We maintain a robust litigation practice that is focused on representing parties in commercial and business disputes. Our attorneys are licensed to practice in state and federal court, and routinely represent clients in arbitration, mediation and administrative proceedings.

In business and commercial disputes, we take a common-sense approach that focuses on finding creative and cost-effective solutions. While some disputes are destined for the courtroom, we are often able to craft pre-litigation strategies that fully protect our clients’ interests. Always focused on efficient resolutions, and armed with a profound understanding of the law, we are experts at leveraging the strengths in our clients’ positions. When disputes cannot be resolved, our trial attorneys are able to effectively and persuasively advocate our client’s case.

Creative Solutions to Complex Business and Real Estate Disputes

Our litigation attorneys have extensive experience in business and real estate litigation. Consistent with our general approach to client matters, they work collaboratively to draw upon the experience and perspective of our transactional team. Business and real estate disputes often arise out of contractual relationships, and by putting ourselves in the contract drafter’s position, we can better discern the intent behind disputed contract provisions and thus drive solutions that protect our clients’ immediate and long-term interests.

Our litigation practice includes representing clients in matters involving:

  • Construction contract disputes
  • Construction defect litigation
  • Disputes involving managing and operating agreements
  • Condominium litigation
  • Government procurement protests
  • Eminent domain and regulatory matters
  • Petitions for partition of title to real estate
  • Commercial contract disputes
  • Commercial leasing disputes
  • Real estate acquisition and development disputes
  • Disputes involving debt financing and shareholder litigation
  • Disputes arising out of business acquisitions

Alternative Dispute Resolution and Administrative Matters

In addition to representing clients in state and federal litigation, we also handle matters involving alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Many business and commercial contracts include provisions for mandatory arbitration or mediation, and pursuing these methods as an alternative to litigation can often be in the best interests of all parties involved. ADR often presents a unique set of challenges, including issues related to finality, application or choice of law, and appellate review. Our attorneys are experienced ADR practitioners who can avoid these pitfalls, and secure favorable results for our clients.
