“Many people think they need a ‘bulldog.’ The phrase is interesting because bulldogs are slow and not very aggressive. The more appropriate thing to look for is somebody who is a tactician. Strategy in litigation is everything. You need someone who loves to play chess or, as I call it, ‘psychological warfare.’”

PHOENIX – The Frutkin Law Firm has become the first Arizona practice to take advantage of the state bar’s trade name rule. It announced it will rebrand as Radix Law on Jan. 1 2017.

There is a long tradition in the practice of law: the name of a firm includes the surnames of the most prominent partners. As law has become such a big business over the past decade, the largest practices in the world are names of partners who have long since passed away.

This tradition was also required by the Arizona Bar until recently. Now, firms can ditch the commas in favor of a more universal trade name.

Radix, in Latin, means “root.” It can mean the root of a tree, the root of knowledge or the root of a number. While the firm’s attorneys come from all over the world, they have decided to be rooted in Arizona.

“Our new name reflects our values,” says Principal Jonathan Frutkin. “We are a business law firm that helps our clients pursue opportunities and fights for them when challenged – and we are rooted right here in Arizona. It is also an acknowledgement that we have grown from being a solo legal practice into a business law firm with almost a dozen lawyers.”

The Frutkin Law Firm was formed in 2007 and now has 11 attorneys with decades of experience. They serve companies, individuals and families throughout Arizona in business and corporate law and related areas, ranging from taxation and asset protection to bankruptcy and estate planning. Radix Law leads the Valley of the Sun in estate planning and trust administration law. Radix Law’s attorneys are respected sources in their field and contribute to local and national media.

When disputes occur in the business world, the attorneys of Radix Law will work diligently to protect their clients’ interests both inside and outside of the courtroom.  Our commercial litigation attorneys provide advice and counsel and litigate cases for businesses of all sizes in Arizona and throughout the country.

Radix Law meets the needs of our diverse business clients with swift responses to their requests and cost-effective solutions to thorny issues.  We work hand in hand with our clients to reach a result that is best for their business.

Commercial litigation can occur in almost any context.  At Radix Law, our attorneys are seasoned in numerous fields of commercial litigation, including:

  • Business dissolution
  • Insurance coverage
  • Real estate litigation
  • Shareholder issues
  • Employment disputes
  • Debt collection
  • Breach of contract
  • Interference with business relationships
  • Franchise issues
  • Partnership disputes

Our commercial litigation attorneys are skilled negotiators with a depth of experience in handling all phases of litigation.  We offer comprehensive advice and strategies that take into account the business as a whole — not just the legal matter at hand.

Complex Commercial Litigation

The commercial litigators of Radix Law are accomplished at handling complicated business law matters of all sizes.  With a network of legal, financial and technical experts and a dedicated team of attorneys in our office, we can bring together a cross-disciplinary team to meet our clients’ litigation needs.  With these resources at hand, our attorneys can manage sophisticated litigation on broad range of business issues.  Whether the case involves filing suit against an insurer to ensure coverage for a loss, resolving corporate shareholder matters or litigating a dispute between business partners, our lawyers will aggressively pursue all available legal options to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients.

Commercial Dispute Resolution

In certain situations, litigation is not the best option for the parties to a commercial dispute.  Radix Law’s commercial litigation group has expertise in negotiating resolutions to business disputes in a number of ways.  Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) gives our clients the chance to resolve legal issues in a more cost and time-efficient manner than the litigation process typically affords.  Our attorneys are seasoned at handling business disputes before private arbitrators, in binding and non-binding mediation and other forums.  Negotiating a solution outside of the courtroom is often highly beneficial to our clients, allowing them to focus their efforts on growing their business.  When ADR is not a viable or advisable option for our clients, we will pursue litigation to achieve our clients’ goals.
