Business Litigation

Experienced Baltimore, Maryland Business Litigation Attorneys

In the course of their combined business litigation experience spanning more than half a century, the seasoned complex civil litigation attorneys at West & West, LLC have extensive experience representing all types of entities from Fortune 100 companies to sole proprietorships; from multi-national corporations to the mom and pop business on the corner. The extremely close relationships they have forged with many of their business clients over the years combined with in-house experience at one of Baltimore’s largest companies allows them the unique ability to approach the representation of businesses mindful of both the necessary steps to implement a successful legal strategy and the practical concerns and issues being faced by in-house counsel and senior executives at larger companies, as well as by the owners of smaller companies and family run companies. They seek effective legal strategies that make business sense.

Large Firm Sophistication – Small Firm Values

When you hire West & West, you are getting the best of both worlds as their unique practice melds the expertise and sophistication of a large law firm with the accessibility and more reasonable cost structure of a smaller firm. At West & West, every single aspect of your matter will be handled by one of their three experienced partners. Accordingly, companies that engage West & West will reap the benefits of West & West’s large firm capabilities, while West & West’s more reasonable cost structure will have far less of an impact on the bottom line than large firm representation, giving many smaller companies a level of representation that they might not otherwise be able to afford.
