Litigation / Risk Management

Serving as outside in-house counsel to our clients, Howe & Hutton, Ltd. knows it is often easier and less costly to keep our clients out of legal trouble than it is to get them out of legal trouble. To that end, we provide complete risk management services designed to mitigate the need for litigation or arbitration. As experienced trial and appellate lawyers, however, we represent our clients in federal and state trial courts and appellate courts whenever necessary. In addition, we represent clients in arbitration and mediation proceedings.

Since 1985, Howe & Hutton, Ltd., The Law Firm for Associations® and The Law Firm for Meeting Professionals®, has offered preventive strategies to help our clients avoid litigation in the future. We provide our clients with comprehensive help on compliance issues. Often, clients in the nonprofit and trade show communities turn to our firm with this question: Can this be done? By asking before making a move, our attorneys can help prevent problems from arising.

When problems and disputes do arise, we proceed with aggressive and knowledgeable litigation services. Whether through litigation, arbitration or forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), we represent clients in the following:

Howe & Hutton, Ltd. also drafts and files amicus briefs on behalf of organizations, associations and advocacy groups in state and federal courts.
