Commercial Litigation

At Forman Holt, our commercial litigators are as skilled in business counseling as they are in litigation. We understand that every commercial litigation matter has both a legal and business dimension.

We also recognize that litigation is both expensive and time consuming. Therefore, we advise our clients of the risks inherent in litigation and any alternatives to the litigation process. Sometimes, however, disputes can only be resolved through court intervention. In these instances, Forman Holt’s litigators are known for their vigorous and aggressive representation.

Solving the complexities of a client’s case is our goal in every case.
We will get the job done efficiently and within budget.

You can trust that our litigators are accomplished in the discovery process, at taking depositions, in arguing motions, during settlement negotiations, at trial, on appeal, and in postjudgment collection. Our attorneys routinely appear in both state and federal courts throughout the United States. We conduct cases efficiently but thoroughly, while keeping our clients informed at all relevant states of the process.

We have extraordinary success rate in obtaining judgments and associated remedies for our clients. However, a judgment does not always ensure that the judgment holder will be paid. Our attorneys capable use both pre-judgment and post-judgment procedures to levy assets and collect judgments, to enforce security interest, to safeguard and liquidate collateral and to obtain injunctive relief and appointments of receivers and examiners.

We do not give up until we have exhausted all possible avenues of collection.

Our skilled commercial litigators are ready to address your business problems with passion, creativity and insight. Because of our commercial experience, we find innovative business solutions that other attorneys might overlook in a litigation context. We work closely with our clients to define both legal and business objectives. We then deliver on these strategies in a thoughtful and timely manner.
