Trial Lawyers.

Seigfreid Bingham’s trial lawyers have built their reputation not as “litigators” but as lawyers who actually try cases. Our Trial and Dispute Resolution Group is comprised of lawyers who are experienced and qualified to handle disputes from jury trials and arbitrations to administrative hearings and appeals. Only with this type of trial experience can the client expect to receive the best possible outcome.

Seigfreid Bingham’s Trial Group.

Our Trial Group has handled almost every type of business and commercial dispute. Our attorneys have considerable experience in a wide range of business disputes, from defending class actions, business tort litigation, partnership and shareholder disputes to employment claims, construction and real estate, intellectual property, trade secret and non-compete matters. Our Trial Group also handles defense of sports and entertainment, transportation, banking, and personal injury matters. Our trial attorneys have extensive training and experience in trial and appellate advocacy.

Experience.

The Seigfreid Bingham Trial Group handles a wide range of major and significant civil disputes facing individuals and businesses, whether resolved by jury trial, bench trial, arbitration, mediation or informal settlement. We regularly represent diverse businesses of all sizes, including private and publicly traded companies, for-profit and not-for-profit entities, small start-ups and major corporations, domestic and international, and for-profit and not-for-profit entities in multiple industries. The Seigfreid Bingham Trial Group has experience representing individuals and corporations in “bet-the-company litigation” across multiple industries and in state and federal jurisdictions throughout the United States.  We have tried cases involving large business disputes (re: complex databases), civil RICO, fraud, breach of trust indenture, defense of trucking claims, intellectual property, financial services, construction, real estate, employment, wage and hour, insurance, banking, manufacturing, tort claims, health care, and agriculture.

Early assessment and resolution.

Although going to trial for our clients is our passion, we recognize that disputes often need to be resolved in a manner short of trial. As a part of every engagement, we counsel our clients on the best strategies to avoid litigation where possible. If litigation is inevitable, we work closely with our clients to devise a strategy to maximize the possibility of successful early resolution and handle the matter in an effective and cost efficient manner. This process includes a thorough analysis of the client’s objectives, constraints and the strategic importance of all relevant issues both at the beginning of the dispute and throughout the case.
