Gary Lambert, the firm’s founder, tried his first jury trial at the age of 22 as a Marine Corps criminal prosecutor after his first year of law school. Since then, he has successfully litigated hundreds of cases before juries and judges on behalf of and against individuals, small businesses, large corporations, individual states and the United States of America.
The present litigation team at Lambert Shortell & Connaughton compliments Gary’s 35+ years of litigation experience with skilled, tech-savvy, seasoned trial attorneys and paralegals. One of the firm’s many “rules” on litigation is this: treat every patent, trademark or copyright application as if we know we are going to trial with it. If you plan on winning when you draft a patent or trademark application, you’ll win at trial.
While the firm prides itself on its litigation successes, not all cases can or should be tried in front of a jury or judge. Some clients and cases can best be served by settlement, mediation, arbitration or other forms of alternative dispute resolution. When it comes to “working things out,” our attorneys have been extremely successful at negotiating with other attorneys and individuals and coming up with unique resolutions to conflicts. We often hear “I would have never thought of that” from our clients as we work through settlement discussions.
In addition to helping our many clients in and around the Massachusetts and New Hampshire area, we have a very successful record assisting out-of-state clients and their attorneys as “local counsel” in the courts of those states. Please call or email us to discuss how we may assist and represent you in that fashion.
Here are some of the many litigation areas we have expertise in:
