Commercial Litigation & Dispute Resolution
The firm represents both individual and corporate clients in a wide range of complex commercial litigation and dispute resolution matters. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing U.S., foreign and transnational clients before federal and state trial and appellate courts, in internal investigations and proceedings involving government agencies, and in a variety of alternate dispute resolution (ADR) forums. Our civil litigation experience includes complex contractual and corporate disputes, securities litigation, shareholder derivative litigation, class actions, employment and separation matters, insurance coverage litigation, and insolvency proceedings, and encompasses a large and diverse spectrum of industries, including banking, finance, pharmaceuticals, insurance, real estate, entertainment, construction, media and others.
Our ADR work, which encompasses evaluation, mediation, arbitration and settlement negotiation, benefits from our attorneys’ substantial experience serving as arbitrators and mediators. Likewise, our representation of clients in connection with government proceedings and investigations is informed by the significant governmental and regulatory experience of our attorneys, including several who served as litigation counsel for state agencies as well as the former Executive Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, John J. Kenney. The firm’s attorneys also represent individuals and organizations of limited resources in a variety of pro bono matters.
We are creative and resourceful in our approaches to finding solutions to our clients’ problems. We can quickly assemble a focused team to address and resolve any type of potential or actual dispute in an efficient and effective manner. While our attorneys have substantial federal and state trial experience and we approach every case with the expectation that it could go to trial, we realize that it is not in every client’s best interest to take a case to that point. We are expert at evaluating and advising our clients as to settlement opportunities and negotiating settlements when appropriate. At the end of the day, our focus is on effectively resolving our clients’ disputes in the most efficient and beneficial manner possible—whether that be through negotiation, ADR, trial or settlement.
