Experienced Litigators and Business Strategists

Law is a service profession. Boyle/Apelman is passionate about helping our clients make smart business decisions. We are problem-solvers who provide strategic advice to reach your end goal. Our record demonstrates that we have the talent and determination to win, but we also have the experience to advise clients whether to fight and how to succeed.

Above all we look for, and often find, business solutions first. If you need to litigate, we will represent you aggressively, intelligently and efficiently. We’ve proven this for our clients time and again.

It's about Experience

Boyle/Apelman offers representation in commercial transactions and disputes. Our clients range from individuals to mid-sized and established corporations, large, publicly-traded organizations, associations and foundations. We also provide local counsel services for national law firms.

Given our size and commitment to lean staffing, we offer our services to a distinct few that need the skill and experience we are able to bring to a legal matter. Our goal is to provide the best possible result given the circumstances. To do best what we know best. Our experience allows us to provide advice to our clients as to the likely outcome so they can determine the best course of action. Our lawyers have developed not only extensive experience in handling a variety of legal matters, but also have direct hands-on experience running businesses at the highest level. We believe the combination gives us a unique perspective which we provide to our clients.

Our expertise includes litigation, business law and agreements in a wide range of fields:

  • Securities
  • Patent Litigation
  • Real Estate
  • Issues of Lien Priority and Foreclosure
  • Probate
  • Estate Planning
  • Trade Secrets
  • Trademarks
  • Directors & Officers representation
  • Business Formation, Sale or Merger
  • Intellectual Property and Licensing
  • Employment Agreements


When dealing with complex issues such as patent litigation it is extremely important to have a law firm that can digest a vast amount of material,
formulate a strategy and execute. There are many law firms that know how to litigate at any cost. There are very few firms that can litigate
aggressively and efficiently. Boyle/Apelman is such a firm.

As a creative businessman, I need a law firm that can keep up with me and let me develop business and ideas but also tell me where the lines are.  Boyle/Apelman does that for me.
