We handle general civil litigation at both the trial and appellate level.
In our general civil litigation practice we handle a broad range of matters, including breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, legal malpractice, employment misclassification and discrimination, probate challenges, and matrimonial litigation, among other areas.
We have particular expertise in disputes between members, founders, partners or shareholders of closely held corporations and limited liability companies, and litigation involving complex financial and business issues. Our philosophy is that effective and forceful advocacy enables smaller clients to level the playing field with much larger and often better financed adversaries. Often, in situations of apparent power imbalance, we have been able to resolve disputes on favorable terms without litigation by vigorously advancing our clients’ positions. If litigation is unavoidable, we defend our clients’ interests aggressively, and have been able to turn the tables on our adversaries, transforming a losing defensive position into a winning offensive one.
Whatever your particular issue, we seek to understand the facts of your case as completely as possible, to research applicable law rigorously and creatively, to provide you with clear, dispassionate advice as to the merits of your case and then either litigate aggressively or settle out of court on favorable terms. This methodology cuts across disciplines and can yield results in most substantive areas of practice.
In our appellate practice, we take appeals from any civil or criminal case. We master the trial record, thoroughly digesting all lower court proceedings and meticulously exploring all areas of reversible error, from evidentiary rulings, to misinterpretation or misapplication of applicable law or contract provisions, to the equitable and policy considerations that often tip the scales in one of the parties’ favor.
If you would like to discuss your issues in confidence, we encourage you to contact us at 212-813-8389 or firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can assess the merits of your case and provide you with a preliminary assessment of your options.
