Business Litigation

Business litigation is a complex area of law. It includes a variety of contractual and tort claims such as breach of contract, fraud, tortious interference with contract, and breach of fiduciary duty. Our attorneys have litigated numerous business and commercial disputes in state and federal courts, and have represented both small companies and large multinational corporations. Our cases have created new law, and have resulted in published opinions. We provide our clients with skillful, strategic and aggressive representation in the resolution of commercial and business disputes.

Kaplan Weiss LLP’s business litigation attorneys are guided by two fundamental concepts. First, we are aggressive, well-prepared advocates. We are trial attorneys in the truest sense, and stand ready to take any case to jury trial and verdict. Indeed, we have taken many jury and non-jury trials to verdict with impressive results. Our courtroom experience and expertise empower us to develop highly effective strategies for success through pre-litigation or trial. Our reputation as formidable attorneys gives us the competitive edge in dealing with opposing counsel. At our core, we are trial lawyers who focus on producing the best outcome in the most efficient manner for our clients.

This focus forms the foundation for our second fundamental concept. While being successful trial lawyers is important, we understand litigation is rarely an effective business strategy. With accurate case evaluation, efficient staffing, and targeted discovery and motion practice, we conduct our litigation matters in ways that make most business sense for our clients.

We often advise our clients that a lawsuit is not always the most efficient or cost effective way to resolve a dispute. If appropriate, we can help your business come to a satisfactory resolution without the cost, time and energy required to take a case to trial.

Our areas of expertise in business litigation include the following:
  • Breach of contract
  • Unfair business practices
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Fraud
  • Insurance litigation
  • Intentional interference with contract
  • Negligent misrepresentation
  • Tortious interference with business relationships and contracts
  • False advertising
  • Uniform Commercial Code (“UCC”) disputes
  • Product liability
  • Toxic tort
