The firm has a long history and high level of experience in all types of commercial litigation. Such matters involve contract disputes, commercial transations, claims of fraud and corporate malfeasance. Complex litigation involving multiple parties and claims, sometimes resulting in multi-district litigation has been a firm forte for many years. Members of the firm have served as counsel to national and international organizations and companies facing litigation in Florida and as members of steering committees in complex litigation issues. These multi-jurisdictional cases allow the firm to exercise its litigation management skills for the client's benefit.
