Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Our Founding Competency
Litigation & Alternative Dispute Resolution
Our litigation team has the broad capability to handle a wide array of cases. We represent our clients in shareholder and partnership disputes, employment matters, commercial contract claims, defamation, and insurance related issues, to name a few. And we still excel in real estate litigation, with a practice that encompasses contract and license disputes, easement rights, water rights, adverse possession, title defects, construction defects, and contamination cases. Municipalities have employed us as special counsel in litigation commenced by third parties seeking to vacate land use approvals and in contract matters. And in the trusts and estates arena, our litigators handle guardianship and will contests, among other fiduciary issues, with the intelligence and sensitivity that such matters require.
We have extensive experience litigating under the New York State Environmental Quality Review Act, as well as the Clean Water Act, the Federal Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act, the Women’s Health & Cancer Rights Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Our attorneys regularly appear before all courts of general jurisdiction in New York State, Surrogate’s Court, federal district courts, bankruptcy courts, appellate courts, and a wide array of agencies and commissions. We also routinely represent clients in arbitration and mediation proceedings, including cases before the American Arbitration Association, FINRA and other alternative dispute resolution tribunals.
