Commercial Litigation

Commercial Litigation

The firm has developed an innovative and self-fulfilling commercial litigation practice, pursuing RICO claims, as well as claims of breach of contract, fraud and fraudulent conveyance, antitrust, unfair trade practices, breach of fiduciary duty, partnership disputes, wrongful foreclosure, investor fraud, defamation, breach of good faith and various other claims on behalf of its clients.

As an example, after trying to successful verdict a RICO claim based on a scheme to fraudulently induce a client of the firm to participate in sham tax shelter strategies, the firm has been retained by clients throughout the nation to analyze and pursue claims in federal courts and in arbitration against some of the nation’s largest banking institutions, law firms, investment houses and real estate investment trusts. Additionally, the firm has been involved in litigation over the faulty handling of investments, including the prosecution of claims of investor fraud related to the collapse of the Stanford Financial Group, and has been consulted with regard to some deleterious vestiges of the 2008 financial crisis and the unfair results of market manipulation.
