Commercial Litigation

Redmon, Peyton & Braswell attorneys represent the Firm’s clients in litigation in the federal and state courts of Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, with the focus on the Alexandria federal court and the Circuit Court for Fairfax County. The firm’s litigation expertise covers these six areas:

  • Trials

  • Local Counsel

  • Federal and Virginia Tax Litigation

  • Foreign Judgments

  • eDiscovery and Information Governance

Alexandria is home to the Rocket Docket, the Alexandria Division of U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia. We regularly try commercial disputes before juries and in bench trials in the Alexandria federal court and in the Virginia state courts.

We identify our frequent role as Local Counsel in commercial and IP matters before the Alexandria federal court as one of the Firm’s litigation strengths. The Court’s rules and practice impose a broad range of duties on local counsel unlike those in many other judicial districts. Indeed, the Alexandria federal court views local counsel as the primary counsel and expects local counsel to keep the case on the fast-paced trial track.

Redmon, Peyton & Braswell’s trial lawyers have tried federal tax cases in the U.S. Tax Court and in the Court of Federal Claims. We also have challenged the state and local tax authorities in the Virginia courts and in administrative proceedings on issues involving the local business personal property taxes and the BPOL taxes.

The Washington, D.C. area is a multi-jurisdiction legal maze. Our lawyers practice in the federal and state courts in all three jurisdictions—Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. This access to the court proves especially valuable in matters where the real issues are collections and foreign judgments.
