Companies must sometimes take the legal offensive to protect their vital business interests. Because of our depth of experience in representing plaintiffs and defendants in corporate litigation, clients turn to us to assist them as they strive to reclaim or safeguard their business assets. King & Spalding combines big firm resources and experienced lawyers who try high-exposure cases on a regular basis with the reliability of a small, accountable practice. For clients this means that we deliver a reasonable assessment and valuation of each case based on its merits.
We regularly take the offensive on behalf of clients in disputes ranging from mergers and acquisitions, insurance coverage, complex predatory conduct and mandamus proceedings to wrongful death and aviation matters. On clients’ behalf, King & Spalding often challenges governmental activity, including tax, environmental and property rights matters. We have handled cases ranging from representing taxpayers in significant tax refund claims to representing a major landowner in a regulatory takings claim.
Because the firm regularly represents both plaintiffs and defendants -- often advising longstanding firm clients in both roles -- our lawyers can give clients a solid sense of how each case will proceed. Our clients gain an understanding of whether and how the issues can best be presented to a jury, how judges have handled the issues previously and the opposition’s most likely strategy on the case. Should settlement be an option, King & Spalding lawyers draw on extensive experience to advise plaintiff clients when and if to make this choice. In short, the firm gives clients the information they need to make sound business decisions.
