Commercial and Corporate Litigation

Our litigators represent many successful businesses, privately held companies, shareholders and investors in many types of commercial and corporate disputes. Whether it is “bet-the-company” litigation, recovering investments, seeking damages for shareholder oppression, or a mere commercial dispute, Jacobs Law Group can successfully navigate the hazardous waters of adjudicating your case before a Judge, Jury, or Arbitrator. At Jacobs Law Group, unlike many of our competitors, we are not just paper litigators, we actually relish trying cases.

However, we recognize the business imperatives and litigation is not always the answer. Sometimes a more deft hand is required and we are able to guide many of our clients' disputes into advantageous settlements without the need for litigation.
