We have prosecuted and defended a broad variety of cases arising out of disputes concerning contracts, shareholder agreements, intellectual property (including copyright and trade secrets), partnerships and close corporations, and product liability matters, for clients ranging from some of the largest global corporations to sole proprietorships. For example, we have successfully prosecuted multi-million dollar actions to recover sums owed pursuant to notes, guarantees and other debt instruments. We also have represented manufacturers and distributors in product liability matters. Our cases have taken us before federal and state courts and arbitration panels throughout the United States, and in the United Kingdom and Brazil.
We regularly have defended law firms in New York, New Jersey and other states when they have been sued by clients for legal malpractice.
We have extensive experience in all aspects of class-action and shareholder derivative cases brought under the federal securities laws, state investor protection laws, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and the corporate laws of the various states. We have represented issuers, investment banks, accounting firms and individual corporate directors and officers in such cases.
We have handled numerous matters in arbitration and before state and federal courts, on behalf of both insurers and corporate insureds involving scope and denial of coverage, failure to defend and failure to disclose.
