The litigators at Partridge Snow & Hahn offer effective and assertive representation to a broad range of clients in both state and federal courts as well as before arbitrators and administrative agencies, including state commissions and local boards. We are committed to providing the highest level of advocacy on behalf of our clients.
Our approach is to provide the very best counsel to our clients in all phases of litigation, which includes activities designed to avoid litigation, to expeditiously resolve litigation where appropriate, and to vigorously and efficiently prepare for and try cases in court.
Our litigators experience runs the spectrum and reflects a breadth and depth of experience in all forms of trial work and in matters that are important to our clients (including bet the business disputes). We are not just litigators but trial lawyers who have experience trying cases in both state and federal court in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. We are recognized as a go-to law firm for important disputes in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and are often retained by clients represented by some of the leading law firms around the world when their disputes take them to our back yards – where we are not only experienced, we are also well-known and respected by the bench and the bar.
Though many of our lawyers have particularized experience in different areas of the law, we value and have maintained flexibility across the firm’s many practice areas to not only serve our clients when disputes arise but, in appropriate circumstances, to prevent disputes or issues from becoming litigation. We have advised clients and litigated in contractual and commercial matters, environmental, energy, real estate, and land use, labor and employment matters, construction, health care, anti trust, Constitutional law, unfair trade practice cases, admiralty and maritime law, as well as banking, and intellectual property actions.
Representing Private and Public Business
We routinely represent publicly and privately held businesses, financial institutions, colleges and universities, hospitals, insurance companies, and governmental agencies.
Working as a team, both internally and with the client, we utilize the full resources of the Firm’s many practice areas to give responsive services to meet our clients’ varied needs.
"All of them are very good and can make decisions on their own. They have big-firm experience, but can apply it to a small-firm environment, something that we appreciate."
