute to our client's business realities. This philosophy guides even our earliest involvement in the management of disputes, as we use Sullivan & Worcester's full capabilities to keep budding disputes from turning into major crises. When a negotiated resolution cannot be achieved, our early intervention can help to strengthen our ability to litigate the dispute to a successful resolution.
