Litigation + Dispute Resolution

Whether your litigation involves winning a case – or helping your company survive – you need the skills and experience of a sophisticated litigation practice. Goodwin’s litigators provide you with results-oriented representation, drawing on talents of more than 350 trial lawyers, engaged in high-profile cases in the United States and in Europe.

We assist clients in a wide range of industries with trials, arbitrations, mediations and negotiations, and counsel on litigation avoidance and risk management. These matters primarily involve consumer financial services, intellectual property, white collar defense, securities litigation, commercial and business litigation, appellate, products litigation and counseling, labor and employment, ERISA litigation and antitrust.

We excel at integrating financial, scientific and other expertise with cutting-edge management and trial strategies and carefully assess all options for our clients. Our lawyers approach each new challenge as an urgent business matter to be resolved cost-effectively and under deadline.

Understanding our clients’ objectives is essential to successfully resolving matters. Success can mean quick and discrete resolution, a courtroom victory or a variety of other outcomes. We are committed to developing solutions to resolve our clients’ most challenging problems using approaches that meet their business needs.

In 2020, Goodwin launched its European litigation practice. The team specializes in advising investment and retail banks, funds, issuers, bondholders and other financial counterparties in the resolution of complex corporate disputes, often with a cross-border element and has litigated across many different fields of finance, with a particular focus on investment banking, structured finance and funds litigation. Focus areas include conducting court proceedings (including in the UK Supreme Court), arbitral proceedings, managing multi-jurisdictional court proceedings and various methods of alternative dispute resolution.
