Litigation

Litigation can be a daunting prospect. We understand the significant implications involved in litigation—the apprehension, fear, costs, lack of control and unpredictable outcome. At Gresham Savage, our fearless leaders do the worrying for you.

As Vince Lombardi once said, “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.” Our clients trust us to win, and they have for a century. We love what we do and want to take the burden of litigation from you, handling all aspects from start to finish. We’re not afraid to admit that we love winning—it’s what drives us.

A competitive team fighting for you

We thrive on the challenge of trying cases. We strongly believe in the power of teamwork, working together to determine the best possible presentation to move decision-makers towards a favorable decision. Our confidence and experience in trying cases has bolstered our reputation in front of both judges and the public. Gresham Savage attorneys are unafraid in the courtroom, so you can feel confident putting your legal matters in our hands.

The proof is in our results
In the last year alone, our attorneys obtained a $21 million judgement involving a multi-national tenant in a complex breach of contract dispute, obtaining a bifurcation of the trial into three phases: contract interpretation, equitable issues and legal issues, limiting the issues presented to the jury to damages. Our attorneys also recovered a $2.3 million jury verdict and recovered $1 million in attorney’s fees in a hotly contested real estate matter in Texas federal court. We also secured a favorable verdict in a declaratory relief action regarding restrictive covenants governing a shopping center, recovering both the attorney’s fee and costs for our client, totaling $551,000. In another case prevailing on summary judgement, a total of $590,000 was recovered in an action against the world’s largest retailer.

We’ve set legal precedence working on landmark cases, including a Ninth Circuit case where our attorneys were successful in convincing the Court to adopt the “Birthday Rule” for the coordination of benefits.

Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, financial institutions, nonprofits and government entities have all turned to us for representation. Some of our achievements include:

  • A judgment saving mutual water companies hundreds of millions of dollars in future infrastructure relocation expenses.
  • A summary judgment and more than $300,000 in attorneys’ fees for a developer in a multimillion dollar lawsuit.
  • A complete defense verdict and attorneys’ fees and costs in a multimillion-dollar real property lawsuit.
  • A plaintiff’s verdict of over $8 million in binding arbitration in a contract dispute over a technology sale to India.
  • A multimillion dollar settlement for a software developer in a trade dress and copyright infringement suit.
  • The successful settlement of a $100 million construction and nuisance claim by homeowners against a national retail developer.
  • A favorable settlement for a large international pharmaceutical company in a nine-figure patent infringement action related to the drug, Quinine.
