Merrill O’Sullivan, LLP litigation lawyers help solve legal problems favorably, promptly, economically, and professionally. At every step of the process, we help our clients to consider the costs, benefits, and risks of litigation, as well as available alternatives.

When we litigate at arbitration, trial or on appeal, we are vigorous advocates and we carefully calibrate and implement our strategy to be consistent with the client’s goals. We also seek opportunities for creative settlements, and we believe that our ability and willingness to try and win cases makes favorable settlement more likely.
