The firm handles a wide range of cases, including complex cases involving contractual and business disputes, securities and antitrust law, consumer law, labor and employment law, products liability, director and officer liability, qui tam, and state and federal investigations. The firm has represented companies and individuals across a variety of industries, including energy and natural resources, construction, insurance/reinsurance, real estate, banking and finance, hospitality, technology, and entertainment.
C&S advises clients in a range of business solutions. The firm's lawyers have assisted with entity selection for startups, modification of organizations for ongoing businesses, transactions and contracts, including asset sales and acquisitions, master services agreements, and form contracts for consumer transactions. C&S has counseled businesses on managing their risk and insurance, working on securing trademarks, copyrights and patents (through associated patent counsel), keeping trade secrets through NDAs and noncompete agreements and evaluating governmental reporting and compliance. The firm has grown from a litigation focus to a broad business law firm.
For some clients, C&S serves as their “Outside General Counsel.” Many small to mid-size companies cannot afford to have an in-house attorney or legal department, and some larger companies need advice for their regional offices. C&S attorneys fill this role for several clients, providing ready access to legal advice and business solutions. The firm helps clients with business transactions, acquisitions, employment and HR matters, governmental relations, including administrative and regulatory issues, and risk management consulting. The attorneys of the firm work as a member of the client’s management team—just a phone call or site visit away when needed.
