Civil Litigation

The term “civil litigation” covers a wide variety of legal matters. Civil litigation matters extend to any court or administrative process other than certain Probate Court, family law, and criminal matters. The phrase encompasses contracts litigation, and equity proceedings by way of injunctive relief requests, petitions in aid of claims or judgments, and countless other matters for which the sole remedy presents itself as being a court or administrative agency. Members of our Firm appear in State Courts of every level (Supreme Court, Superior Court, Circuit Court, District Division and Probate Division). Our lawyers routinely appear before the Federal Courts (United States District Court for the District of New Hampshire and First Circuit Court of Appeals). To the extent litigation must first be concluded before a state or federal agency, our practice includes administrative proceedings. Examples of civil litigation include employee claims, shareholder and partner disputes, dissolution processes, and contracts litigation. The categorical list of matters included for your consideration is not all-encompassing. We urge you to consult with us on matters which you may initially believe require civil litigation representation. 

Whether you are a plaintiff or defendant, hiring a qualified civil litigation attorney is crucial in achieving a successful outcome in your case.

State and Federal Court Trials and Appeals

Our civil litigation attorneys work closely with clients to evaluate their potential claims or defenses related to the commercial, professional, employment, and personal dispute that is the subject of litigation.   We represent clients before administrative agencies, alternative dispute resolution proceedings such as mediation or arbitration, jury or court trials in State and Federal Court as well as proceedings before Appellate Courts. We help clients prepare their cases and counsel them on steps and procedures involved.  A skilled civil litigation attorney can help clients leverage their negotiating position to reach a beneficial settlement which may be the most appropriate and economical manner of handling certain cases.  However, when a dispute cannot be resolved satisfactorily, taking a case to court may be the best or only option.

When required, our civil litigation attorneys will engage and work closely with experts including investigators, accountants, economic impact analysts, and other relevant professionals.
