Complex Business Litigation

Flannery | Georgalis represent clients in a wide of array of complex commercial litigation matters, especially including those involving allegations of serious or intentional misconduct, business fraud, professional liability, and significant employment disputes and breaches of corporate fiduciary duties. We have what most litigators in major law firms do not: years of federal and state jury trial experience in high profile, high stakes matters.

We understand that litigation is important to our clients’ business interests, but that the means of litigation must never overshadow the ultimate business objectives. That is why our approach is always focused on providing the highest quality representation in the most cost-effective, client-centered manner. However, cases sometimes need and deserve to be tried. When that is either unavoidable or in the best interest of our clients, we draw upon our team’s substantial trial experience as former prosecutors and defense attorneys to obtain desired results in front of judges and juries.
