Overview

Litigation

Cohen Todd Kite & Stanford’s Litigation Practice Group has one goal:  to obtain the best result for our clients in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible.  Because our attorneys recognize that litigation is expensive and time consuming, we focus on strategies that will resolve disputes expeditiously and serve the client’s best interests.  Our attorneys are skilled in obtaining positive resolution of disputes through negotiated agreements, arbitration, and mediation.   Where trial is inevitable, we rely on our depth of experience in both complex litigation and simple disputes to aggressively represent the client’s interest throughout discovery, trial and the appeals process.  Our Group members routinely represent both individual and commercial clients locally, regionally and nationwide in state and federal courts.  Consistent with Cohen Todd Kite & Stanford’s client-centered focus, we work with the client to develop and implement litigation strategy that is both appropriate for the particular dispute and acceptable to the client.
