Unconventional Resolutions

At McArdle Franco we thrive on developing new and innovative ways to resolve our clients’ issues and challenges.

In all cases, we think in consequential terms, striving to understand the possible effects of our clients’ business documents and legal decisions.

Collaborative Practice Approach

We take a team approach in all that we do. Our partners regularly share and discuss ideas, cases and strategies as a group to develop creative methods and strategies that meet the needs of our clients. Where an issue calls for a specialized discipline, we collaborate with our vast and strategic network of top caliber professionals, to provide the best product for the diverse businesses we serve.

Long-Term Business Relationships

Our goal is to forge long-term relationships with our clients, and to serve as their first-stop when legal issues arise. Our success is in large part a product of the repeat business from clients whose trust we have earned and who repeatedly turn to our firm to guide them through legal issues.

Business Structuring


Every business dispute is a unique amalgam of the personalities, documents and issues involved. We approach every case with deference to this fact, to fashion short, medium and long-term strategies that balance the costs and benefits of dispute resolution. Whether the case requires an aggressive posture, or a quick resolution, in every case, our focus is to find an efficient and effective solution to the dispute.
