Commercial Litigation

Committed to solutions that make business sense

Our Commercial Litigation attorneys have extensive trial, mediation and arbitration experience in complex commercial litigation, real estate litigation, partnership and shareholder disputes, insurance disputes, and securities fraud. We work closely with our clients to identify and understand potential areas of exposure, devise strategies to manage risk, and ultimately, resolve disputes both efficiently and effectively.

  • Commercial Litigation. Our attorneys have significant experience in a broad range of business issues, including contract disputes, claims for fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation, matters arising under the uniform commercial code, class actions, fraudulent transfer claims, breach of fiduciary duty claims, tortious interference claims and other business torts.
  • Real Estate Litigation. We have represented developers and owners in disputes involving the scope of development, the quality of the development, and a myriad of other real estate related disputes.
  • Corporate and Partnership Governance Disputes. In the field of shareholder and partnership disputes, we have significant experience representing shareholders, partners, boards of directors, corporations, and LLCs in litigation involving allegations of breach of fiduciary duties, usurpation of corporate opportunities, fraud, and breaches of trust. Our clients represent a range of industries, including real estate ventures, product producers, medical device companies, re-sellers, inventors, and many others.
  • Insurance.  Our attorneys represent individuals and businesses in a variety of insurance matters, including coverage of third party claims under insurance for commercial general liability, errors and omissions liability, professional liability, and directors and officers liability. In that regard, our attorneys counsel clients regarding the insurer’s duty to defend, the right to control the defense, reservations of rights, unfair claims handling, bad faith claims, and coverage for unfair competition, patent, copyright, trademark, deceptive trade practices, false advertising and related claims.

As counsel to our clients, our goal is to avoid litigation whenever possible. However, when litigation is unavoidable, Fabyanske, Westra, Hart & Thomson attorneys provide results-oriented, resourceful and cost-effective representation.
