Practice Areas

What We Do


Commercial Litigation
We represent plaintiffs and defendants in a broad array of commercial disputes, in federal and state courts and in arbitration or mediation. Our lawyers often intervene before litigation arises, advising clients seeking to avoid legal action.

 

Intellectual Property
Intellectual property rights may be a company’s most valuable asset. Protecting those rights requires a comprehensive understanding of the law together with a strategic focus. We have tried and won one of the largest infringement cases in the United States.

Securities
We have represented both individuals and corporations as plaintiffs and defendants in securities industry matters including government lawsuits, tax appeals, and shareholder oppression investigations and lawsuits.                          

 

Bad Faith
When insurance companies wrongfully deny their policyholders a legitimate claim either for indemnity, damages or to provide a defense to a lawsuit, the policyholder may have a claim against the insurance company for acting in bad faith.

White Collar Criminal Defense
After the near-collapse of the American banking system, the prosecution of Enron and other high-profile cases, and highly publicized trials for insider trading (as in the case of Martha Stewart), companies and individual executives have increasingly […]

 

Class Actions
A class action presents unique substantive and procedural issues; we have the experience and expertise to successfully navigate that system. Class actions require strategic thinking from the outset to address both practical business realities as well as litigation objectives.

Entertainment/Sports
High profile entertainers, entertainment industry leaders, and athletes may find themselves the subject of civil disputes due in part to their celebrity status. We have represented some of the most famous athletes and celebrities in high stakes matters that could affect their careers.

 

Pro Bono
We believe that lawyers are important contributors to social change.  Keller/Anderle attorneys are tireless advocates for causes to improve our society and local community.  We represent pro bono clients on a wide range of matters.
