Eisenberg Hefler & Levy LLP has a substantial commercial litigation practice, with significant presence in the fields of copyright and entertainment law. What sets the firm’s litigation practice apart from that of other firms is the belief that litigation is a technique of last resort. If attempts at reaching an amicable resolution of a problem fail, then litigation, properly utilized, can get the much-needed attention of another party or bring the legitimate claims of a client before an unbiased trier of fact. Litigation should not be treated as a game designed to showcase the belligerence of the attorneys for the parties in conflict.  Often the best litigation is the one which is avoided. That said, however, when required, Eisenberg Hefler & Levy LLP aggressively and cost-effectively represents its clients in all phases of civil litigation including discovery, motion practice, arbitration and mediation, trials and appellate work.
