Litigation Overview

Over the course of eight decades, Whiteford, Taylor & Preston has earned a reputation as one of the leading trial law firms in the Mid-Atlantic, with a distinguished record of success pursuing and defending high stakes litigation.  Named the 2019 "Maryland Law Firm of the Year" by Benchmark Litigation and recognized by Chambers USA, U.S. News and World Report, Law360, SuperLawyers, Best Lawyers in America, Legal 500 and Martindale-Hubbell, among others, we provide sophisticated, cost-effective dispute resolution services to clients of every description, from Fortune 100 enterprises to middle market companies to government entities to nonprofit organizations and associations.  

Our attorneys are experienced practitioners, with financial, accounting and business backgrounds.  We practice before a wide range of tribunals, including all state and federal trial and appellate courts in the region, a wide variety of courts across the nation, administrative agencies and alternative dispute resolution forums.  

We treat every case as one that will go to trial, while developing creative ways to get difficult cases resolved without trial.  Our substantial “in-court” trial experience greatly enhances our ability to identify the legal, factual and commercial issues in a case, and to create a litigation strategy that is at once comprehensive – addressing issues from discovery through trial or settlement – and dynamic enough to adapt as necessary throughout the litigation.  And, we are expert at utilizing efficient state-of-the-art technology, whether for managing and streamlining discovery or for organizing and developing evidence and courtroom presentations.  

With more than 90 litigators, we serve clients locally, regionally and nationally.
