Civil Litigation

Twitchell and Rice, LLP

Today's litigious society presents major challenges for businesses and individuals. Sometimes businesses and individuals are sued for circumstances which are beyond their control. At other times, clients have no alternative but to file a lawsuit to protect assets or enforce their rights. Twitchell and Rice, LLP has more than a century of experience in successfully representing the interests of clients who are involved in court proceedings.

Twitchell and Rice, LLP conducts civil litigation in federal and state courts, as well as various alternative dispute resolution forums. In addition, we counsel clients when disputes arise, prior to actual litigation, in an effort to achieve early resolution that avoids litigation altogether, at the same time, planning ahead for the best advantage in the event that litigation ensues.

We handle matters involving, but not limited to, environmental law, trust and estate disputes, partnership and corporate disputes, employment law, shareholder suits, unfair trade and competitive business practices, contract disputes, trade secret disputes and real property disputes.
