Prince Lobel actively practices in all Massachusetts courts, both state and federal, as well as elsewhere in New England. The Litigation Practice Group consists of lawyers with expertise in many different specialty areas, including both civil and criminal matters. Our attorneys also appear regularly before administrative agencies and in arbitration cases. We provide personalized, cost-effective services and handle litigation matters aggressively, carefully and efficiently.
Our trial lawyers bring substantial experience and expertise to virtually every type of business case, including complex business disputes, intellectual property cases including trade secrets, trademark and copyright, noncompetition agreements, business torts including claims under the Massachusetts unfair practices statute, chapter 93A, white collar criminal matters, disputes arising out of the purchase and sale of businesses and real estate, complex product liability and personal injury matters, and matters arising under the Uniform Commercial Code.
Our clients include Fortune 500 companies, independent government authorities, telecommunications and media companies, financial institutions, lenders, loan servicers, closely held and family businesses, real estate developers, small business and individual clients. The depth and diversity of our litigation experience provides us with the ability to tailor our approach to the needs of each client and to the demands of each case.
We recognize that some cases require alternative dispute resolution to reach a quick and favorable resolution, while other cases require comprehensive discovery, trial and appellate work. We have broad and deep experience in every phase of trial work throughout the United States and Puerto Rico as well as a strong record in mediation and arbitration proceedings.
We are accustomed to working closely with in-house corporate counsel, and we routinely establish budgets for litigation matters and closely monitor litigation costs. Our attorneys understand that litigation can exact a heavy toll on our clients, whether they are plaintiffs or defendants, and we do everything we can to accommodate business needs while, at the same time, providing vigorous legal representation. Among our basic principles is that whenever possible, cases should be settled at the earliest possible time. However, we recognize that some cases can’t be settled – and those we are ready and able to try, using all the tools of our trade, including technology, to present our client’s position in the most favorable way.
