The Law Office of Ihsan Dogramaci is a litigation firm. We handle business disputes, corporate governance-related disputes, copyright and trademark disputes, as well as other litigation matters. Representative clients include large financial institutions and multinational companies, as well as individuals and smaller companies. Our small size offers us the flexibility to handle large cases nimbly and all cases with attention and total responsiveness to our clients.
Whether our clients have needed us to quickly seek a temporary restraining order, to collect hundreds of thousands of electronic documents and manage a team of contract attorneys through a shortened time frame for discovery, or to shepherd through trial a case involving a dozen far-flung fact witnesses and a half-dozen expert witnesses, this firm has demonstrated its ability to serve its clients. We are experienced in arbitration proceedings and in trials in state and federal courts.
