Solutions in a Competitive World

Commercial Litigation

What distinguishes our litigation practice is our relentless, responsive, creative, and cost-effective approach to litigation and dispute resolution. We are litigators. Unlike some institutional firms, Sperduto Thompson & Gassler attorneys have the ability to take their cases all the way to a jury verdict. Our ability to try cases, and try jury cases, allows our clients to leverage that capability to achieve early and successful negotiated outcomes. Our lawyers also have broad appellate experience in state and federal courts nationwide, and take pride in the quality of our appellate advocacy, both in briefing and in oral argument. Absent settlement, litigation has a winner and loser. We know how to win. Clients choose Sperduto Thompson & Gassler for better outcomes on major cases at better prices.

We have a wide array of experience. In financial services, the Firm has represented corporate directors in fiduciary duty shareholder claims and minority shareholders against majority owners. The Firm successfully represented the former minority owners of a company in their takeover of a biomedical startup. Our attorneys successfully represented a developer in multiple challenges to the largest lease in GSA history. Our Insurance Coverage practice is characterized by decades of insurance litigation experience across a wide range of coverage lines. Our burgeoning Construction practice has represented regional, national, and international owners, developers, and major contractors on projects valued in excess of $1,000,000,000. Through our International practice, the Firm has represented clients from across the globe, including clients in France, Switzerland, Germany, Israel, Russia, Singapore, Bahrain, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom.

The Firm’s collective talent translates well in both the boardroom and the courtroom. Virtually all of the Firm’s litigation is complex commercial litigation. We invite you to explore our other Practice Areas for more specific information about the Firm’s litigation capabilities and experience.
