Practice/Industry Group Overview
We are proud of our reputation for unparalleled sophistication in litigating at every level of state and federal court, and before administrative and arbitral tribunals. Indeed, lawyers nationwide often ask our litigators to handle complex trials and appeals, or to lend knowledge and insight into local practice and procedure.
We bring to our clients a deep understanding of the inner workings of the courts. Our litigation attorneys are derived from a base of judicial leaders, including a former New York Court of Appeals judge, a justice of the Appellate Division and a State Supreme Court justice, as well as from skilled practitioners including federal and state prosecutors, judicial law secretaries and seasoned commercial litigators.
Our victories speak for themselves. Our many successes include record-breaking and multi-million dollar jury verdicts. Our appellate victories have made new law in a variety of fields; dozens of our cases have become leading reported decisions.
In cases where traditional litigation is not the best approach, we recognize the emerging role of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) as a means for resolving matters cost-effectively, efficiently and in the best interest of our clients. In fact, many of our attorneys often function as skilled ADR negotiators, arbitrators and mediators.
From large international corporations and local businesses, to municipalities and government groups, to unions and professionals, we offer clients in-depth experience and knowledge of all aspects of litigation and dispute resolution.
