Litigation & Disputes




Business & Government-Regulatory Litigation

Business disputes frequently arise with suppliers, customers, lenders, insurers, competitors, and all sorts of unforeseeable entities. These disputes may concern contractual relationships, or involve business torts such as fraud, unlawful interference with contracts or business relationships, unfair competition, deceptive trade practices, antitrust or competition violations, among others. 

In addition, state and federal regulatory agencies may initiate investigations in the ordinary course of business or bring enforcement actions in more extreme situations.  

Knowing how to engage these entities tactfully can be the difference between a smooth audit and years of disruptive interactions with government agencies. 

To these issues, Bellwether brings experience from a broad range of disputes and litigation, handling all aspects from initial case strategy to final disposition, in matters involving: antitrust, False Claims Act, RICO, false advertising, products liability, trade secrets, fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, property rights, consumer protection, commercial contracts, among others.

General Civil Litigation & Appellate Practice

With broad experience handling a variety of litigation matters, Bellwether assists clients with litigation beyond the business and commercial arena. In main part, this because I recognize a duty to leverage my experience in prosecuting matters necessary to expose issues of public interest.

This includes cases involving civil rights, which often require complicated legal analysis to determine when, how, and to what extent civil rights have been violated. This also includes matters involving protections to safeguard individuals that have been exposed to dangerous and defective products. 

​In vetting and prosecuting such matters, diligence and knowledgeable legal counsel is paramount, and Bellwether is committed to evaluating the law, understanding the full story, and taking necessary legal steps to protect both citizens against unlawful governmental actions, and individuals against institutional or company bad actions.

And in both business/regulatory matters, as well as civil matters, Bellwether brings strong briefing experience in handling appeals both in state and federal courts – in short: Bellwether remains your partner and counsel from start to finish.​
