Our clients appreciate how we work closely with them to understand their businesses, identify potential areas of legal exposure, develop strategies to manage risk and work to resolve disputes before trial. We provide strategic advice and recognize that our clients have broad business needs and concerns to be taken into account in litigation and arbitration.

Honigman has appeared throughout the country before federal and state trial and appellate courts, in arbitrations and dispute resolutions forums and in administrative proceedings.
