Litigation / Dispute Resolution

Advocating for your rights

Eaton Peabody’s Litigation Practice Group attorneys provide full and comprehensive legal services throughout the State of Maine to businesses and individuals. We have significant experience in handling a wide variety of litigation matters with the end focus involving a favorable dispute resolution for our clients. Thus, while we are highly skilled attorneys with significant trial experience and capability, our litigation attorneys are also highly skilled in mediation, arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. Many disputes can be, and often are, resolved through settlement before trial; however, when settlement is not possible, our trial experience ensures that client matters are handled and pursued with the highest level of advocacy with one goal: to obtain the best outcome possible for our client whether a business or an individual.

Eaton Peabody litigation attorneys strive to serve our clients with the most effective and efficient legal services possible. To further serve our clients, our litigation attorneys work closely with attorneys in other practice areas to develop preventative litigation strategies and to help our clients reduce litigation risk. We also turn to Eaton Peabody attorneys in other practice areas to provide substantive, issue-related advice and strategies for our clients regardless of whether the issues involve business law disputes, employee benefits and executive compensation issues, municipal law and finance issues, natural resources and timberland issues, personal injury claims, business and individual tort claims, whether plaintiff or defense, and estate and probate issues to name a few.

We defend our clients in the real estate industry including developers, land owners, businesses with land ownership, timberland owners and residential owners; in the construction industry relative to issues involving both public and private projects and business and individual disputes, both large and small; in the automobile dealership industry; and in the railroad industry regarding any and all issues that arise in that industry. The experience and thorough knowledge of Eaton Peabody litigation attorneys of these industries allows us to counsel clients and to assist in preventing problems from arising at the outset and to ultimately move forward to resolve disputes efficiently when they do arise.

The attorneys in Eaton Peabody’s Litigation Practice Group share a common goal: to vigorously represent and enforce the rights of our clients in all matters of litigation, in all sizes of litigation matters and all geographical areas of the State of Maine and to do so as efficiently and cost effectively as possible.
