Clayman & Rosenberg LLP seeks to resolve our clients’ commercial disputes with maximum efficiency and minimum risk.  As the cost of litigation continues to rise, cost effectiveness is increasingly an integral part of the overall approach to any matter.  Where possible, we utilize innovative negotiating strategies to achieve valuable results without the expense of trial.  At the same time, Clayman & Rosenberg LLP is always prepared to try the case; our adversaries’ awareness of that fact provides a huge negotiating advantage.

Clayman & Rosenberg LLP attorneys are routinely consulted concerning commercial disputes, both before and after litigation has commenced.  We assist clients in resolving these disputes without resorting to costly, time-consuming, and distracting lawsuits whenever feasible.  The key to achieving pre-litigation resolutions is often a combination of rapid mastery of the relevant facts and the development of imaginative solutions that work for opposing parties.
