Decades of Experience Inside the Courtroom

Payton & Associates, LLC, understands that effective advocacy in commercial litigation and arbitration begins with in-depth research, a deep knowledge of legal procedures and true commitment to our clients. From that foundation, our firm builds a strong legal framework to support our clients’ position, determining facts, seeking evidence, tapping professional expertise and using our well-honed trial skills.

To resolve a high-stakes shareholders’ dispute, for example, our firm engaged one of the world’s experts on ink dating to show that a signature on a purported 1997 contract had actually been signed in the previous six months. In a $7 million commercial foreclosure case, our team carefully reviewed the bank’s loan documentation, including the original application, resulting in a settlement that saved our clients nearly $4 million.

These are two examples of how Payton & Associates, LLC, serves domestic and international corporations and high net worth individuals in complex business litigation and related practice areas.

We represent clients in cases involving commercial real estate and construction litigation, shareholder and partnership disputes, fine art litigation and probate and other estate administration disputes.
