A Century of Experience in Complex Commercial Litigation

Our commercial litigation practice is devoted to defending clients in complex and high-stakes disputes. We primarily represent large corporate and institutional clients in this area, including banks, insurance companies, public entities, and universities. As a result of our reputation as leading commercial litigators, we have had the opportunity to represent several prominent clients

In commercial litigation, we strongly believe in the value of working collaboratively with our clients to help them achieve the best possible results. Our firm’s lineage dates back to the 1920’s, and some of our institutional clients have been with us since the beginning. We deeply value these relationships, and we believe that our collaborative, client-first approach has played a key role in our success as a firm and in the successes we have achieved for our clients.

Our Commercial Litigation Practice

Within our commercial litigation practice, we represent clients in all types of disputes involving vendors, lenders, shareholders, competitors, and other entities. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Business tort claims
  • Contract disputes
  • Copyright and patent claims
  • Debt collection
  • Shareholder derivative litigation

We handle these and other types of commercial disputes in courtrooms throughout Florida and across the country. Many of our larger institutional clients require our assistance in jurisdictions outside of Florida, and we are well-equipped to handle these matters. We represent our clients in state and federal court, and in addition to handling our clients’ commercial litigation at the trial level, we also provide appellate representation when necessary.

An Unrelenting Commitment to Our Clients’ Success

Over the past century, we have earned a reputation as skilled commercial litigators who do not shy away from the courtroom. We try significantly more cases than competing firms of a similar size, and our current attorneys have taken hundreds of cases to trial. Our attorneys have also argued dozens of appeals. We take a sophisticated approach to providing legal advocacy both in and out of court, and our approach has consistently produced favorable results for our clients.

While this approach often involves representing our clients at trial, we also strive to resolve our clients’ cases prior to trial whenever possible. In many cases, we have had success getting plaintiffs’ claims dismissed during the pre-trial phase of litigation, and we use our skillful and sophisticated approach to develop leverage for settlement negotiations when warranted. In all cases, our sole focus is on achieving the best possible outcome for our clients in light of the circumstances at hand, and by working closely with our clients’ key stakeholders, we help them make informed and strategic decisions about how to move forward.
