The majority of the litigation that we handle involves complex commercial disputes, whether they arise under common law, statute or regulation. Our attorneys seek a positive resolution of our clients’ cases, in federal or state court, in administrative forums, and in alternative dispute resolution. Stoel Rives’ commercial litigators represent entities and individuals across all industries and stages of corporate growth.
We provide regional litigation services for a number of national companies and also handle a wide variety of cases for other clients with unique litigation needs. Our litigation work takes us across the country and around the world, though we have a particular focus within the footprint of our offices.
Stoel Rives integrates attorneys who are knowledgeable about your industry and relevant substantive areas of the law into its commercial litigation teams. These individuals bring expertise to help our trial litigators best resolve your case –as do our appellate specialists. And we keep an eye on costs, running lean litigation teams who understand you are not in business to fund endless lawsuits.
Stoel Rives litigation teams manage their cases with the latest industry-standard tools, including CaseMap and TextMap, and they are supported by our Litigation Technology Services (LTS) and E-Discovery solutions such as Relativity. In an effort to reduce paper use, we manage our deposition transcripts electronically through TextMap. When presenting in court, the litigation team has access to Sanction or Trial Director, the two best tools currently available. This integration of experience, a dedicated LTS staff and “best of breed” tools allow our litigation teams to reduce costs by properly managing the case and data throughout the litigation process.
