Sophisticated business owners demand responsiveness, value-based billing and exceptional advocacy; in short, lawyers who understand (and appreciate) the intricacies and real-time pressures of running a successful business. Denlea & Carton’s business litigation team has represented businesses large and small, in a variety of disputes including, but not limited to, breach of contract, theft of trade secrets, partnership dissolutions, unfair competition, employment matters, class actions and intellectual property. We’re just as proud to call the USTA, Heineken, AIG, and Time Warner Cable clients, as we are those privately held entities and entrepreneurs who prefer to maintain a lower profile.
Denlea & Carton LLP’s Commercial Litigation practice represents business owners, entrepreneurs, professional service companies, partnerships and corporations in a myriad of industries. We pride ourselves in learning the nuances of your business and then crafting an approach that resonates with a judge and jury. We believe effective advocacy starts with compelling storytelling. Every dispute has a protagonist and an antagonist, and requires a strong narrative and cogent story arc. Our ability to communicate (both in writing and orally) in a clear, crisp and concise manner is one of the hallmarks of our success, and has contributed to our recognition by US News & World Reports as one of the Best Law Firms for Commercial Litigation.
We also understand the need for value-based billing and creative fee arrangements. Toward that end, we have worked with business owners to structure fixed fee retentions; hybrid fee arrangements, including blended contingent and hourly fee engagements; reduced hourly retentions with a success fee; pure contingencies (with a multiplier for success) and phased litigation budgets. Our boutique size and judicious staffing allow us to ensure that our financial interests are mutually aligned with those of the business and that a return on your investment is a paramount consideration.
