Our attorneys have decades of experience handling sophisticated business disputes in federal and state courts around the country, from pre-suit investigation through trial, appeal, and post-judgment enforcement.
The firm has represented individuals and corporations across a range of industries. We have handled disputes involving breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, corporate governance and shareholder issues, business torts and business defamation, unfair competition, deceptive and unfair business practices, real estate investments, financial fraud and Ponzi schemes, insurance fraud, professional liability claims against accountants and lawyers, civil claims under the Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organizations (“RICO”) Act, insurance coverage, and the dissolution of business relationships.
Here are some of the outcomes our lawyers have achieved for our clients:
- Obtained ruling by the Commercial Division in favor of our client, dismissing all claims against them, in an action arising from a $58 million fraudulent scheme allegedly perpetrated by a third party.
- Obtained ruling by the First Department in favor of our client, a construction company, holding that the defendant and its counsel entered an illegal witness fee arrangement with a critical third party witness.
- Obtained ruling by the First Department in favor of our client, a real estate developer, rejecting the seller’s excuses for failing to close on a multi million dollar real estate deal and requiring the seller to release the escrowed contract deposit to the buyer.
- Obtained ruling by the Commercial Division in favor of our client, holding that defendants’ law firm (among the ten largest in the United States) was disqualified due to a conflict of interest. The ruling was based on its representation of both the corporation on whose behalf our client asserted a derivative claim and the majority shareholder of the corporation.
