Our Approach

We believe in a preventative approach whenever possible to spare our clients the time, cost and uncertainty of litigation. Shulman Rogers often serves as project counsel for clients to address risk management issues that invariably arise.

However, in some instances, litigation or arbitration becomes necessary to achieve a resolution.  Our attorneys have experience before arbitration panels, State and Federal Courts and contract appeals boards. We combine legal mastery, industry-specific knowledge and a thorough understanding of our clients’ business goals to develop strategies that align with their long-term objectives.
