Commercial Litigation & Business Services

We routinely advise clients that full-blown litigation is typically the least efficient approach available for the resolution of business, corporate or commercial disputes. Nevertheless, there are times when sound pretrial litigation strategies can help develop and strengthen the bargaining leverage that can drive a positive settlement. There are also times when presenting your full case at trial is the best way to protect your interests against an intransigent or misguided opponent.

Our civil trial lawyers handle a wide range of contract, corporate, business tort and insurance coverage claims and defenses, sometimes all in the same case:

  1. Breach of contract
  2. Fraud, misrepresentation or negligent nondisclosure
  3. Trade secrets, noncompetition or non-solicitation claims
  4. Real estate and construction disputes
  5. Shareholder derivative actions
  6. Corporate or partnership disputes within closely held companies
  7. Lender liability claims
  8. Fair debt collection or equal credit opportunity claims
  9. Unfair competition, commercial disparagement or advertising torts
  10. Claims against broker-dealers or registered representatives
  11. Civil actions related to conversion, check fraud, employee theft or embezzlement
  12. Products liability or warranty claims
