Practice/Industry Group Overview

Cohen Seglias' Commercial Litigation Group handles litigation matters in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region on a variety of business, real estate and commercial issues for large and small businesses, as well as individuals. It is safe to say that whatever litigation matters face our clients, the Commercial Litigation Group is well prepared and experienced to represent their interests from preliminary negotiations, to trials, to appeals.

Our Commercial Litigation Group is well-versed in corporate and partnership disputes. Whether your company is faced with threats from third parties or is undergoing internal struggles, we are well positioned to advise and counsel you through the resolution of problems, including the litigation of matters that cannot be resolved.

The lawyers in our Group routinely handle contract disputes for our clients. Many times, litigation is focused not so much on what a contract might say but on the effect different contract interpretations can have on your on-going business. When resolutions to disputes are not possible, we stand by our clients and seek to obtain for them, in the most appropriate venue, the outcome that will be most beneficial to their businesses.
