Gesmer Updegrove LLP has a litigation style that reflects our clients' needs: when litigating and resolving disputes we pursue a highly focused approach, attempting to identify key issues early and avoiding inefficient discovery practices, so that cases are resolved quickly and at relatively low cost.
We represent individual, combined, and class-action claims for both plaintiffs and defendants. We represent clients from pre-litigation through (if required) appellate stages. We work in State and Federal courts and before Administrative Agencies, such as the Appellate Tax Board and the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination.
We also represent clients in non-traditional forums, such as Alternative Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Arbitration. It is intrinsic to our Practice to guide our clients toward the most efficient and inexpensive issue resolution, counseling them in ways to effectively avoid disputes and to explore non-litigation alternatives.
Our Litigation attorneys have extensive experience in preventing and handling disputes in all areas of general business and commercial law, and in the specialized legal areas of intellectual property, trade secret, copyright, and non-competition law.
Because of our extensive experience in the high technology business community, we understand its special needs. For example, judges and juries are often unfamiliar with high technology concepts, creating an obstacle to effective advocacy. Our attorneys, adept at understanding complex technology issues, can translate these issues into concepts accessible to judges and juries, and therefore can present our clients' legal positions most effectively.
