A Florida Business Litigation Law Firm
Cantrell Zwetsch is singularly focused on providing world-class legal representation for high-stakes business litigation. We are not a law firm that claims to handle all legal matters the best, regardless of practice area. Wise clients know better. We are instead a go-to law firm for those with business disputes that must be resolved with success. Read below to understand why we can objectively be trusted for that purpose.
Our Florida Attorney Team: “Top 10” Talent
Every attorney at Cantrell Zwetsch either attended a Top 10 law school or graduated in the top 10% of their law class. Additionally, the attorney in charge of representing each client has practiced in business litigation for many years, with subject matter experience ranging from non-competes, employment claims, and executive compensation to shareholder derivatives, securities, business divorces, and whistleblowers. Despite our credentials, we ultimately judge ourselves on the outcomes and satisfaction of our clients. View our team here and our clients’ feedback here.

Our Litigation & Trial Approach: Strategic & Relentless
As a firm hallmark, we prepare a detailed strategy upfront with an eye towards the client’s final objective and costs parameters. That requires an early analysis and deep understanding of the facts, the relevant law, and motivations affecting each side. In addition to only hiring attorneys that are strategic and relentlessly detail oriented by nature, we have also formalized those attributes as part of our core values. We do not believe losing is ever an acceptable outcome and losing almost never occurs when we are hired.
Our Proprietary Internal Systems for Handling Business Disputes
Unique to Cantrell Zwetsch, we utilize a sophisticated internal technology-based software system that ensures each lawsuit is handled in accordance with our litigation and trial best practices. The proprietary litigation and trial system was created and is continuedly improved based on the input of our attorneys. Practically, this means clients always receive litigation and trial services that are based on the input of the collective – a team of highly credentialed business litigators – not just one attorney.

Florida is one of the largest states in the U.S. and is quickly growing, with over 21.4 million residents.
