Overview

One of the region’s largest, most experienced groups of commercial trial lawyers, our Litigation Department has achieved success in hundreds of trials in state and federal courts.  Throughout New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Texas and Florida we are recognized as a “bet the company” litigation team.  We frequently arbitrate and mediate as alternatives to litigation.  We also counsel our clients on how to avoid litigation.  First and foremost, our clients see us as problem solvers.

We represent a diverse group of companies and individuals, from all industries, in business disputes in state and federal court litigation, through trial and appeal, as well as in mediation and arbitration.  Specifically, we represent and guide clients in shareholder, partner and member disputes; contract disputes, claims of unfair competition and tortious interference, claims of state and federal statutory violations, such as antitrust, trademark, copyright and patent infringement, racketeering (RICO), and claims of fraud, whether securities, lender, consumer or business fraud, as well as numerous other types of inter- and intra-company disputes.  We have vast experience in identifying, seeking and obtaining the necessary and proper legal and equitable relief and remedies required by our clients, including, but not limited to, temporary restraining orders, preliminary and permanent injunctions, declaratory judgments, specific performance and monetary damages.
