Practice Areas

Civil Litigation

Litigation is an integral component of Ritzert & Leyton’s services.  We represent clients in a variety of business and commercial disputes.  As our practice has grown, we have provided services involving investigations, fraud, breach of contract, claims arising out of acquisitions, indemnification, restrictive covenants, confidential information including intellectual property rights and trade secrets, employment issues, and related commercial business disputes.

As postsecondary education enterprises have grown and consolidated, a critical need for timely and specialized regulatory litigation expertise developed.  Such matters often involve complex business issues in addition to regulatory issues.  The firm’s litigation experience and team is designed to meet such needs.  Our experience representing businesses that regularly do business with the federal government enables us to handle government enforcement actions and controversies.  The defense of False Claims Act matters brought by the government or qui tam relators on behalf of the government in the areas of postsecondary education and government contracting are an integral aspect of our litigation practice.
