Commercial disputes can threaten a company’s financial position, as well as its business reputation and stability. The attorneys at Davis Rothwell have decades of experience litigating complex commercial litigation cases.

Firm members litigate contract and warranty breaches, unlawful trade practices, fraud, partnership disputes, interference with contractual relations, non-compete agreements, breach of fiduciary duties, and other areas of commercial litigation.


With over 35 years of experience handling civil litigation, the firm is regularly called upon to represent business clients involved in legal disputes. These cases and issues are as broad as our clients’ needs. We have handled modest rental disputes to injunctive relief involving over $24,000,000 in disputed debts and assets, and many disputes in between.

The firm’s unique and longstanding focus on legal malpractice defense exposes our attorneys to an array of business matters, as the malpractice cases often involve litigating in whole or in part the underlying dispute; “the case-within-the case.”

We are regularly retained to defend our commercial clients pre-litigation, in binding arbitration, and throughout the state and federal courts of Oregon and Washington. Our representation does not end at the trial court level, as our lawyers regularly argue before the state and federal appellate courts in Oregon, Washington, and the Ninth Circuit.
