Commercial/Business Law and Litigation


Daniel Coker Horton & Bell is a trial firm – successful complex and commercial litigation is the cornerstone of our reputation.  Daniel Coker’s founding partner, Joe H. Daniel, prosecuted cases on both sides of the aisle involving everything from banking to business interruption when the “silk stocking” firms considered litigation unseemly. By the 1960s he was known for his skill and ethics in handling complex commercial, construction, banking and bonding disputes. On this foundation Mr. Daniel built the firm’s commercial practice in which we strive to uphold his values of the highest legal ethics, hard work, disciplined but creative planning, and adaptive execution to deliver client objectives.  

Our commercial/business litigation attorneys have successfully handled disputes touching almost every industry and type of claim which might be raised in modern business disputes. In handling these cases we draw on a team of ten active AV Preeminent rated lawyers, including a group recognized in Best Lawyers in America in Litigation (Banking & Finance, Commercial, Construction, Insurance, Securities, Mass Tort and Class Actions – Defendants, and Municipal Litigation); and Substantive Law (Construction, Corporate, Insurance, Energy, Natural Resources, and Oil & Gas). These attorneys are supported by a bench of talented young lawyers and the use of the evolving technology to continue pursuing our founder’s values.
