Cable Huston’s litigation team delivers sophisticated strategy while constantly balancing exceptional case preparation and opportunities to resolve disputes efficiently. The litigation team is comprised of trial attorneys who share a philosophy of preparedness: we view each case—from pre-pleading analysis and discovery to motions practice and witness preparation—through the lens of closing argument. We understand that the best solutions for clients are earned by proving the case to their opponent, or, if necessary, to the court or jury. We practice in state and federal courts at both the trial and appellate levels throughout the Pacific Northwest. The litigation team also represents clients in arbitration, mediation, and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings.

We have represented several of the premier corporations in Oregon, including the Portland Trail Blazers, Precision Castparts Corp., and Waste Management.  We act as regional counsel to several national and multinational corporations as well as primary counsel to home-grown mid-sized Oregon businesses and private individuals. 

Cable Huston’s litigation team has experience in all aspects of commercial litigation including disputes involving complex contracts, business torts, sports and entertainment law, corporate governance, insurance defense, securities, environmental compliance, and energy procurement and distribution. Cable Huston’s litigation practice also includes construction defect, real estate, hazardous waste disputes, products liability, white collar regulatory defense, and internal investigations.
