What We Do
Kastorf Law helps individuals, companies, and organizations handle their most challenging litigation, appellate, and regulatory issues. Our practice is centered around three pillars:
- Trial litigation and strategy
- Regulatory litigation and counseling (including enforcement actions)
- Appellate litigation
Below is a summary of what we do. A lot of law firm websites claim their attorneys are experts at everything. That’s not Kastorf Law’s approach. On each of our practice area pages, we’ll tell you exactly the sort of problems you should hire us for (and when we might not be the right fit).
