Commercial Litigation
I worked with Harrigan Leyh Farmer & Thomsen extensively over about a two year period on a complex litigation matter. The firm was able to really understand the issues in the case, provide solid legal agruments and finally a compelling presentation of the law and facts. I would definitely rate them as high or higher than any firm I have worked with in my career, and I have worked with some of the best NY law firms.
