Business Attorney David M. Walker, Esq. is in partnership with The Schenk Law Firm, a boutique litigation firm that represents small to medium-sized companies currently engaged in commercial disputes.
Our firm handles:
We are business litigators, and our firm resolves conflicts that occur between businesses and their competitors, customers, clients, associates, or from within. Our firm quickly enters the dispute at any stage, from initial quarrel to settlement negotiation to litigation, and diligently works to achieve the most profitable results for our clients under the law.
At our firm, we first develop an understanding of the client’s operational and market strategies, so that our legal guidance during the conflict melds seamlessly with the company’s overall goals. Consequently, our attorneys, either when advocating in the courtroom or in the boardroom, operate as an extension of the client’s business. This cost-effective approach ensures that interruptions to our client’s operations and revenue-generation are minimized throughout the duration of the dispute.
