Alden L. Atkins
Partner — Commercial & Business Litigation
Washington
The key to successfully representing a client in a dispute is to thoroughly understand my client’s business. That way, I can understand my client’s goals and needs, and what motivates the actions of people and companies. That helps me better formulate a strategy to achieve my client’s goals, develop themes and arguments for our case, and effectively examine and cross-examine witnesses. By deeply understanding the underlying business, industry and technical matters, I know when an opponent’s arguments or a witness’s testimony just don’t make sense.

To provide first-rate service to clients facing civil litigation or a government investigation, you first have to understand their business and industry. That is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job: working alongside the excellent lawyers at V&E and directly with our clients to learn everything we can about their business and help solve the complex legal issues they are facing.

I love oral arguments. I love the courtroom. I love the constitutional issues I work on, especially in First Amendment cases. I have broad experience that benefits clients and allows me to help younger lawyers, in client work, in CLEs and in pro bono work.

Partner — Commercial & Business Litigation
I want my clients to feel comfortable that I understand their business and where they're coming from. I want to learn what they do, how they do it, and why they do it. I talk to everyone I can, from the general counsel to the person in the field. You can’t write a brief or craft an argument that has the drama and verity of good storytelling unless you can tell the story in the client’s voice.
