Civil litigation has been the foundation on which Barton Gilman is built since its inception in 1995. Appearing regularly in the federal and state courts of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York and New Jersey, as well as before various administrative agencies, our trial attorneys develop litigation strategies tailored to the specific needs of each client and the facts of each case. We insure that our clients are well-advised of their options and expenses throughout the litigation process, and we strive to achieve results that best meet their needs.
We also advise our clients on potential ways to avoid or minimize costly litigation where possible. In this respect, we provide guidance on how best to reduce liability exposure in light of recent legal trends and other significant developments. We also evaluate the feasibility of less expensive alternatives to litigation, including but not limited to, mediation and arbitration.
