Business Litigation

Depth of experience makes a critical difference in business litigation. At Faruki, our experienced trial attorneys focus on business litigation, covering all aspects of business and commercial disputes.

Class Actions

People frequently use the term “bet the business” in reference to class actions. Moving from chance to a more acceptable resolution of class action lawsuits requires the experience and skills of a proven business law firm.

The difference between a company’s success or failure depends on its ability to quickly and efficiently collect, use, share and store information. Faruki has long been trusted counsel to businesses in matters of information law.

Intellectual Property

A dispute over intellectual property has the potential to threaten the survival of your business. Revenues may be severely curtailed due to an infringement or misappropriation of your intellectual property.
