Business Litigation and Trial Practice
Sophisticated Counsel and Representation
Knowledge, expertise and preparation are the keys to successful litigation. At AMG, we have assembled a team of highly skilled, proven, and experienced trial lawyers known for possessing the necessary substantive knowledge to effectively handle complex litigation, including multiparty, multijurisdictional cases. On a daily basis, we handle cases for domestic and international clients in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico courts, the United States District Court for the District of Puerto Rico, and before local and federal administrative and regulatory agencies. Our litigation department also provides complete appellate representation, arbitration, mediation and alternative dispute resolution in Puerto Rico.
Our lawyers can navigate the potential pitfalls of aggressive litigation, be it at deposition or during argumentative hearings. AMG's trial attorneys are ready and able to obtain the quick disposition of a complaint via thorough motion practice, and to negotiate a fair and cost-effective settlement when it benefits the client.
Because of our years of combined litigation practice experience, our attorneys have the ability and flexibility to provide high-quality and cost-effective legal representation to our wide array of demanding clients.
We understand our clients' strategies, goals and most importantly the problems posed by the challenges and risks of litigation. AMG trial attorneys are organized into litigation teams tailored to the specific necessities and complexities of each case, and these teams collaborate and work closely with the client during all phases of the litigation. Combined with the most advanced technology, our litigation and trial practice area delivers tenacious results-oriented service. We also help our clients to avoid or minimize the risks and burdens of litigation, and frequently negotiate disputes without the expense or uncertainty of litigation.
Successful litigation also hinges on effective case management. Under that axiom, our lawyers know the importance of strong motion practice, including when to file dispositive motions, how to oppose motions to dismiss and how to take and defend depositions. We are also keenly aware of the need to develop a rapport with judges and juries, which in the end will produce positive results for our clients.
As such, it is no surprise that our litigators represent a diverse client base in business litigation matters, including many Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies, as well as local companies and businesses of all sizes. This diversity has enabled us to strengthen our expertise in a wide range of industries, with all manner of complex business, civil and commercial disputes, including antitrust and trade regulation; class actions; land use; securities litigation; breach of contract; distribution, sales representation and franchising; mass torts; breach of fiduciary duties; corporate governance; shareholders disputes and derivative suits; insurance coverage; construction and real estate litigation; maritime disputes; facility disputes; wills, trusts and estates; intellectual property; lender liability; collections and foreclosures; bankruptcy and insolvency; products liability; and tax controversies.
