Spruce Law’s Litigation and Dispute Resolution Practice:

Our Value Proposition

Legal Services Optimized.

Spruce Law’s litigation and dispute resolution team provides big-firm quality, highly responsive representation delivered with individualized service and unmatched value. We are seasoned legal professionals and industry experts, with pedigrees equal to those found at traditional law firms, but our highly innovative law firm structure enables us to serve your needs with maximum efficiency.

Litigation Services That Fit You.

Your legal expenditures must be strategic and add value. Our experience working with businesses ranging from start-ups to established global enterprises informs our approach to your particular business needs. Our litigation and dispute resolution group provides you and your business with strategic planning, risk-avoidance counsel, and aggressive courtroom advocacy when necessary. Above all, our goals are to further your business interests and protect your bottom-line. We will help you predict, and control, both hard and soft costs of litigation.

Efficient, Common Sense, Results-Driven Model.

Each client, and each case, presents a unique set of challenges. Your particular business goals are the most important aspects of any litigation. Somehow the legal profession has lost track of this. We have not.

Law firms traditionally bill business litigation at an hourly rate. But this model does not work with every business litigation challenge. Some cases are best served by a flat-fee or hybrid-fee arrangement. Alternative-fee arrangements may allow you to pursue claims that would otherwise be cost-prohibitive.

Hiring our experienced litigation and dispute resolution team means you will never be paying for on-the-job training for new associates. We strategically build our litigation and dispute resolution teams to match the needs of each case, and we will never double-bill or overstaff your case.

Minimizing Litigation Disruptions, Maximizing Litigation Benefits.

Our team becomes your trusted partner in minimizing the disruptive impact that litigation can have on your business when you are forced to defend against a lawsuit or choose to litigate to resolve a dispute.

Litigation is not always the best answer to a problem. We will customize an ongoing plan to assure that when you are involved in litigation, we further your business interests, and whenever possible, avoid costly litigation in the first place.
