Sills Cummis & Gross litigators represent multinational corporations, financial institutions and government bodies, typically in complex and important matters. Our litigators are active in pre-trial, trial and appellate matters in federal and state courts, as well as administrative litigation, grand jury investigations and arbitrations. We pride ourselves on advancing our clients’ strategic business objectives, while at the same time striving to identify the key factual and legal issues that impact the final outcome of the litigation. We staff matters intelligently and leanly.

We do not see litigation as an end in itself, but rather as a means of achieving our clients’ goals. This approach, together with a wealth of trial and appellate experience, places us at an advantage against our adversaries both in litigating cases to verdict and in negotiating favorable settlements. Our approach also reduces, to the extent practicable, unnecessary and expensive pre-trial activity.
