Business & Commercial Litigation

It is an unfortunate fact of life in the business world today that disputes arise from time to time. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide productive and cost-effective representation to clients faced with these situations. We counsel and represent clients ranging from individuals to Fortune 500 companies in all types of business and commercial disputes.

Our experience includes consumer claims; financial and banking disputes; shareholder and partner disputes in corporations, partnerships, limited partnerships and joint ventures; real estate and construction disputes, including mechanics liens; trade secrets and proprietary matters; and all types of contract claims.

As is true in all litigation matters, our philosophy in business and commercial litigation is to identify our client’s goals and to work in partnership with the client to help accomplish those goals in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. In each case, we will provide timely case evaluations and address the merits of prosecution or defense and recommend appropriate courses of action, such as determining the extent of discovery to be undertaken, whether or not to take the case to trial, and the timing and tactics for settlement, mediation or other alternative dispute resolution.

Our commercial and business litigation group, headed by Steven P. Rouse, member, works closely together to best serve our clients. We stand ready to assist you should the need arise.
