Civil Litigation

When in a dispute or facing potential litigation, putting your best foot forward at the outset is of paramount importance. As your civil litigation attorneys, we will work one-on-one with you to gather a comprehensive understanding of the dispute and your desired outcome. Using this information, we will then construct and present a compelling case in support of your position.


Intellectual Property

In today’s competitive atmosphere, intellectual property is the lifeline of many businesses. The protection of one’s hard-won intellectual property is a serious matter, and we apply that principle to routinely assist clients in all areas of intellectual property law. From copyright, trademark, and patent assets to data privacy, trade secrets, and domain names, our attorneys are well-versed in the subtleties of intellectual property law.


Corporate & Transactional

As transactional practice continues to evolve, the skill of the lawyers dealing with them becomes ever more important. At SLG, we know how critical each decision is to the well-being of your business. Due to this, our corporate lawyers stay nimble and diligent, working closely with you in an active advisory role to tailor the right legal strategy for success. 


Employment Law

Employment disputes can have destructive effects on both businesses and employees, but at SLG, we aim to change that. Our trusted employment law attorneys are dedicated to resolving disputes between employers and their employees as efficiently as possible so everyone can get back to work.

Of Counsel

“Just like I suspect is the case in many industries, the more I practice law, the more I realize that quality practice of law is as much an art form as it is a question of technical competence. Many attorneys have adequate technical knowledge, but being a great lawyer involves a healthy dose of creativity and interpersonal soft skills – things they definitely are not teaching in law school.”
