Trusted Wisdom.

Our passion for excellence and focus on litigation has provided us with the opportunity to attract clients worldwide and litigate all types of disputes.

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.

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.


Advancements in technology, marketing, and branding bring new opportunities for growth and development. Risks also abound, especially as more businesses go online.

White Collar Crime

Federal, state, local and international authorities are now dedicating unparalleled resources to investigating and prosecuting allegations of corporate and individual “white collar” wrongdoing.

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.

Data Security/Privacy

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.
