Business Litigation

For most, litigation is a last resort when all other options have failed. You have tried negotiating, you have tried resolving differences outside of court, but nothing has worked. If this is your situation, the law firm of Foos & Lentz can intervene on your behalf. Staying out of court may still be an option — we have successfully used both mediation and arbitration, even in serious cases. However, we are also fully prepared to advocate for your interests before a judge. Our lawyers have experience in the state and federal court systems in Dayton and the surrounding counties, at the trial court and appellate levels. We have also litigated cases across the country. We have a long track record of success and will work tirelessly for you.

Efficient, Tailored Legal Solutions for Your Business Needs

We understand that you do not have unlimited time and resources for legal action. To that end, we are committed to resolving your legal matter as efficiently as possible. This does not mean that we will cut corners, but rather that we will always identify the most direct route to accomplish your goals. Often this means aggressively pursuing settlements outside the courtroom to minimize the timeline to resolution. And because our attorneys can litigate across the country, no matter where your legal matters occur, we are on your side when and where you need us.

Testimonial Quote

They are the very best!! Don’t worry day and night about a legal matter, such as an employment issue. After my consultation with Mary, I left feeling like all the stress had been lifted off my shoulders. They sent me updates with every development as it occurred. In a few weeks they had the job done, an excellent settlement in a short time. If you need someone to care about you and work for you, call Mary. Extremely satisfied.
