Whether a client needs complex litigation, trial advocacy or appellate relief, Shaw Cowart LLP provides both plaintiff advocacy and defense representation, from pursuit of personal injury and wrongful death compensation on behalf of accident victims to defending corporations accused of distributing dangerous and defective products. Our comprehensive services include business and commercial litigation, intellectual property and antitrust litigation, insurance coverage disputes, workplace accident lawsuits and other civil disputes.

We welcome attorney referrals and requests. Shaw Cowart LLP is regularly engaged by corporate counsel and other law firms to try complex cases. We also provide risk management and trial consulting to businesses and attorneys.

Despite our courtroom reputation, we have intentionally maintained a small firm ethos. Although we litigate against the best, clients have direct access to the lawyers of our firm, rather than being shunted off to paralegals. We strive to be accessible and responsive to clients as their legal situations unfold and challenges arise.
