Commercial Litigation

When a client is facing complex commercial litigation issues that affect stock price, reputation or future profitability it is important to choose the right legal team to stand behind you. In our role as legal counsel, we take pride in developing a deep understanding of our client’s unique business and legal objectives. Lawsuits and their aftermath have changed the face of business as we know it. The commercial litigation team at Coats Rose has the know-how to not only meet the challenges of litigation but anticipate and therefore help avoid potential future problems.

Our lawyers have handled high-profile, complex litigation matters on behalf of clients ranging from global corporations and start up businesses. We understand litigation can’t be a business owner’s full time job. We approach commercial litigation as an extension of the client’s business, taking care of matters with the full strength of our Firm’s resources to bear towards a win.

Our litigation lawyers have an extraordinary depth of experience, and practical expertise across multiple industries. This allows our team to identify our client’s distinct needs and objectives early in the process, and design an aggressive, creative litigation strategy.

We try cases in state and federal courts throughout Texas and across the nation, in virtually all fields of litigation. Our lawyers represent both plaintiffs and defendants, many of whom are corporate, governmental or institutional clients. During the litigation strategy process, we work hard to ensure that our clients are fully aware of their progress towards resolution.
