Themis attorneys understand the complexities of commercial law and bring decades of experience in litigation to state and federal trial and appellate courts throughout the country and in international forums. As a solutions-centered law firm, we formulate strategies that best fit the client’s legal objectives and pursue the right result, whether through negotiated settlement or by jury verdict.


Themis represents institutional investors that have suffered losses from unfair and deceptive practices, dishonesty and fraud perpetrated by Wall Street and international financial institutions. We seek justice on their behalf through vigorous litigation or by negotiated resolution, providing them with recourse to right the wrongs committed against them. Themis also represents plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of other commercial disputes. We design a resolution path tailored to best fit the needs of our clients, and have the experience and judgment to aggressively pursue a just result.



Themis represents businesses and individuals caught in the government’s sights for alleged violations of export control laws, anti-corruption and bribery enforcement, and securities and tax violations. We defend their rights, reputations and financial well-being in criminal and civil investigations and prosecutions by state and federal agencies, including the SEC.



Our skills and experience are especially important at a time when rules, regulations and laws governing business activities and relationships have expanded exponentially and show no signs of abating. What once may have been a normal commercial process can now lead to lawsuits and criminal charges with the potential for financial ruin, loss of reputation and even imprisonment.



At Themis, we know a poorly managed defense and a lost trial can cost millions of dollars in ruined reputations and other damages. Themis mounts strategic, penetrating defenses, starting with the first indication of an investigation and on through appellate courts when necessary. To help clients avoid problems with the government, we provide counsel on correct procedures for staying in compliance with laws governing business practices.
