Complex Business Litigation

We represent clients in all aspects of business related litigation, including disputes regarding breach of contract and fiduciary duties, fraud, unfair trade practices, tortious interference, trademarks and trade secrets. Our lawyers have extensive experience with business litigation matters in both the state and federal trial and appellate courts and arbitration forums. Both George Corbyn and Joe Hampton have been recognized by their peers as two of the best attorneys in Oklahoma in the area of business litigation, as they have been named to Chambers USA - America's Leading Lawyers for Business and Oklahoma Super Lawyer. Additionally, George has been recognized in The Best Lawyers in America in the category of "Bet the Company Litigation," which typically describes the situations many companies face when sued for these types of business torts and commercial law breaches.

We guide our clients through all aspects of litigation, including case preparation, court appearances, selection and management of experts, and the overall development and execution of a litigation strategy.

Mediation

We believe our background and expertise as litigators, coupled with our training and experience as mediators, equips us to assist advocates in securing and achieving resolution of the most challenging disputes.

Arbitration

We understand and respect the need for just, final resolution of disputes that cannot be voluntarily resolved. As arbitrators, we are committed to providing all parties with a full and fair opportunity to be heard by a neutral, experienced decision-maker.

Employment Law

The employment laws and regulations governing employees can be confusing and complex. We help our clients by crafting and implementing workplace policies dealing with sexual harassment, discrimination, family and medical leave and drug and alcohol testing and by responding to the myriad of issues that arise in the workplace. In addition to counseling employers, we also provide effective and cost efficient representation in the unfortunate event an employer is sued. We handle cases at every level, from writing position statements for submission to governmental agencies to handling all aspects of trial and appellate proceedings.

Franchise

We represent national franchisors in various areas, including franchisor-franchisee disagreements, competitive disputes, supply system issues and employment issues.

Securities

Our attorneys have experience representing issuers, broker-dealers, officers and directors and individual employees in matters involving federal and state securities laws, as well as various regulatory and exchange rules. We have successfully represented our clients in securities matters in federal and state courts and arbitration forums.

Professional Responsibility

We regularly represent professionals, including attorneys, in a multitude of professional responsibility matters, including the defense of malpractice claims, partnership disputes, inurance coverage issues, white-collar criminal defense, and other litigation.
