Commercial Litigation

Experienced Trial and Appellate Business Litigators

Commercial disputes strike at the heart of your business and threaten to destroy all that you have built.  Vendors who don’t pay your bills affect your cash flow. Partner disputes focus energy on personal goals rather than growing the business. Defamatory comments on social media sites like Facebook and Yelp scar the reputation you have worked so hard to build.  Long-time employees who leave your company attempt to seize control of clients you have spent years to develop.  Thousands of dollars in marketing is swept away by trademark and copyright infringement.

We have been in the thick of all these disputes, both at trial and at the appellate level. Commercial litigation requires an aggressive yet thoughtful and intelligent plan of action to accomplish the goal of protecting your business interests.  We believe that our role for our clients is to advise them on all aspects of a case, pro and con, in what often proves to be an incredibly emotional period.  We also understand the procedural differences required by commercial cases and act swiftly in securing injunctive relief when timing is critical to secure your rights.

  • Shareholders’ derivate suits
