Litigation

Mirick O’Connell attorneys provide high-quality, cost-effective litigation and strategic counseling services for our clients.  We use practical, results-oriented methods to resolve and, where appropriate, avoid disputes for our clients. We recognize that litigation is often disruptive and expensive.  Our goal is to be a problem solver for our clients. We seek to achieve that goal quickly and effectively in order to achieve a positive outcome. Our clients include individuals, closely-held businesses and Fortune 500 companies in the banking, insurance, real estate, construction, health care and life sciences, biotechnology, manufacturing and financial services industries.

Unlike other litigators, Mirick O’Connell attorneys actually try cases. Our litigators conduct trials in the state and federal courts and we represent clients in arbitrations. However, we recognize that not every case should be tried. In those circumstances, the litigation process can achieve leverage that creates a favorable environment for negotiating successful results. Where appropriate, we work with our clients and our opponents in mediation and alternative dispute resolution. We counsel our clients on litigation avoidance and risk management. We work with our clients to evaluate each and every dispute that arises to determine the best way to solve our client’s problem, be it defending the case through verdict or seeking a negotiated settlement.

Mirick O'Connell litigators have been recognized for their excellence by Law & Politics in its annual designation of Massachusetts "Super Lawyers" and "Rising Stars."  Although headquartered in Massachusetts, our litigators handle cases for some of our clients regionally, in the state and federal courts in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.  In other states, we routinely coordinate with local counsel who share our goals of efficiency, timeliness and good results.  Where appropriate, we welcome the opportunity to engage performance-based compensation arrangements with our clients.
