We encourage preventive counseling and negotiation for the efficient conduct of business
We are part of the business teams of our clients. We encourage preventive counseling and negotiation for the efficient conduct of business. But when negotiations or business arrangements fail, we are ready to use adversarial problem-solving mechanisms to attain your goals. Our litigation team works very closely with clients in balancing the benefits and disadvantages of each scenario and mapping a detailed strategy for each case. We work closely with company management, and firmly believe that keeping the client informed and involved at all times is essential to maintain effective case management and achieve results.
We have extensive experience in Federal and Puerto Rico courts in handling plaintiffs' and defendants' cases dealing, among other areas, with the following:
- Dealer's disputes
- Business contract disputes
- Sales representatives' issues
- Insurance regulatory and claims issues
- Bankruptcy and creditor-debtor issues
- Private claims concerning real estate, planning and land use disputes
- Environmental disputes between lessees/lessors, current owners/past owners, and industrial and commercial neighbor disputes
- Government/administrative actions related to land use permitting and environmental compliance
- Labor and employment
- Intellectual property
- General and complex civil and commercial litigation
- Trial work
- Appellate practice
We have extensive hands-on experience in complex administrative issues before Federal and Puerto Rico agencies, and have a network of consultants and professionals to provide expert support to our cases. We practice before Puerto Rico and Federal trial appellate courts, and litigation team attorneys are admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. Our experience in commercial litigation also has required us to become well acquainted with alternative dispute resolution mechanisms. Such alternative mechanisms have also been used in environmental administrative enforcement actions with the support of our Environmental Practice Group.
TCM has a proven and effective trial support team who works very closely with case lead litigators to accomplish tasks efficiently and cost effectively. Our litigators have appeared before other forums, and when the case has required it, they are always ready to provide litigation support to stateside or international firms, conduct discovery and investigations, depositions, and other proceedings in other jurisdictions outside Puerto Rico.
