Commercial Litigation

We handle a wide variety of commercial disputes in both state and federal court at every stage of litigation.  From pre-suit counseling through discovery, trial and appeal, we are committed to providing both appropriately aggressive representation and creative dispute resolution strategies.

Corporate Counseling

Establishing a firm foundation is critical to the success of any business.  We help our clients create certainty and avoid future disputes by assisting in the selection of the appropriate legal entity and properly defining the relationships between shareholders, directors and business partners right from the start.  As ongoing business advisors, we are ready to assist clients with contract formulation and review, employment matters, intellectual property protection and general business planning.   From formation through dissolution, our clients receive diligent, practical advice to help make their vision a reality.

Creditor’s Rights

We are sensitive to the challenges facing both large and small businesses in today’s economy and are committed to enforcing our clients’ rights in the most efficient and cost effective manner.  We have extensive experience representing secured creditors in all aspects of asset recovery, including real estate foreclosure and the recovery and sale of personal property.  We also assist judgment creditors in enforcing both domestic and foreign judgments.

Employment Disputes

We advise businesses on matters related to the relationships with their employees. We counsel our clients in the preparation of employment agreements, severance agreements, and other documents governing those relationships.  We also litigate disputes arising out of the employer-employee relationship, including the enforcement of restrictive covenants and claims brought under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Insurance Litigation

We represent homeowners and business owners in disputes with their insurance companies. We handle all aspects of our client’s property damage and business interruption claims, from initial filings through, when necessary, trial and appeal. Our experience and in-depth understanding of coverage issues and policy interpretation allows us to achieve favorable outcomes for our clients in the least amount of time possible.

Real Estate

In addition to representing buyers, sellers, landlords, and tenants in a variety of real estate transactions, we have extensive experience in the litigation of real estate disputes. We have brought and defended foreclosure actions, actions for specific performance, evictions, and brokerage disputes. As a result of this experience, our clients receive sophisticated, practical and strategic advice and representation.
