Robbins Russell was founded on the premise that complex criminal and civil litigation does not typically require hordes of lawyers and should not entail the exorbitant cost structure of many large law firms. We believe that philosophy serves our clients well, allowing us to bring to bear the substantial experience of our lawyers at every stage of litigation. The firm's lawyers have tried to verdict more than 150 civil and criminal cases, in such disparate areas as adversary proceedings in Bankruptcy Court, product liability, commercial fraud, auditor malpractice, employment discrimination, Federal Torts Claims Act, breach of contract, ERISA violations, tax evasion, mail and wire fraud, obstruction of justice, espionage, property crimes, and embargo violations.
Our firm has also handled a wide array of civil and criminal cases that were resolved favorably before trial. These include the defense of securities fraud and antitrust class actions seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in damages, RICO claims, and tort actions arising from multi-million dollar business transactions. We have represented individual plaintiffs in cases alleging defamation and pharmaceutical malpractice. Additionally, we have participated in a number of cases addressing emerging issues of Internet law, including actions against Internet service providers seeking identification of individual subscribers and a lawsuit challenging a state anti-spam statute.
Representative clients for trial litigation include Bank of America, Northrop Grumman, Las Vegas Sands Corporation, major hedge funds, several major accounting firms, three major telecommunications providers, a major international restaurant chain, shareholders in publicly traded companies, and individual defendants in criminal cases. We have also represented numerous national trade associations and non-profit groups.
