Commercial Litigation

At Simmons Hanly Conroy, we have a depth of experience and success representing businesses in litigation against other businesses on a contingency basis. Most law firms will not take this approach. The traditional law firm model eschews risk and accepts client engagements only at ever-increasing hourly billing rates. Simmons Hanly Conroy is different.

We believe success in any business or endeavor is based on establishing partnerships–and that is where our approach to commercial and business litigation begins. Partner Paul Hanly helps oversee cases in our contingent fee commercial litigation practice area.

Simmons Hanly Conroy is no longer accepting Business Litigation cases.

Our contingency fee commercial litigation approach allows smaller businesses with limited financial resources to pursue litigation against larger organizations by which they have been harmed. Traditionally, commercial litigation is pursued by outside counsel paid at hourly rates. Increasingly, however, corporate general counsel have come to understand that plaintiff contingency fee lawyers involved in complex litigation are a huge boon to cash-strapped companies: such arrangements can involve near-zero cash disbursements and the potential for huge recoveries.

We understand that injured businesses and individuals may not be in a position to pay traditional hourly lawyer rates. We also understand that many of these same businesses and individuals have meritorious claims to pursue. If a business client must worry about paying attorney fees upfront, those meritorious claims are often not pursued in the court system.

Attorneys’ fees and litigation expenses can be overwhelming. We have the resources and the expertise to work together with you to develop the billing arrangement that makes the most sense for you.

Our experience in commercial and business litigation includes, but is not limited to:
