Complex Business Litigation
We represent businesses, executives, entrepreneurs and other individuals in a range of complex business disputes. Our attorneys have represented clients across a variety of industries, including finance, technology, e-commerce, communications, recruiting and career services, healthcare, real estate, art, fine jewelry, entertainment, publishing and import/export.
We have handled sophisticated breach of contract cases and related fiduciary duty and business tort claims, intellectual property and trade secrets matters, fraud and misrepresentation cases, partnership disputes and corporate divorces, as well matters involving officer and director liability, shareholder rights, anonymous online defamation and many other legal theories and claims.
We represent both employers and employees in disputes involving executive compensation; restrictive covenants, such as non-compete and non-solicitation restrictions; misappropriation of trade secrets and employer goodwill; and discrimination matters arising under federal, state and local laws. We also negotiate employment and separation agreements and advise businesses on best practices to avoid employment-related litigation.
Financial Services Litigation
We represent banks, private equity firms, hedge funds and other businesses and individuals in a variety of financial disputes in state and federal courts, as well as in arbitration and before governmental agencies.
Our trial-driven approach is the key to our success. We know the best outcomes - in court and in settlement - are achieved by lawyers who, from day one, prepare for trial. As a result of our trial-driven approach, we focus on what counts – the essential facts, documents and witnesses that will determine the outcome. Thus, not only do we avoid needless pretrial disputes and discovery costs but, by being prepared to see each case through to trial, we are always positioned to negotiate the best settlement, including before litigation even begins.
Corporate and Transactional
We offer a broad array of corporate and transactional services to our clients, including with respect to: complex company organization and structure, mergers and acquisitions, equity and debt financing/capital raises, on-boarding of management teams and incentive compensation strategies, capitalization table management, liquidity events, corporate transactions and day-to-day operational agreements (licensing, independent contractor, employment, master service, and all forms of customer/vendor agreements).
