Hohmann Law is an Austin firm with a strong regional presence and national reach, offering expertise in nearly all aspects of litigation and corporate law. As a boutique firm, Hohmann Law provides creative, efficient solutions backed by a broad depth of knowledge and decades of experience. Our practice focuses on the following areas:
In the past few decades, business litigation has grown significantly in terms of scope and stakes. Today litigation has the potential to threaten a company’s reputation, assets, and even its continued operations. Businesses facing litigation need a lawyer who will aggressively protect their clients’ interests, whether positioned as a plaintiff or defendant.
Hohmann Law has extensive experience representing clients on both sides of the bench from a variety of industries. Our practice handles a broad array of commercial claims, including: breach of contract; breach of fiduciary duty; tortious interference with contracts and prospective business relationships; theft of trade secrets and proprietary information; non-competition covenants; antitrust; defamation and business disparagement; unfair competition; minority shareholder oppression; fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation in business transactions; and representation of technology companies in intellectual-property litigation.
Guy Hohmann’s background and expertise in business litigation and insurance coverage allows us to bring a high level of sophistication to all complex commercial matters. We regularly represent our commercial clients in multi-party, multi-district, and class-action litigation.
Professional Malpractice Litigation
Our Firm represents both plaintiffs and defendants in malpractice cases brought against lawyers, accountants, insurance and real-estate professionals, architects and engineers, corporate directors and officers, and securities brokers and dealers.
Class Action Litigation
The class action realm is complex and constantly evolving. There has been an increase in multi-district and consolidated class action litigation, as well as related regulatory proceedings and scrutiny of class action settlements. Coordination of class action or multi-district litigation can be a daunting task, but Hohmann Law has the necessary experience to manage these cases cost effectively and efficiently. Guy Hohmann has worked on scores of complex national class action cases, including high-profile securities fraud cases, Ponzi-related class actions, multi-district matters, and class actions involving issues of federal preemption that have been reviewed favorably by the U.S. Supreme Court.
From defeating or obtaining dismissal at the outset of litigation, to defeating or obtaining class certification, to the merits of the case, Guy Hohmann has proven experience defending and prosecuting complex class-action cases.
Ponzi and Shareholder Litigation
Hohmann Law represents or acts as equity receiver in matters brought by the SEC, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the FDIC, and other federal and state agencies. Many of these representations relate to alleged Ponzi schemes.
Guy Hohmann also has extensive experience both bringing and defending shareholder lawsuits against public and private companies, including individual, class, and derivative actions. Our attorneys also bring a wealth of knowledge regarding navigating internal investigations, and SEC and state regulator investigations and enforcement actions.
Insurance coverage is often an integral and determinative aspect of a variety of types of litigation. In order to maximize available coverage, it is critical that businesses and individuals facing litigation retain an attorney with the ability to conduct policy analysis and claim preparation.
Guy Hohmann has decades of experience advising and representing corporate policyholders in complex coverage disputes involving a variety of types of insurance policies, including general liability, D&O, and first party property (including business interruption). Hohmann Law also provides claim assistance to policyholders in disputes regarding real estate and other insurance policies.
