Robert N. Hocker has litigated and tried a diverse range of business disputes, including cases involving claims for breach of contract, tortuous interference with contract, unfair competition, fraud, partnership disputes, and breach of fiduciary duty. The key to handling these cases is to determine what is at stake for the client and the important impact the litigation will have on the client’s business. In business litigation, the legal strategy must be congruent with the client’s business strategy. Our firm works closely with our clients to make the two are in alignment.
The vast majority of litigated cases, including business litigation, settle before trial. Our firm firmly believes that being represented by an attorney who has a proven record of success at trial allows clients to negotiate from a position of confidence and strength. Most litigators practicing today have very little, if any, real trial experience. In contrast, Robert N. Hocker has successfully tried to verdict a wide variety of lawsuits, including many business disputes. Most of Mr. Hocker’s business litigation cases are referred to him by fellow lawyers who have worked with him and know his trial skills and his commitment to clients.
