Commercial Litigation

The experience, creativity, and muscle to make the right moves.

Modern complex commercial litigation invariably presents challenges. And it takes experience, intense study, hard work, and the ability to stay more than a step ahead to surmount them.
By honing and harnessing those skills, our attorneys have become experts in the art of creating individualized and unique strategies for complex case management—all with the goal of reducing litigation risks and enhancing the probability of successful outcomes.
And that should come as no surprise. The team at Markovits, Stock & DeMarco has earned its reputation as being among the best litigation groups in America. Our litigation team is well-seasoned and includes a National Trial Attorney of the Year recipient, a recipient of the Best Lawyers in America designation, a multiple recipient of the Ohio Super Lawyers designation, as well as an OSBA certified appellate specialist. Collectively, we’re a formidable and collaborative team whose substantive experience in legal, strategic, and practical issues ensures excellent client service and representation.

We provide businesses of all sizes innovation and expertise that helps them achieve the same or better results they’d get from much larger—and much less nimble—national firms.
