Firm Details

Harkins Cunningham's lawyers have worked together for years on matters involving business advocacy, complex litigation, corporate counseling and investigations, taxation, economic regulation and competition law.

Our clients are business and public entities, boards of directors, industry coalitions, law firms and other professional organizations, universities, and individuals with significant business interests. From our offices in Philadelphia and Washington, we regularly work as co–counsel with other law firms and with a variety of experts to effectively and efficiently serve our clients throughout North America. To do so, we:

Resolve controversies through court or agency litigation, or through alternative means of dispute resolution.

Where appropriate, highlight the public merit of our clients’ private activities by going back to basics to assure that the decision–maker understands why and how a public or private enterprise, properly pursuing its immediate stakeholders’ interests, also benefits the public interest.

Devise and implement litigation, appellate, regulatory, legislative and other strategies and initiatives to define or redefine the legal environment for our clients’ activities.

Assure that our clients’ strategies comport with applicable legal requirements through, for example, establishing antitrust and other compliance programs, developing corporate codes of conduct and board committee charters, and conducting regulatory audits.

Advise on corporate strategy and corporate governance issues and assist in internal corporate investigations by audit committees and special litigation committees.

Help clients in a wide range of industries to manage the problems and opportunities presented by existing or proposed legislation or regulatory schemes governing those industries.

Represent clients in multi–lateral, intra–industry and inter–governmental negotiations over such matters as industry standards, allocations of resources and jurisdictional responsibilities, and in the design and execution of multi–party litigation, regulatory and legislative strategies.

Counsel with respect to securities law disclosure and compliance, various aspects of transactional matters, tax legislative policy formation, and business taxation issues.
