General Business Litigation

The lawyers at Markovits, Stock & DeMarco have earned their reputations as being among the best litigators in America. Our litigation team includes seasoned trial attorneys – including the Hamilton County Prosecutor, a National Trial Attorney of the Year recipient, a recipient of the Best Lawyers in America designation and a multiple recipient of the Ohio Super Lawyers designation, as well as an OSBA certified appellate specialist – a formidable and collaborative collection of talents whose substantive experience in the legal, strategic and practical issues serves clients well in the face of the challenges that modern complex commercial litigation invariably presents.

We have been able to leverage this breadth of talent and experience to create individualized, unique case strategies for complex case management with the goal of reducing litigation risks and enhancing the probability of successful outcomes. In addition, we have developed and successfully deployed unique case management tools to accommodate large discovery, document management and trial demands. Each of these characteristics – experience, innovation and dogged hard work – has been a critical component to our success in the commercial litigation field.

We take pride in our ability to level the playing field – providing businesses of all sizes with the legal and technical acumen to achieve the same or better results as the much larger (and less nimble) national law firms. We believe our collective pedigree and our results in the commercial litigation field speak for themselves.
