Litigation

If you are a business owner in a legal dispute with a vendor, client or competitor, you know how stressful and disruptive these conflicts can be to your day-to-day operations. Whether the dispute is based on a contract, tort or intellectual property issue, Saper Law can help.

Litigation is generally seen as a last resort. Often, parties in a dispute, either voluntarily or via court order, turn to alternative dispute resolution. Our attorneys are experienced with mediation and arbitration, thus helping our clients avoid the cost and stress of in-court litigation.

Sometimes litigation in court is unavoidable. Fortunately, Saper Law’s attorneys have a successful track record in the courtroom–and a reputation for making the process as painless as possible.

From copyright and trademark infringement to defamation and right-of-publicity litigation, as well as contract breach and responding to subpoenas, Saper Law is here to help you with your litigation needs.
