Business Disputes and Commercial Litigation: Litigation introduces uncertainty, risk, and distraction. Stanton LLP works to craft a legal strategy aligned with their client’s corporate values and objectives. Stanton LLP lawyers are adept at translating complex facts into clear trial strategies, persuasive arguments, and captivating stories so clients can concentrate on running their business, not their lawsuit.
Employment: Information is power, and employment litigation often centers on claims that departing executives have misappropriated trade secrets, intellectual property and confidential information. Clients rely on Stanton LLP for creative and strategic solutions because of their lawyers’ experience litigating conflicts over fiduciary duties, non-competition agreements, and business defamation. The goal of Stanton LLP is to help prevent litigation before it happens by taking the time to understand their clients’ business, reviewing current practices for potential liabilities, and crafting customized workforce policies and procedures.
Professional Reputation and Liability: Reputation is everything. For clients in public life, their standing in the community is priceless.

Tillotson Law Firm is a litigation boutique that focuses on significant commercial litigation matters. Three things separate Tillotson Law. First, we built our firm as a ‘team’ concept. The firm is a single, integrated trial team. Cases are not staffed with whatever lawyers might be free; the trial team is already in place. Clients know exactly who will work on their case and what their role is.
Second, our team has enormous trial expertise. Our team typically tries three to four major cases a year. Over the past two years alone, we tried jury cases in Texas, Nevada, Oklahoma, Georgia and California. We are on both sides of the docket as we often represent businesses as plaintiffs.
Third, our expertise is in knowing how to win cases. We do not litigate. We try cases to win. Lots of firms will tell you that the best way to get a case resolved is to push it to trial. Here’s the part they miss: You have to be a credible trial threat in the first place for that strategy to work. We have that credibility because we try - and win - the difficult cases. And when we say difficult, we are not kidding. After all, we are the trial team that exposed Lance Armstrong’s drug usage (the result of an epic ten-year lawsuit later made into a movie). We are also the trial team that earned the Texas Lawbook Business Litigation win of 2018 (FTC v. DIRECTV). That’s just the beginning. We are a law firm that took on Yahoo! in a “billion dollar NCAA bracket case” and won. Not every case makes the news but over consistent and long history of successful trials speaks for itself.
