Commercial Business Litigation

Our attorneys represent a broad spectrum of public and privately-held businesses and high net worth individuals in commercial litigation in state and federal courts across the nation. The litigation practice has broad and deep experience handling litigation matters in both federal and state court at the trial and appellate levels as well as in arbitrations and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings, both domestic and international. Our litigators are equally comfortable representing plaintiffs or defendants and are accustomed to handling matters of exceptional complexity, including complex contract and other commercial disputes in virtually every industry and discipline, partnership disputes, “business divorces” and matters falling under the Uniform Commercial Code. Our firm is distinguished in two significant respects: its outstanding client service and the results it consistently achieves for its clients. The key to litigation success is to have the creativity to knock out claims at the earliest possible stage, to have the flexibility to reach advantageous settlements, where appropriate, and to have the experience and talent to take cases to trial, if necessary, and win. We are trial ready with an enviable track record at both the trial and appellate level. In addition to adjudicating matters in state and federal courts, we regularly represent clients in administrative proceedings and before domestic and international arbitration panels. A number of Gusrae Kaplan’s practitioners are trained and certified as mediators and arbitrators, which informs our approach to negotiation and settlement.
