Commercial Litigation

Morrison & Foerster’s Commercial Litigation group represents clients in large domestic and international business disputes in courts and arbitration proceedings in the United States, Europe, and Asia. These cases often involve contract disputes and claims of commercial fraud and include, for example, procurement, franchise, construction, real estate, and commercial lending disputes, as well as business torts and bankruptcy adversary proceedings.

We have 500 litigators located on three continents around the world. Unlike most large law firms, we try and arbitrate cases on a regular basis for plaintiffs and defendants in many industries, including banking and financial services, communications, insurance, life sciences, real estate, professional services, technologies of all types, and transportation.

We provide strategic advice and appreciate that our clients have broad business needs and concerns to be taken into account in litigation and arbitration. We have a successful trial record handling fact-driven cases in complex commercial settings.

Clients we represent in commercial litigation matters include Echostar Communications, Ernst & Young, Grant Thornton LLP, The Hartford, Honeywell International Inc., Quixtar Inc., Sega Corporation, Travelers Insurance Company, and United Parcel Service, Inc.
