  • Commercial Litigation

  • Our lawyers have experience in litigation matters for businesses, institutions and individual clients. We thoroughly review with our clients their goals and risk tolerance in any litigation matter. With that knowledge we employ a multi-practice area team approach to litigation throughout the course of the representation. Our goal is to identify and to leverage discreet opportunities and advantages for our clients that best allow them to control the outcome on favorable terms, consistent with their tolerance for risk. We take seriously the obligation to advise our clients about the advantages and disadvantages of litigation and of alternative dispute resolution options such as mediation and arbitration. Regardless of a matter's complexity, each client is provided a principal point of contact in the firm.

    While our lawyers have handled a broad spectrum of commercial and civil litigation matters, we place particular emphasis on handling cases in the following categories:

    Business tort and breach of contract litigation: Disputes or claims involving: fraud and misrepresentation; unfair competition; trade secret theft or misappropriation; business conspiracy; interference with contract or business expectancy; breach of fiduciary duty; fraudulent transfer, alter-ego and entity successor liability; corporate, limited liability company and partnership disputes; injunctions; pre-judgment attachments; and enforcement of judgments.

    Fiduciary Litigation: Contested estates; probate litigation; accountings; aid and direction suits on behalf of executors and administrators.

    Local Counsel: We routinely act as local counsel for national and regional law firms with matters in the local courts.

    Construction Litigation: Contract disputes involving owners, general contractors, subcontractors, and engineers; mechanics lien preparation and enforcement; indemnity and subrogation claims.
