Holland & Knight’s Litigation Practice, one of the largest in the United States, has been successful in achieving results in a wide range of controversy work – federal and state, trial and appellate, international and domestic, and through arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. Our litigation attorneys regularly handle complex commercial litigation, class actions, international litigation, securities litigation, bankruptcy and creditors' rights matters, product liability and mass disaster cases, white collar and enforcement defense cases, and labor and employment matters. We apply our deep experience to handling matters in certain key industries, including construction, government contracts, aviation and maritime.
Whether you are a large, medium-sized or small company, we are committed to your satisfaction through responsiveness and the value of the services we provide.
We understand the importance of choosing the right lawyer and the best law firm to handle litigation, or controversies that could result in litigation. Our litigation lawyers have extensive case-handling experience, and can draw on broad subject matter knowledge throughout the firm as necessary to support your positions. We have the resources to properly staff cases, and the sensitivity to avoid overstaffing. We look for approaches that will be most effective, taking account of economic and non-economic objectives. Our services include:
With offices across the U.S., and international offices and relationships that give us a global reach, we are able to mobilize wherever and whenever you need us. Working with our litigation practice means partnering with problem solvers who have gone toe-to-toe with some of the toughest adversaries in the country. Further, our trial and appellate litigators – including former judges, prosecutors and regulatory officials – work collaboratively with other Holland & Knight practice teams to provide the most informed and efficient representation possible.
Our technology (including RealPractice) gives us the ability to retrieve extensive work product saved in our system, increasing efficiency and decreasing costs. In recent years, fueled by the December 2006 e-discovery amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, e-discovery has transformed litigation and created new risks – including default judgments, adverse inference instructions and imposition of fines and attorneys' fees – for companies who are not prepared to meet their obligations to identify, preserve and produce electronically stored information (ESI).
Holland & Knight has a dedicated E-Discovery Team to help you manage those risks intelligently and efficiently. We will guide you through the critical early e-discovery process, and follow through by cost-effectively managing the collection and production of ESI. In addition, our e-discovery attorneys work closely with our Global Compliance Team to design and implement records management programs. Smart records management helps reduce data management and storage costs and, at the same time, achieve e-discovery readiness. With this coordinated approach, we can help you reduce risk and ease the cost and burden of future e-discovery activities.
Our ultimate goal is two-fold: to create opportunities for you to prevail in your dispute, and to provide you with the value that results from having an efficient, seamlessly integrated team for addressing any case or controversy on which we are engaged.
