Ferris & Britton is experienced and result-oriented in litigating business disputes. Litigation is more than going to trial, it includes an entire, structured process of clarifying issues, uncovering relevant facts and evaluating the relative strengths of competing claims. Many lawsuits are resolved without going to trial because the litigation process, when well-managed, brings issues into sharp focus, enabling the parties, with help and advice of counsel, to craft resolutions best suited to their objectives. Ferris & Britton employs a creative, practical and affordable approach to resolving business disputes. We are dedicated to finding effective, economical solutions to problems.

Our experience in all aspects of litigation includes expertise in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) approaches such as arbitration and mediation. ADR approaches can provide quick, private resolution to many business disputes. Additionally, ADR offers the ability to avoid the risk of a runaway jury, and rely on a decision-maker with special expertise about the matters in dispute.

Ferris & Britton has extensive litigation experience in both state and federal courts, including appellate courts. We are also highly skilled in administrative agency practice with such agencies as the CPUC, DFEH, EEOC, NLRB and ABC. We handle the most sensitive litigation related problems of businesses, including, but not limited to:

  • Contracts and related claims;
  • Employment termination and discrimination claims;
  • Business ownership disputes;
  • Antitrust and other unfair competition claims;
  • Regulatory disputes;
  • Tax claims; and
  • Broadband communication right of way matters.
