MG+M’s Business Litigation + Transactions group partners with clients to identify goals for disputes or transactions that mesh with clients’ visions for their companies. MG+M offers start-to-finish business counseling—advising businesses throughout the United States and Europe on a full spectrum of sophisticated disputes and transactions and, when necessary, litigating their most complex, high-stakes business conflicts. Combining a pragmatic approach with extensive skills, we devise strategies that enable and support our clients’ business goals.
MG+M analyzes every aspect of a dispute, including conducting and/or managing internal and government investigations, and advises companies with an eye towards efficiently resolving matters to help our clients focus on their business, instead of litigation. We provide efficient and creative ways to minimize risk–both in the litigation/investigation and transactional context–as a matter proceeds. Working with clients as business partners, MG+M constantly analyzes the best path forward, up to and including litigation. When cases proceed to trial, MG+M prepares cases using our team of trial-tested attorneys and professionals.
Diverse resources for diverse cases
Clients depend on MG+M to represent them in business disputes and formal litigation, as well as internal and government investigations.
