Litigation can have a profound impact on your business. Our litigation attorneys know what's at stake and have the experience to take on your bet-the-company cases. Barnes & Thornburg has more than 180 litigators in offices in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Delaware, Indiana, Los Angeles, Michigan, Minneapolis, Ohio and Washington, D.C., that provide the strength, depth and experience expected of a national litigation powerhouse.

Barnes & Thornburg attorneys litigate cases nationwide for Fortune 500 clients. We handle a wide range of litigation, including commercial and business litigation, intellectual property, labor and employment, product liability, environmental, antitrust, mortgage fraud, and white collar crime, among others.

We create case-management strategy for clients large and small, public and private, in big cities and small towns. We also routinely advise clients on litigation prevention, insurance and claims management.

Helping you see the big picture – what litigation means for your bottom line – is what we do best. While not every case ends up in court, we have experience at both the trial and appellate levels in state and federal courts throughout the U.S. We discuss with clients what alternative methods exist for resolution of disputes -- negotiation, arbitration and mediation. And we have experience with all three.

You hardly ever hear the words “value” and “litigation” in the same sentence. We don’t just talk about keeping costs under control – we walk the walk. Barnes & Thornburg offers comparable quality at a greater value, along with a combination of sophisticated services and client attention that other firms may simply be unable to provide.

Our experience and deep bench strength enables us to tailor the staffing of litigation to the size and specialized elements of your case. When your complex case or emergency needs an aggressive team, we are ready.
