Business Litigation

Like all of its other services, Ardent’s litigation services are intensely focused on each client’s bottom line. Litigation is expensive, and Ardent understands that when you hire an attorney or law firm, you trust the legal matter will be handled as effectively and efficiently as possible. Ardent honors that trust. We remain organized, meticulously prepared and our litigation attorneys are among the most efficient around. We do not have an army of associates to keep busy or large overheads to meet and we do not train junior lawyers on your dime.  

We continuously evaluate the risks and benefits involved in each matter, and communicate our evaluations to our clients. We don’t employ multiple attorneys on a single matter unless absolutely necessary. We avoid petty activities and battles that have little or no impact on the outcome or the client’s bottom line. At the same time, we vigorously and relentlessly pursue each client’s goals. We focus on overall results; which means each client gets effective and efficient representation. Ardent also takes seriously its obligation to communicate with each client.

We promptly advise our clients of significant developments relating to their matters. In fact, as a way of encouraging our clients to communicate with us on a regular basis, we provide one telephone or in person meeting each month free of charge. Of course, Ardent’s lawyers are extremely experienced with business litigation, whether simple or complex, including intellectual property, employment, real estate, construction, and securities disputes.
