Ball Janik LLP has built one of the Pacific Northwest’s premier commercial litigation practices, perennially ranked as an industry leader by Chambers USA. Our trial lawyers have a proven ability to efficiently evaluate cases with an eye toward resolution and, where resolution is not possible, to take complex cases to trial and win. Our approach is pragmatic and cost-effective for clients. The results we achieve speak volumes. On behalf of the plaintiffs, we have obtained many multi-million-dollar verdicts, including the most significant compensatory damages award in the United States in 2006 and the largest punitive damages award in Oregon history. As defense counsel, we achieve favorable settlements because opposing counsel knows we are willing and able to go to trial. We have also been hired on the eve of important hearings and trials. We have the intellectual and organizational resources and experience to step in at any stage, on any matter, and drive the case to a successful outcome.
