Whatever the magnitude, legal disputes make it difficult for your company's leadership to stay focused, keep your business competitive, and meet its operating goals. But with ALFA International’s worldwide network of experienced litigators by your side, your company can resolve commercial disputes effectively and efficiently, virtually everywhere you do business.
Business disputes and regulatory actions can arise from any quarter, at any time, regardless of a company’s size, industry, or geographic distribution. Suppliers, customers, partners, competitors, and regulators may suddenly become adversaries. Simply put, the success of your business depends upon the smooth workings of hundreds, if not thousands, of relationships, transactions, contracts, and agreements.
The attorneys of ALFA International’s Business Litigation Practice Group understand that effective dispute resolution includes forward-thinking, active guidance as well as timely, intelligent responses to emerging business risks, threats, and opportunities.
The attorneys at our member firms around the world draw on their local and international litigation experience to help clients develop business processes, negotiating skills, internal audit methods, and documentation practices that can minimize risks and improve competitive advantage. But if disputes do arise, our highly experienced lawyers develop effective solutions that enable clients to align business objectives with legal strategies.
Successful resolution of business disputes often requires industry-specific knowledge and experience. ALFA International’s Business Litigation Practice Group works closely with lawyers from other practice groups to provide coordinated, targeted legal counsel that minimizes unnecessary handoffs and takes full advantage of each attorney’s skills. By aligning client needs with the most effective, local resources, we help our clients keep their initiatives on track and on schedule. When issues escalate, your ALFA International attorneys are well-experienced and have the advantage of local knowledge in courtrooms across the United States and around the globe.
Specific areas of focus are detailed below. The group currently has a very robust Intellectual Property Subcommittee and their profiles can be accessed via the IP SUBCOMMITTEE document.
