Commercial Disputes

Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution

The trial lawyers of Kaiser Saurborn & Mair advise business and professional clients in New York and New Jersey about the best ways to resolve commercial disputes ranging from breach of contract claims to complex litigation involving sales, leases, commitments to lend or the enforcement of rights under licensing or distribution agreements.

Resourceful Counsel for Business, Professional and Entrepreneurial Clients

Although the starting point for the resolution of commercial disputes is normally a close review of the contract that creates and defines the relationship between the parties, the Firm's counsel in business litigation goes well beyond the terms of your agreement.

Our attorneys work closely with our clients to devise a dispute resolution strategy that seeks in large part to sidestep the risks, time commitments and expenses of civil litigation. By developing a strong sense of your immediate and long-term objectives as they fit into the broader context of your business operations, we can often find a way to achieve your litigation goals through negotiation, mediation or arbitration.

The Firm's reputation as formidable and effective trial attorneys helps to strengthen your bargaining position. Any evidence that will help to establish your claims or defenses in court will also serve to improve your ability to achieve your goals through negotiation.

Our experience with civil litigation can benefit clients in situations ranging from construction defect claims to international marketing disputes over the risk of loss due to market or currency shifts. We have successfully represented clients engaged in the following industries:

  • Pharmaceuticals.
  • Biotechnology.
  • Real estate.
  • Software development, distribution and licensing.
  • Professions such as law, medicine or accounting.
  • Importers and exporters.

We also help clients resolve commercial disputes that feature issues as to the ownership of a business or partnership share, or noncontractual claims such as fraud or unfair competition.

The Firm advises and represents commercial litigation clients in New York and New Jersey.
