Barnes & Thornburg offers one of the most effective, active and proven trial practices in the country. Annually, our team tries more than 20 cases to successful conclusion before judges and juries across the U.S. Our litigators are client-focused problem-solvers and tireless advocates who think beyond the law when protecting each client’s bottom line. We focus on delivering superior quality and eliminating unnecessary expense.
Our national team encompasses nearly 200 litigators who litigate and try single- and multi-plaintiff claims for public and private corporate and government clients with millions of dollars at stake, as well as national class actions and multidistrict litigation (MDLs) with billions of dollars in dispute. Our focus on excellence and trial experience encourages favorable settlement even when up against intractable cases.
Our decades of trial practice enable us to appropriately evaluate potential case outcomes and costs, and we work diligently to ease the stress of litigation on business owners and in-house counsel. We are dedicated to assembling the right team of litigators, not necessarily the largest. With the client in mind, we employ legal project management strategies to promote successful outcomes that align with client budgets and goals. Big or small, complicated or seemingly straightforward, local or national – we stand ready to take on even the most complex litigation and emergencies on short notice.
We handle the full range of commercial and business law claims, as well as disputes pertaining to intellectual property, labor and employment, product liability, environmental, antitrust, toxic tort, fraud and white collar crime. We routinely advise on litigation prevention, compliance, investigations and data security, and are skilled in the areas of electronic discovery and computer forensics. Sophisticated jury research, trial consulting and courtroom graphics are available to our clients through our subsidiary, ThemeVision LLC.
