Commercial Litigation

The prospect of litigation can be unsettling for any company. Along with possible adverse results and costs associated with a loss there can be other serious costs to a business’ productivity, and even to its reputation. In these “high stakes” situations, you need an ally with the experience and resources who will represent you in an effective and efficient manner. The culture of the Miller Thomson’s Commercial Litigation Group is to provide value and a sound approach targeted at achieving your litigation goals. With over 125 lawyers in our Group across the country, we are experienced in litigating — and winning — cases in virtually all areas of general commercial litigation. Our focus on specialized areas of litigation allows us to involve the right people to solve the problem at hand, and to work across disciplines when needed.
