Guin, Stokes & Evans Law Firm | Birmingham Business Litigation Law Firm

We do one thing: civil litigation – primarily complex business, financial and class action litigation.

We don’t draft wills, lobby Congress, give tax advice, defend DUIs, draft shopping center leases or negotiate collective bargaining agreements. No divorces.

Instead, our cases typically involve accounting issues, business valuations, shareholder control fights, derivative actions, business “divorces” among co-owners, covenants not to compete, municipal bond defaults, securities fraud, antitrust violations, whistleblower claims, and class actions.

We represent both plaintiffs and defendants, in state court, federal court or before arbitration panels, in Alabama and around the country. We’ve even taken cases all the way to the United States Supreme Court.

We have offices in Birmingham, Alabama, and Chicago, Illinois.

We have an “AV” peer-review rating for the firm from Martindale-Hubbell, as does every member of the firm. Individual attorneys are listed in The Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers, and the firm is listed in The Best Law Firms in America in the areas of Commercial Litigation and Securities Litigation.
