Commercial Litigation

Sherinian Law excels at delivering results for our clients in the Court House.  Our attorneys regularly represent injured persons or the families of persons who died due to the negligence of others.  In addition, Sherinian Law represents small businesses in intellectual property disputes and commercial litigation.  Our firm has successfully litigated cases in numerous state courts throughout Illinois, as well as in Federal district courts throughout the country.

Our approach is simple.

 
We invest the time and resources to understand our client’s intellectual property and individual circumstances.  We then tailor a strategy for each client to maximize favorable results, taking into account a holistic view of the client’s position.

We have obtained results on both sides of a case.  In particular, we have obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for plaintiffs that we have represented.  Similarly, we have helped commercial defendants fend off numerous law suits, and in some cases, even recovered attorneys’ fees for our clients.

We follow a simple philosophy when litigating cases.  We start with jury instructions from similar cases that were recently used at trial in the court the case is pending in.  We then meticulously map out every element of evidence that our client needs to succeed at trial for every claim or defense at issue, and how we will introduce each piece of evidence.  This process shapes the entire litigation, from pleadings through discovery and summary judgment, and into trial.  While other firms focus on obtaining “complete discovery,” or focusing on a summary judgment motion that is not likely to be granted, we focus on preparation for trial.

A welcome benefit of our focus on trial is that we force the other side to face the weaknesses in their case early, which makes settlement all the more likely.  In addition, by focusing on the specific evidence required to prove or oppose a claim or defense at trial, we are not scrambling at the last minute to prepare or oppose a summary judgment motion.

Last, but not least, we believe every client has a right to honest counsel.  We’ll let you know the merits and problems of your case early, and we will update you regularly on the progress of your case.
