High-stakes litigation

A lawsuit can devastate a company.  Whether it’s a vulnerable start-up, or an established business, sometimes a company’s survival depends on the cost and outcome of a single lawsuit.  We call these “Bet-the-Company” cases, and most of them are highly confidential in nature. 

Bet-the-Company cases require a different type of analysis of risk and reward beyond day-to-day commercial litigation. They are complicated, and many times involve multiple parties and complex discovery.

When a company’s very existence depends on victory, clients shouldn’t go to trial with an attorney who’s learning on the job. Markowitz Herbold attorneys are seasoned trial lawyers who know how to run a case efficiently and present a winning argument. 

Clients throughout the Northwest and across the country, turn to us when they cannot afford to lose.  We have a strong track record for successful outcomes when the stakes are high.
