Litigation and Dispute Resolution

The litigation group at Andrews Kurth Kenyon functions like a boutique, but one with the logistical support and the bench strength of a large firm. We are composed of over 50 partners and 40 non-partners, who bring to each case the focus, imagination and efficiency born of having tried cases to conclusion. Unlike firms that have been reducing their capability to try lawsuits, Andrews Kurth Kenyon has been actively growing and acquiring the talent necessary to take each case all the way to a verdict and to successfully represent our clients. Our partners have collectively tried approximately 1,000 cases to jury verdict or bench decision.

Our experience in the courtroom, our knowledge of what will actually persuade a judge or a jury, coupled with a “One Riot, One Ranger” mentality, create an atmosphere in which each case receives the attention and the creativity which is its due, and results in more effective and efficient resolutions for our clients.

We know companies can be either plaintiffs or defendants in cases, and our lawyers understand the interests at stake in either role. When we appear in a case, our opponents confront lawyers known to have the willingness and the talent to take the matter all the way. In an age when many large firm “litigators” have little or no significant jury trial experience, this presents a tremendous advantage to our clients, whether at trial or in settlement.

Many disputes are required to be litigated before the AAA, JAMS, or other similar organizations. We have extensive experience in such forums and make use of our courtroom abilities. When business disputes cross national borders, we similarly represent our clients before the leading international arbitral bodies. We routinely appear before the leading global and regional forums (including the International Centre for Dispute Resolution, International Chamber of Commerce and London Court of International Arbitration), and are skilled at the unique presentation skills required for arbitral effectiveness.

We are also quite aware that the best result is not always a verdict or a judgment and are adept at developing creative and pre-emptive solutions to our clients’ problems. We manage internal corporate investigations, government-mandated investigations and assist boards, in-house counsel and board committees to identify problems and ensure compliance before litigation ensues.

Our partners are routinely selected by their peers and by our clients for recognition in Benchmark Litigation, Chambers & Partners USA, Legal 500, Super Lawyers and The Best Lawyers in America.

We invite you to review our capabilities in the various industries listed to the right and to review our individual resumes.
