Areas of Practice
Civil litigation is a legal dispute between two or more parties that seek money damages or specific performance rather than criminal sanctions. A lawyer who specializes in civil litigation is known as a “litigator” or “trial lawyer.” Lawyers who practice civil litigation represent parties in trials, hearings, arbitrations and mediations before administrative agencies, foreign tribunals and federal, state and local courts.
Crosby & Crosby, PLC, has earned a reputation for successfully resolving, managing and trying multi-party and complex claims (including class actions) involving business-to-business disputes, breach of commercial contracts (private and government), real estate, unfair trade practices, business dissolutions, securities, intellectual property, fraud, lender liability, leveraged buyouts, directors and officers, and other business claims.
No one litigation strategy fits every case. So at Crosby & Crosby, PLC, we pride ourselves on designing strategies that make sense for the particular client and matter. For example, wherever appropriate, we craft pretrial dispositive motions designed to avoid the high cost of discovery and trial altogether. Positioning a case for mediation and advantageous settlement is also an important part of our overall approach to litigation. Some matters, of course, do not settle and cannot be resolved by dispositive motions. In that event, we have an outstanding record of winning at trial.
