The core of our litigation practice is assisting businesses in commercial disputes, and the core of most disputes is a contract.

Godfrey & Kahn's litigators are well versed in contract and commercial law, assisting businesses in all aspects of contract and related business disputes, including commercial disputes over merger and acquisition agreements, supply contracts, Uniform Commercial Code rights, contracts for services, and torts arising out of contracts, such as claims of third-party interference with contracts and misrepresentations made before the execution of a contract. We have assisted our clients in both enforcing contract terms and in seeking relief from them.

Due in large part to the strong commercial, transactional background of our firm, our litigators are extremely knowledgeable in the area of contract law, understand the nuances of contract drafting and interpretation, and focus on enforcing and limiting contract remedies. For example, our attorneys have been at the forefront of litigating and defining Wisconsin's "economic loss doctrine," which substantially limits potential plaintiffs to bargained-for contract remedies, instead of punitive damages and other tort remedies that can be catastrophic to our business clients. We also have assisted businesses in obtaining emergency relief to enforce contract rights, forcing parties immediately to abide by contract terms to avoid potentially disastrous interruptions in supply chains or other vital business operations.

When a contract or other commercial dispute arises, our clients need experienced attorneys who can quickly, efficiently and effectively assess the dispute and protect their business interests. Our Litigation Practice Group is uniquely positioned to do exactly that, not only in Wisconsin, but also across the country and in tribunals throughout the world.
