Please review our major areas of practice and contact us to discuss how we can assist you further.
Commercial Litigation and Appeals
Our litigation practice includes all aspects of federal and state litigation, trials and appeals. We handle commercial cases, regulatory proceedings, mediations, arbitrations and appeals. Our cases range from contract disputes to breach of fiduciary duty, tortious interference, defamation and other business tort claims. We represent clients located in New York, throughout the country, and internationally.
We specialize in corporate, partnership and membership disputes, including withdrawal disputes, preferential rights litigation and demand enforcement proceedings. We also counsel principals, boards of directors and senior management with respect to a variety of corporate objectives. We currently represent board members, investors and corporations, as well as entities whose partners have sought bankruptcy protection, in a variety of corporate governance disputes.
Our debtor/creditor practice provides our clients with creative solutions under the Bankruptcy Code as well as state Debtor and Creditor Law. We represent creditors as well as parties whose rights are affected by a business partner, customer or commercial tenant filing for bankruptcy protection. We are experts in judgment enforcement procedures and have a consistent record of enforcing judgments against successor entities and principals. If the debtor transfers assets or closes its company, only to form a new, but substantially similar company, we seek to pierce the corporate veil and hold the successor entity liable.
Private Equity and Other Transactional Matters
We counsel issuers and investors with respect to private placements, including negotiation of terms, preparation of transactional documents and compliance with state and federal regulations. We negotiate purchase and sale agreements, debt instruments, licenses, services agreements, contractor and employment agreements.
We handle all aspects of the purchase, sale, financing or leasing of commercial and residential real estate.
We counsel artists, chefs, authors and media companies in a broad array of contractual and intellectual property matters.
