Litigation has been a core part of the Watkins & Eager’s practice since 1895. Our litigators possess exceptional trial and appellate skills, in-depth knowledge of state and federal courts at all levels, and practical business judgment, all of which contribute to our consistent delivery of cost-effective results. The firm’s litigation practice encompasses all aspects of business and commercial litigation, including creditors’ rights, banking and financial institutions, construction, general business, insurance, intellectual property, products liability, professional liability defense, real estate, environmental, securities, white collar criminal defense, and trust and estate litigation.

Our litigation lawyers represent clients in a broad spectrum of industries such as financial services, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, oil & gas, real estate, insurance, and construction, among others. We also have substantial experience in alternative modes of dispute resolution, including arbitration and mediation.  Several of our members are invited fellows of the American College of Trial Attorneys and the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).
