In addition to the defense and prosecution of commercial claims, a significant part of our litigation practice is the representation of individuals and broker-dealers in defense of SEC and self-regulatory organization inquiries, investigations and disciplinary proceedings.

Our litigation lawyers have the breadth of experience and substantive knowledge to navigate such complex matters.

Our litigation practice includes talented trust & estate litigators with significant experience in trust and estate disputes. These attorneys are skilled in handling Will and Trust Contests, Contested Accounting Proceedings, Spousal Rights Proceedings, Reformation and Construction Proceedings, Property Turnover Proceedings, and a variety of other contested litigation matters stemming from the distribution of inherited wealth.

Because of the Firm’s overhead structure, we are able to handle both large and smaller matters in a cost-effective manner. Whether the case calls for an aggressive approach or an innovative solution to a unique litigation problem, our litigators have the training and sophistication to deliver a favorable outcome.
