Watkins & Eager’s commercial litigation clients include local, national and international companies as well as entrepreneurs and executives.  We are known for using creative negotiation and ADR to achieve cost-effective, prompt, and positive results, earning a First Tier rank in Commercial Litigation from Chambers U.S.A.

Our commercial litigation experiences include antitrust lawsuits; contract disputes;  representing directors and officers; investor, shareholder and partnership disputes; ERISA/employee benefits;  banking and lender liability litigation; creditors’ rights; insurance and investment sales claims; IP, trade secrets, and non-compete suits;  securities arbitration; and tax litigation representing taxpayers and taxing authorities.  Our clients hale from diverse industries including manufacturing, franchisors, real estate developers, governments, oil and gas/ energy producers, utilities, banks and brokers, pharmaceutical, health care and medical, retail and hospitality, transportation and logistics, technology and communications, fiduciaries, and closely-held businesses.

A wise litigation strategy must be compatible with a client's business model and goals. In the business arena, preservation of relationships and business reputation can be more important than winning a single dispute.  Watkins & Eager lawyers work closely with executives, business owners and in-house counsel to craft an end-game strategy and deliver positive results for every client.
