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 impressive academic credentials, national law firm experience and proven ability 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 plaintiffs, we have obtained many multi-million dollar verdicts, including the largest compensatory damages award in the United States in 2006, and the largest punitive damages award in Oregon history. As defense counsel, one reason we achieve favorable settlements is 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.
