Complex civil litigation in Minnesota is not only incredibly stressful, but very costly-and can be even more costly if your case is not adequately prepared. When millions of dollars and your reputation are at stake, Villaume & Schiek can manage even the most critical disputes that require extensive financial interactions with multiple parties. Our experienced attorneys are well-versed in representing their clients in the most complex civil litigation case.
Complex civil litigations occur when any of the following are involved:
- Substantial amounts of money
- Multiple jurisdictions
- Multiple parties
- Complex Disagreements
Civil Litigation Resolutions
Villaume & Schiek’s attorneys and staff members have several decades collectively of wide-ranging investigation, litigation, and dispute resolution experience. Our civil litigation attorneys have tried hundreds of cases in state and federal courts with favorable outcomes through authoritative intervention and skilled negotiation.
We provide defense and plaintiff representation in federal and state courts in cases involving:
- Breach of contract
- Business-to-business disputes
- Complex or MDL – multidistrict litigation
- Consumer fraud
- Homeowners association disputes
- Illegal employment practices
- Property disputes
- Real estate litigation
- Unfair competition
- Violation of verbal agreements
- Violating trade secrets
In cooperation with other attorneys, our engagements as lead counsel cover a wide range of regulatory, civil, and commercial controversies. We have the leadership to prepare and present comprehensive internal investigations for various entities: public entities, corporations, and professionals.
Whether we are representing you in a regulatory sanction, criminal prosecution, or civil liability suit, our attorneys will prepare the best case to achieve the most favorable outcome. We also handle criminal tax fraud, theft of trade secrets, alleged mail/wire fraud, unlawful employment practices, as well as ethical violations.
The Minnesota Rules of Civil Procedures are not easily navigated. Some timelines and deadlines must be adhered to so as not to jeopardize the standing of the case. There are several documents involved, such as Summons and Complaint, Answers, Waivers of Service, statutes of limitations to be followed, judgments by default to avoid, extensions, discovery, pre-trial motions, and so on. The list seems endless.
Although a civil action does not require you to have an attorney in complex civil litigation, it is to your advantage to have a knowledgeable attorney by your side. In Minnesota, in most civil litigation cases involving a corporation or limited liability corporation, you are required to have an attorney in District Court.
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Our goal is to understand your case and get you the resolution and desired outcome; we then will discuss your legal options with you. Results depend on:
- If you seek monetary damages
- If you want a court injunction to stop the other party
- If you seek a judgment declaring you are in the right
- If you want a diplomatic resolution
- If you want to fight it out in court
Villaume & Schiek can advise you in mediation or arbitration, litigate for you in contested court proceedings, or negotiate on your behalf with the other party. If we receive an adverse ruling or verdict, we can also handle the appeals process. We will discuss realistic expectations about the likely outcome and will actively pursue whatever course of action you choose.
Whether you are being sued or protecting your rights, the attorneys of Villaume & Schiek, always attempt to put you in the most favorable position in a court of law. We will work closely with you to negotiate a reasonable solution or fiercely represent you in court.
