Legal 500 2010 - Commercial Litigation

The course of business doesn’t always run smooth. And, when it doesn’t, there can be few more satisfying thoughts than dragging your opponent through the courts and being granted punitive damages. In this day and age, however, the talk is all of “dispute resolution” – which, though perhaps less satisfying than having your day in court, is likely to cost everyone a lot less in the long run. Either way, and whatever side of a lawsuit you find yourself on, the firms below are the Legal 500’s top players. Just hope you don’t receive an unexpected letter on their headed notepaper.
