Twohig Caplan’s attorneys have a wealth of experience handling complex commercial litigation in a wide range of business disputes from the inception of a case through trial. The firm’s partners actively practice in all Massachusetts courts, before administrative agencies, and in arbitration.
We recognize that some cases require alternative dispute resolution to reach a quick and favorable resolution, while other cases require comprehensive discovery, trial and appellate work. Our mission is simple: to resolve our clients’ disputes creatively, efficiently, and, when necessary, aggressively.
Our clients include large international corporations, regional and community banks, medical device start-ups, closely held and family businesses, non-profits, executives, professionals, and individual clients. The depth and diversity of our litigation experience provides us with the ability to tailor our approach to the needs of each client and to the demands of each case.
