WSMB handles a wide range of commercial disputes, including employment and IP-related matters. Our litigators handle all phases of a case, from investigation, commencement, discovery, preliminary and dispositive motions, to trial and appeals. We handle both jury and bench trials in state and federal courts.
Our attorneys also represent clients before various domestic and international arbitral tribunals. WSMB attorneys have appeared before the AAA, FINRA, ICSID, JAMS, the CPR Institute, the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce and the International Court of Justice in The Hague.
Several WSMB attorneys are skilled mediators. Usher Winslett has served for more than 15 years as a court-appointed mediator in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, assisting parties in resolving a wide variety of disputes.
We work with our clients to reach the most effective outcome, both as to result and cost. We recognize the burden of prosecuting or defending a legal proceeding and we strive to minimize our clients’ time and expense through negotiated settlements, whether prior to, or after the commencement of, legal proceedings.
