With a team of over 40 experienced litigators, including former judges and prosecutors, Krieg DeVault has a highly-regarded litigation practice. We represent individuals, companies and non-profit organizations in state and federal courts throughout the Midwest and nationwide, including such specialized forums as U.S. Bankruptcy Court. Our lawyers have extensive court experience and a proven track record in preliminary injunction proceedings, administrative hearings, bench and jury trials, arbitrations, mediations and appeals. We understand that each of our clients has unique business objectives, commercial needs, and real-life challenges that require a personalized litigation approach. We bring to each dispute a depth of trial talent, a broad range of industry knowledge and resources, persuasive analytical and writing skills, and sophisticated case management technologies that allow us to formulate integrated legal strategies with our client’s best interests in mind. Whether successful resolution takes place in the boardroom, in the courtroom, or somewhere in between, our litigators are dedicated to charting a litigation course that best supports our client’s immediate goals and long-term vision.
