Litigation & Alternate Dispute Resolution

Members of this practice area are:

 

Our litigators work hard to resolve our clients' problems through pre-lawsuit negotiations, alternative dispute resolution and/or litigation in the federal and state courts.  Our objective is to effectively and persuasively advocate for our clients in order to resolve their problems in the most effective and cost-efficient manner.  We pride ourselves in our relentless effort to achieve our clients’ goals. We communicate frequently with our clients to keep them apprised of our progress and of the fees and costs associated with our work.

We handle all aspects of the lawsuit from pre-trial through trial and appeal.   We regularly appear in state and federal courts at both the trial and appellate levels. Our practice and experience spans the spectrum from smaller contract cases to complex multi-party actions. Our team handles a wide variety of disputes including commercial, real property, construction, corporate, intellectual property (including trademark and copyright infringement, unfair competition and false advertising), partnership, employment, foreclosure and estate disputes. 

We specialize in cooperative and condominium litigation.  We have extensive experience in the laws governing cooperatives, condominiums, Mitchell-Lama’s, and homeowner associations and effectively resolve disputes for our cooperative and condominium clients.  The firm regularly handles building defect claims, tenant/shareholder and owner disputes, tenant and owner non-payments and holdovers, Article 78’s, proxy fights, election disputes, objectionable conduct claims, breach of fiduciary duty claims and numerous other landlord-tenant disputes.

We are approved counsel for several prominent insurance carriers which allows us to represent their insureds as defense counsel against an array of different claims, and also to represent our cooperative and condominium clients who are sued and covered by their insurance policies.
