The Massachusetts litigation attorneys at McGinn Law, PC handle a diverse array of civil litigation. At the outset of each case, we work with our client to assess strategy and develop a plan focused on the most cost effective steps to achieve the client’s goal.
Most lawyers know that litigation is not always the best option, but McGinn Law, PC knows that it needs to be an available option to protect our clients’ rights or assets.
The key to winning litigation can sometimes be the ability to prevent it with good drafting or with effective negotiations. The attorneys at McGinn Law PC have experience in preventing and handling disputes in all areas of general business and commercial law, and in the specialized legal areas of technology licensing, state and federal taxation and even divorce law.
We represent individuals, combined parties, and class action parties – both plaintiffs and defendants. We represent clients from pre-litigation through appellate stages (if required). We work in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies, such as the Internal Revenue Service and the Massachusetts Appellate Tax Board. We provide a personalized, cost-effective service and handle litigation matters carefully, efficiently and if necessarily, aggressively.
We also recognize that some cases are better served through alternative dispute resolution to reach speedier and more favorable resolution. For our clients we are accustomed to working closely with in-house corporate counsel, and we routinely establish budgets for litigation matters and monitor litigation costs closely. We also represent small businesses and individuals.
Our lawyers bring knowledge to all types of business cases:
- Complex business disputes
- Intellectual property cases such as trade secrets, trademark and copyright
- Non-competition agreements
- Business torts including claims under the Massachusetts unfair practices statute, chapter 93A
- Disputes arising out of the purchase or sale of businesses and real estate
- Complex product liability and personal injury matters
- Matters arising under the Uniform Commercial Code
We understand that litigation can exact a heavy toll on our clients, whether they are plaintiffs or defendants, and we work to accommodate our clients’ financial needs while, simultaneously, providing vigorous legal representation. Our basic principle is that whenever possible, cases should be settled at the earliest possible point.
We provide superior service by working closely with all of our clients to keep them informed throughout the process. We develop litigation plans that analyze the costs, benefits and risks of various strategies, provide an accurate assessment of likely results and outline specific milestones. Furthermore, our regular communication ensures timely updates on new developments and keeps the clients “in the loop” on refinement of strategy as changes occur in their cases. We will not just tell you what you would like to hear, we will tell you what you need to know.
Our primary goal in litigation is to reach the best possible outcome for our clients as quickly as possible, thus minimizing the expense to the client. We pursue a highly focused approach to identify key issues early and avoiding inefficient discovery practices. However, we recognize that some cases can’t be settled – and those we are ready and able to try, using all of the tools of our trade, including technology, to present our client’s position in the most favorable and effective way.
