Clinton Brook & Peed combines big-firm quality and expertise with small-firm attention and efficiency. Our subject-matter expertise, skillful and creative advocacy, and personal attention and use of technology enable us to represent our clients efficiently and effectively.
Skillful and Creative Advocacy.
We take cases to trial and argue them on appeal. In 2017 alone, we won a civil jury trial in federal court; had an arbitration award affirmed by a federal court; won a trial before an administrative agency; won several cases on behalf of criminal defendants; and argued and won appeals in multiple federal appeals. We conduct discovery and write motions with trials and appeals in mind. And because we have represented both plaintiffs and defendants—including individuals and corporations—we may spot issues and arguments that more narrowly focused firms may overlook. We regularly go head-to-head with the government and much larger firms—and win.
Broad and deep experience.
We are litigators who handle a wide range of disputes, on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants, allowing us to bring fresh ideas that lawyers with narrower practices might overlook. We also have also developed significant experience in particular fields. Our lawyers regularly litigate commercial disputes on behalf of businesses, investors, executives, and consumers—from basic contract cases to complex securities and corporate-governance disputes. Others regularly represent criminal defendants in both local and federal courts, and have won major victories, including not guilty verdicts at trial and significant relief in post-conviction proceedings. And our lawyers have handled appeals in numerous state and federal appellate courts, including at the U.S. Supreme Court.
Personal Attention and Efficiency.
Although our partners started their careers at large, prestigious firms, our small size and lean staffing ensure that our clients get personal attention from our senior lawyers. We use technology to practice more efficiently, and our flexible billing models and minimal overhead keep costs under control.
