Litigation & Alternative Dispute Resolution

Backing clients every step
of the way.

Husch Blackwell is committed to resolving disputes for clients as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. Whether litigation arises over a routine business deal or under extraordinary circumstances, we strive to obtain resolutions that keep clients moving forward with minimal disruption. 
    
Our 300-plus trial and appellate attorneys are known for skillfully exploring creative options to achieve favorable results inside and outside the courtroom. Alternative dispute resolution is a particular strength, but when trial is the best or only option, our attorneys are fierce advocates. We also embrace innovative technologies such as machine learning and customized client litigation portals that increase efficiency, reduce legal spend and result in superior outcomes.
