Commercial Litigation: Handling the Most Complex Cases of Property Loss, Fiduciary and Legal Malpractice Claims, and Business Disputes
The economic recessions following the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks and the 2008 financial crisis have foced us to live with an increased threat to our personal and financial well-being. The extended bull market since 2009 has renewed the risk of “bubbles” in the real estate and financial markets. Given the uncertainties, all of us are more exposed to unfair, deceptive, careless, or intentional acts of those with whom we do business or enter into relationships of trust.
Since our founding in 2002, our practice has focused on recovering or avoiding financial losses for clients due to claims of property damage, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, professional negligence, fraud, or other misconduct. Two of our partners are recognized in Best Lawyers in America in commercial litigation and have been for many years.
[+] Property Loss
During the last two decades the incidence of events leading to property loss has increased dramatically. Whether due to terrorism, climate change, or environmental accidents, property loss leads to financial hardship, interruption of income, and even insurance disputes. We have specialized in resolving such disputes from fuel storage tank contamination claims in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to the destruction of the World Trade Center Towers on 9/11/01 in the billions of dollars.
[+] Fiduciary and Legal Malpractice
Trustees and lawyers, like other professionals, are not expected to be perfect. We have defended them for years against claims. And, we do not sue trustees and lawyers for differences in judgment. But, when they fail to perform their fiduciary responsibilities or depart from ethical standards, and their clients suffer, we have the skills and experience to obtain fair and just compensation. We practice the professional and ethical standards, we know recognized experts, and we are familiar with professional liability insurer expectations.
[+] Business Disputes (Contract, Intellectual Property, Shareholder, Fraud Claims)
We have represented businesses in disputes for over 30 years. We are experienced in making or defending against claims of breach of contract, antitrust, fraud and misrepresentation, intellectual property, and unfair trade practices in trials and arbitrations around the country.
Despite the notoriety of large publicly held corporations most businesses are small, privately owned corporations or LLC’s. When the majority shareholders or the management of these businesses take actions that prejudice minority shareholders, the losses can be large. The common law and statutory remedies can be time consuming and emotionally draining. We have the experience to maximize and facilitate recovery.
