The trial attorneys at Ogborn Mihm LLP have decades of experience representing business clients in high-stakes commercial and contract litigation. Unlike many business litigation firms that are law and motion firms, settle, and never actually go to trial, we have substantial experience trying such business cases to juries and judges. We have successfully represented clients in hundreds of jury trials, bench trials and arbitrations involving a wide variety of business disputes.

While we represent many of our clients on an hourly basis, we prefer alternative fee arrangements, such as contingent fee agreements, with our clients in the appropriate business litigation matters. Learn More About Our Alternative Fee Arrangements
