Litigation & Alternative Dispute Resolution
RLR prides itself on its dispute resolution capabilities, offering “big-firm” litigation expertise and experience with the efficiencies and responsiveness of small-firm practice. RLR’s litigation and alternative dispute resolution practice includes matters relating to corporations, commercial law and trade issues, real estate foreclosures, construction, securities, banking, libel, entertainment, copyright, trademark, employment, discrimination, civil rights, labor, insurance, creditors’ rights, civil RICO, and accounting matters, domestically and internationally.
Clients routinely consult RLR in anticipation of potential disputes, and the firm often counsels its clients on how to avoid litigation and find creative resolutions to seemingly intractable controversies. When litigation or arbitration becomes necessary, however, either defensively or offensively, RLR’s litigators work with their clients to plan and implement a dispute-resolution strategy appropriate to the nature of the dispute, always keeping in mind clients’ business needs and goals.
RLR litigators have vast experience in the federal and state courts throughout the country, at both the trial and the appellate levels, and have appeared before arbitration panels, including the American Arbitration Association (AAA), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), and private industry tribunals. Many of these actions have involved emergency relief, where on short notice the firm has been required to obtain, or defend against applications for, injunctive relief.
