Gerald J. Houlihan

I am a trial lawyer.  I have more than fifty years of experience in complex commercial civil litigation and my track record demonstrates success, reliability and cost effectiveness.  I diligently work with my clients to develop the most appropriate legal strategy for their case.  In my experience, the most effective manner to successfully conclude litigation is to be willing, and able, to try the case in court.  This attitude promotes early and beneficial settlements.  In my career, I have been lead counsel in more than 95 jury trials and briefed and argued more than 85 appeals. My clients have included business individuals, corporations, pharmaceutical companies, financial institutions and insurance companies. My experience in business litigation enhances my ability to provide the most effective legal representation in complex cases.
