Mitigating Legal Risk in Today’s Business Climate – a Litigator’s Lens

We are experienced commercial litigators. We have successfully guided businesses through disputes touching all aspects of their operations – from prosecuting and defending against trade secret theft claims and business tort claims, to litigating contract disputes, defending against consumer claims, and handling employment claims. We dig into the law, and practice before the courts that actually interpret and apply it. This work gives us a unique risk mitigation perspective.

SBW is excited to launch a new series drawing from our work in the trenches to help businesses and entrepreneurs stay ahead of the game. In it, we will spotlight issues for businesses of all sizes to consider as new technology emerges and the way work is done continues to evolve. Check out our first thread here:
