We're Trial Lawyers.
Markowitz Herbold is a litigation law firm that tries high-stakes business disputes for individuals, companies and state, local and regional governments, to juries, judges and arbitrators. We are known by our peers for resolving complicated and challenging cases.
The firm is based in Portland, Oregon, and our lawyers practice before state and federal trial courts in the Northwest and across the country.
We’ve earned our reputation as an “outstanding boutique firm” by delivering results: Multi-million dollar jury verdicts, successful settlements of “unresolvable” cases, and fierce defenses of difficult claims. Our courtroom savvy is widely known. Clients and even other lawyers often hire us, sometimes on the eve of trial, to take over as lead counsel or provide strategic advice.
We Have an Outstanding Reputation.
We have a stellar reputation and the reason is simple – our people. Our lawyers and staff are known for their superior litigation skills, commitment to excellence, and passion for client service. It’s why our clients say we are “singularly amazing.” More than 25 percent of our lawyers are listed in Best Lawyers in America, more than half have been recognized by Super Lawyers, and half served as federal court or state appellate judicial law clerks.
We're a Litigation Powerhouse.
Due to our size and structure, we have all the capabilities and resources of litigation departments in large law firms. At the same time, we're nimble and flexible. In particular, we look for creative and often lower-cost ways for clients to resolve legal conflicts.
We represent plaintiffs as well as defendants in business disputes. Experience on both sides helps us better anticipate and counter our opponents' strategies.
Since our founding in 1983, we have grown into a formidable, cohesive litigation team. We cover all the bases in business litigation. Our trial and advocacy skills are second to none. Experienced specialists handle research and writing, and it shows in the strength of our arguments and the quality of our briefs.
