Skilled Strategies for Solutions to Your Legal Matters

Kaufman & Forman has the experience and background to handle a wide-range of legal problems. We recognize that each client has a unique need requiring a special legal answer and we strive to deliver client-centric involvement and results. We are a Martindale Preeminent Peer AV rated law firm and have litigated cases at the trial and appellate levels in Georgia, other states and many other federal jurisdictions including the US Tax Court.

The firm’s general practice includes business and business litigation, intellectual property, trade secrets, restrictive covenants and fiduciary law litigation, business and corporate formation, mergers and acquisition. We also handle traditional general practice matters such as contracts, domestic relations and wills and trusts.

The firm views litigation as one of many approaches in addressing the client’s needs and has considerable experience in mediation and arbitration as an alternative dispute resolution mechanism other than litigation.

In an era, where there is no longer a “small” business litigation matter due to the proliferation of emails thereby causing tens of thousands of documents to be produced in discovery, the firm has developed sophisticated skills using advanced litigation computer software in managing cases of this type.

Contact us today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Business and Commercial Litigation
  • Appeals
  • Intellectual Property
  • Trade Secrets
  • Restrictive Covenants and Fiduciary Law Litigation
  • Corporate Formation

Kaufman & Forman, P.C. prides itself on being big enough to deliver results, but small enough to care about each and every client. We fully understand that a client’s problem does not end at 5:00 PM and our lawyers are consistently accessible.
