Complex Commercial Litigation


San Francisco Attorney Manages Complex Commercial Litigation

More than 35 years of commercial litigation experience

Complex commercial litigation involves high-value disputes with multiple litigants and what can seem like an endlessly shifting landscape of liability. At Fergus, A Law Office, I draw on more than 35 years of commercial litigation experience to resolve your disputes favorably and cost-effectively. For more 20 years, I practiced in a large, full-service law firm, rising to become one of its leading trial lawyers representing Fortune 500 companies. My experience extends to civil litigation, where billions of dollars were at stake. But if the dollars in controversy were enormous, the impact on people’s lives was immeasurable, and that is where I derive the greatest satisfaction from my work. If you want an accomplished attorney with a passion to pursue justice on your behalf, consider Fergus, A Law Office, in San Francisco.

Preeminent representation for a variety of commercial disputes

To achieve your goals in negotiations or at trial, you need knowledgeable and experienced representation that can match and surpass the resources of the other parties. My commercial cases have involved numerous legal issues, including:

  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Breach of nondisclosure agreement
  • Entity control
  • Fraudulent transfers
  • Fraud and misrepresentation
  • Intellectual property rights
  • Nondisclosure agreements
  • Purchase and sales agreements
  • Restraint of trade
  • Trade secrets

I work with my commercial clients to identify reasonable goals for litigation, then develop and implement a strategy for achieving those goals. This approach has brought success in nationally prominent cases in federal and state courts, where hundreds of million, if not billions, of dollars were at stake. In litigation over such issues as trade secrets, restraint of trade or breach of an NDA, clients can rely on my experience and passion. Throughout the legal process, I am determined to move the case toward a resolution on optimal terms for my client.

I have the trial skills and the proven ability to manage all aspects of high-profile, data-intense, complex commercial litigation. But perhaps most important is my judgment, based on more than 35 years of experience, about what may be possible to achieve through litigation. For more than 30 years, I have been AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell®, signifying the highest level of professionalism and ethics in the practice of law. You can rely on my clear assessment of the merits of your case, as well as my cost-benefit analysis of various litigation strategies, including alternative methods of dispute resolution.
