Dmitry Shifrin believes the foundation of any client relationship is to act as a trusted advisor instead of simply as a litigator, considering all aspects of a client’s business and what actions best suit their business objectives.  He is well-versed in risk management and strategy development, not only in litigation, but also in pre-dispute exposure analysis and resolution, including mediations, arbitrations, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

When a matter goes to court, Dmitry’s experience covers all aspects of litigation, including handling dispositive motions and hearings, pursuing and defending requests for injunctive relief, and trial work before state and federal trial courts and multidistrict panels.  For the most difficult matters to resolve, Dmitry has pursued and defended clients’ positions in state and federal appellate courts. 

Dmitry has represented clients across diverse industries, serving as counsel to numerous public and private corporations and financial institutions in a variety of disputes within the areas of commercial litigation, class actions, product liability and mass torts, health care litigation, and insurance recovery.
