Complex, High-Risk Litigation

We thrive on winning tough cases.  Our firm consists of accomplished trial attorneys hailing from some of the largest and most prestigious firms in the country who have joined together to provide clients with a level of experience and service that is hard to match. Thorpe Shwer combines the capabilities and know-how of a large, sophisticated litigation practice with the individualized service and attention found at a boutique law firm.  Our size and structure ensures that our clients receive exceptional legal representation in an efficient, cost-effective, and creative way.

Clients choose Thorpe Shwer because they know our attorneys will give their case the effort and attention it deserves.  We build lasting relationships with our clients by taking the time to learn their long-term goals and how their businesses function.  We do not view litigation through the lens of a one-time problem, but evaluate the impact of a dispute on the client’s overall business, including steps that may prevent similar disputes in the future. Our attorneys work one-on-one with clients to solve legal problems that have company-wide application and significance.  We frequently serve as national counsel for our clients, developing and executing long-range litigation strategies that support our clients’ business interests.
