At Calfee, we understand the challenges and risks of dispute management – whether civil lawsuits, arbitrations, or government investigations – and we have the experience and judgment to help you reduce the uncertainties of disputes and achieve the most favorable outcome.

We represent public and private companies in a large variety of industries, handling diverse matters ranging from everyday business disputes, to complex commercial lawsuits and arbitrations. Our attorneys work with individuals as well as Ohio, U.S.-based, and international businesses. We rely on a strong understanding of our clients’ industries and business goals to provide practical advice. Through strategic staffing and project management techniques, we work with our clients to develop the most efficient litigation strategy to help meet their objectives.

We know that not every dispute justifies a protracted battle. For this reason, where appropriate, we advocate the use of mediation or other alternative dispute resolution techniques to resolve our clients' litigation matters efficiently, which can reduce the costs and delays and bring the matter to a successful conclusion.
