Litigation & Early Dispute Resolution

Litigation is a way of resolving problems. It can be a tool for achieving a successful settlement, sometimes in combination with early dispute resolution. Or it can be the best means for redressing a wrong or establishing a principle.

Attorneys in our Litigation practice group have extensive trial and appellate experience in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies in New York and throughout the United States. We also regularly represent clients in proceedings before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board, in domain name arbitration actions before the World Intellectual Property Organization and the National Arbitration Forum, and in advertising disputes before the National Advertising Division by The Better Business Bureau. 

Among the cases we litigate are matters involving general commercial law, false advertising, the Internet and e-commerce, trademarks, patents, copyrights, unfair competition, entertainment, employment, professional ethics, product liability, real estate, regulatory and taxation disputes, white-collar criminal defense, military justice, matrimonial, family and estate matters.

Our approach is to be as persuasive and efficient as possible. We focus on decisive issues and avoid overstaffing cases. When appropriate, we have the resources of paraprofessionals and sophisticated legal support technology to assist us.

Of course, we always look for early dispute resolution opportunities.  Members of the firm have represented our clients in mediation and arbitration proceedings.  They also act as mediators and arbitrators in cases for the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York (E.D.N.Y.), the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR), the International Trademark Association (INTA), and the American Arbitration Association (AAA).
