Complex Commercial Litigation

We have significant experience and a record of success in resolving a broad variety of complex commercial and business disputes.

Our attorneys have won significant victories in cases involving business torts, unfair or deceptive trade practices and antitrust, securities fraud, professional liability, breaches of fiduciary duty, sophisticated contracts, and shareholder and partnership disputes. We have represented financial institutions and participants in the investment funds industry, public and private corporations, businesses and executives in all types of litigation, including high-stakes class actions and derivative litigation. We represent attorneys in partnership and other disputes, professional malpractice, and disciplinary matters, and we counsel attorneys in a wide variety of matters.

We practice in federal and state trial and appellate courts and before federal and state regulatory agencies like the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Federal Trade Commission and the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau. We also handle business arbitrations on a regular basis, including proceedings before the American Arbitration Association, JAMS and FINRA.
