General Civil Trial in Both Federal & State Courts

London Amburn’s Civil Trial Group manages a diverse and active civil litigation practice, ranging from cases of simple negligence to complex business and tort litigation on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants. With over 150 years’ combined experience litigating cases in state, federal and appellate courts in Tennessee and Kentucky, the attorneys in this group work as a team to provide focused and personalized representation throughout the lifespan of a lawsuit.

Parties are often uncomfortable and dismayed by the complexities of litigation; accordingly, a fundamental goal of the attorneys in the firm’s Civil Trial Group is to provide thoughtful counseling and communication at every stage of litigation, to help orient clients and empower them to make key decisions. To achieve the best outcome for clients, the attorneys in this practice group employ cutting edge trial techniques including professional jury consultants, mock trial sampling and expert exhibit and document production companies.

The Civil Trial Group places great emphasis on keeping abreast of trends and changes in the dynamic field of civil litigation, regularly lecturing, writing articles and hosting conferences for clients and professional groups. Several attorneys in this group teach at the University of Tennessee College of Law in the areas of trial practice, legal writing, and appellate advocacy. The group’s attorneys also participate in nationally recognized trial academies and seminars to enhance skills and advance the interests of our clients.
