Shackelford is a regional law firm with a national litigation practice. We have earned a reputation for precise and meticulous handling of complex, high-exposure business disputes on both sides of the docket. Our commercial litigation team regularly represents companies and individuals facing contentious disputes of all sizes. These disputes may involve contract disputes and disagreements between business partners, as well as allegations of fraud and unfair competition. Our team has represented clients in a wide variety of disputes – relating to finance and investments, banking, oil and gas, real estate, entertainment, professional services, telecommunications, healthcare, securities, pharmaceuticals, consumer products and insurance.
We represent all types and sizes of business clients. While we often represent large companies, we’re not afraid to take on larger adversaries. Our lawyers help clients deal with breach of contract, trade secret, tortious interference, breach of fiduciary duty and other complex business tort claims. We are prepared and willing to try a case to the very end - if that is necessary. Due to our thorough preparation and resolve, this is often unnecessary, and we can help negotiate an efficient resolution. Many commercial and business cases can be resolved short of trial.
Litigation can be a stressful event for a client. Should litigation become a reality, Shackelford lawyers work closely with clients and collaborate through each phase of the process. Because of the firm’s size and structure, our trial attorneys are able to focus on the smallest details, positions and options in the litigation process while assuring that clients receive solid value for this level of involvement. No one lawsuit is identical to another and the facts, timing and the principals all affect the strategies to be considered.
When trial is necessary, clients can count on meticulous preparation and our capacity for hard work. Clients recognize that we are a focused, like-minded team of trial lawyers and litigators, well-trained and experienced in managing cases efficiently and effectively. We help business clients by using litigation and dispute resolution to achieve their business objectives, whether as plaintiffs or defendants. Our experience spans virtually every aspect of doing business, including:
- Real Estate
- Breach of Contract
- Professional Liability
- Regulatory Disputes
- Business Torts
- Unfair Competition and Non-competes
- General Business Matters
- False Claims Act
