Business and Commercial Litigation

Business disputes are an unfortunate reality of prolonged business activity. Often times these disputes result in an extraordinary drain on company time and capital. Proper management of these disputes is therefore of paramount importance in order to navigate the evermore complex business landscape.

At Rose & deJong, we have a strong track record of success in Business and Commercial litigation, and our attorneys have developed a strong reputation for their incredible depth of knowledge and innovative litigation strategy. We rely on these assets and the personal relationships we cultivate with our clients to help achieve the results necessary to keep their businesses growing and to set policies which will allow those businesses to move forward without the concern of being continuously and needlessly bogged down by lingering issues.

Class Action Defense

Rose & deJong class action defense attorneys combine their command of the rules and procedures regarding class actions with knowledge of the substantive areas of underlying law to create a defense strategy with one principle in mind: cost-efficiency. We bring our considerable resources to bear in dealing with such complex litigation with an eye towards not only liability but towards determining and executing a plan that will minimize damage to their company and most expediently extricate our clients from being mired in months or years of unnecessary and costly litigation.

Employment Litigation

This interdisciplinary approach ensures clients receive cutting edge counsel on the increasingly specialized issues in this area.

Clients can feel confident that their attorneys at Rose & deJong have the experience to provide the best and most cost-effective representation in these disputes.

Insurance Coverage Analysis and Litigation

Rose & deJong has developed a strong and important area of concentration in insurance coverage litigation and analysis. Our attorneys have successfully represented insured clients in coverage matters both in state and federal court and at multiple levels of appeal. Clients faced with a denial or limited payment on claims by their insurer turn to Rose & deJong to fight for their interests through negotiation and formal litigation means including the assertion of bad faith claims against insurers. We work personally with our clients to protect their rights and resolve disputes efficiently and effectively, and we offer our clients innovative and practical legal strategies and solutions that keep the client’s business goals in mind.
