Business Litigation & Counseling

Caplan Cobb specializes in the successful resolution of business disputes. This is our core expertise—winning challenging cases by combining exceptional litigation skill with a deep understanding of our client’s business and goals.

A reputation for success.

We have successfully represented businesses, owners, investors, officers, and directors in disputes involving:

Corporate Governance Employment Disputes Fiduciary Duties Internal Investigations
Officer & Director Litigation Partnership/Joint Venture Disputes Trade Secrets Securities Litigation

Top-tier litigation experience; small-firm service.

Before founding Caplan Cobb, Mike Caplan and James Cobb clerked for federal judges and practiced law at Atlanta’s most prestigious business-litigation firms. Working alongside some of the most prominent lawyers in the Southeast, they successfully prosecuted and defended a wide range of business matters, achieving multi-million-dollar recoveries for plaintiffs and complete defense verdicts for defendants. They founded Caplan Cobb to offer the same first-rate legal services, but with the personal attention, responsiveness, and flexibility of a small firm.

We offer business-minded creativity and fee structures.

Our goal in every dispute is to obtain the best outcome quickly, efficiently, and with minimal disruption to your business. We learn our client’s business objectives and tailor our litigation strategy to those objectives. Because we gain a deep understanding of your business, we will find opportunities for value that others may miss.

We also price our legal services competitively. We offer flexible fee arrangements designed to maximize value and predictability for our clients. We prefer to align our incentives with yours, by sharing risks and rewards.

Trusted advisors.

We are more than just business litigators—we are trusted business advisors and counselors. We are often retained to give advice concerning ongoing business and legal matters—matters like corporate governance, corporation formation, contract review and negotiation, employment-related advice, and risk management.

We approach these matters the same way we approach business litigation. We will listen to you and learn your business, your needs, and your goals. We will be direct with you and give you candid, straightforward advice. Our goal is to earn your trust so that we can add value to your business.
