Commercial Litigation Lawyers

Business disputes are a fact of life. When your commercial interests are threatened, our team can offer numerous strategies to defend your company's well-being and will tenaciously defend your position in court if necessary. Sometimes, such as when seeking injunctions to stop immediate harm to your business, or when dealing with an intractable opponent, the courts are the best or only solution.

However, not every situation requires a lawsuit. When it is in our clients' best interests, we seek forms of business dispute resolution that are more efficient, economical and private than commercial litigation. Although we have a record of success at all levels of courts and administrative tribunals, we prefer to resolve your matters more productively if possible.

Our clients are large and small, established corporations as well as individuals and startups. For many of our clients, litigation is influenced by the creative and intellectual property (IP) nature of the business.

Business Disputes

In addition to patent litigation, licensing and other forms of intellectual property litigation, our lawyers also deal with other disagreements involving commercial law such as:

  • Employment disputes, including disputes over the ownership of IP created by employees
  • Breach of contract
  • Competition and antitrust
  • Franchise disputes
  • Libel and slander
  • Product liability
  • Shareholder and partnership disputes
  • Securities litigation
  • Cross-border issues
  • Unfair competition litigation
  • Privacy, confidential information and data protection
  • Technology and e-commerce disputes
  • Entertainment disputes
  • Professional liability
  • Civil fraud
  • Estates litigation
  • Business torts

How you deal with legal challenges will profoundly affect your business growth. We are dedicated to finding the most efficient resolutions for disputes that can derail your business venture. We are agile enough to tailor your legal team to your company's unique needs, and find efficient solutions to your business differences.
