Commercial Litigation

Gordon Arata Montgomery Barnett represents business clients of all sizes in litigation that is as diverse and complex as their markets and customers. The business owners, executives and corporate counsel whom we advise are acutely aware that litigation can affect their company’s commercial practices, bottom line, and, in some cases, continued existence. Clients repeatedly turn to our commercial litigators because of the history of successes they have achieved with our representation.

We represent clients as plaintiffs and as defendants in federal and state courts, in arbitration and before administrative agencies. We strive to deliver value in reaching the most desirable results for our client. While this is often best accomplished through motion practice or resolution of a case before trial, our attorneys will aggressively take cases into court, before a judge or jury, to secure the best outcome for our clients.

Banks and financial institutions call on us to represent them in a variety of complicated litigation matters, such as those involving negotiable instruments, letters of credit and security documents. We have also represented financial institutions and their officers in claims related to lender liability, banking practices, insider stock trading and embezzlement.

Gordon Arata Montgomery Barnett is nationally known for defense of consumer class actions, having successfully represented clients in the tobacco, securities, oil and gas, insurance, retail, public utility, pharmaceutical, vitamin and telecommunications industries as they have faced nationwide and statewide class litigation.

On behalf of owners, contractors and subcontractors, we have handled large and complex construction actions involving public and private works, and we are   experienced with claim preparation and defense, scheduling issues, and disruption and delay claims.
