Wooden chess pieces

Running a business comes with inherent legal risks, including the potential for lawsuits, which, if not handled properly, can become a costly and time-consuming distraction.

We work with clients in a wide range of industries who are involved in disputes arising from, among other things:

  • Real Estate Litigation
  • Construction Litigation
  • Business Disputes
  • Business Entity Dissolution
  • Non-Regulatory/Compliance Bank Litigation

While commercial litigation often arises from a contract or agreement, business relationships can be harmed by wrongdoing when a party engages in unethical or deceptive practices, misappropriates trade secrets, or unfairly interferes with another’s business or prospective alliances. These actions cannot only damage a firm’s reputation in the marketplace, but also jeopardize its viability. It is essential to engage the services of an experienced and dedicated attorney to respond to these legal perils.

Understanding the Spectrum of Commercial Disputes

The realm of commercial litigation encompasses a wide range of disputes, encompassing contractual breaches, tortious conduct, and regulatory violations. These disputes can arise from various sources, including:

  • Contractual Disagreements: Breaches of contracts, whether explicit or implied, often lead to commercial litigation. These disputes may involve issues such as faulty performance, non-payment, or disputes over intellectual property rights.
  • Tort Claims: Wrongful acts committed in the course of business, such as fraud, misrepresentation, or negligence, can trigger tort claims. These claims seek to compensate victims for damages caused by the defendant’s actions.
  • Regulatory Enforcement: Violations of state or federal regulations, such as environmental laws or antitrust statutes, can result in enforcement actions by regulatory agencies or private lawsuits. These cases often involve complex legal and factual issues.

Venues for Resolving Commercial Disputes in New York

New York’s legal system provides a diverse array of venues for resolving commercial disputes. These include:

  • State Supreme Courts: The New York State Supreme Court, the trial court of general jurisdiction, handles a vast majority of commercial litigation cases.
  • Federal Courts: Federal courts have jurisdiction over certain types of commercial disputes, such as antitrust cases or disputes involving parties from different states.
  • ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution): Parties can opt for ADR mechanisms, such as mediation or arbitration, to resolve disputes outside of the court system. ADR offers benefits such as confidentiality, flexibility, and cost-effectiveness.
