New York City Business Litigation Attorney

Back Your Case with Decades of Experience

Today's business sector is extremely competitive and complex. One of the ramifications of this is the high possibility of having to occasionally engage in litigation in order to resolve disputes with the individuals or companies with whom you do business.

Business litigation has become so commonplace, in fact, that the state court system has a separate section referred to as "commercial parts," which specializes in handling business disputes, whether by settlement or by trial. If you are attempting to resolve a business-related dispute and anticipate having to enter into litigation, whether as a plaintiff or as a defendant, it is to your benefit to contact a New York City business litigation lawyer who can provide you with aggressive and thorough representation.

At the Law Office of Steven R. Sutton, we are dedicated to helping people who are dealing with these complex cases. We understand the ins and outs of these issues and can walk with you throughout every stage of the case. To date, we have been able to recover millions of dollars on behalf of our clients and will work to get you the maximum amount possible in your specific case.

Types of Business Litigation Cases

  • Partner Disputes - Disputes amongst business partners can occur for a variety of reasons, including a lack of agreement regarding profits or the direction of the business, declining revenue, the entry of a new partner, or the lack of a properly drafted partnership agreement.
  • New Business Start-Ups - When you come up with an idea for a new business, there are many steps involved in translating that idea into successful reality, including choosing the correct business entity, finding the ideal business location, and building up a strong group of clients and suppliers.
  • Breach of Contract - Breach of contract is possibly the most encountered dispute in the business sector. Such cases can involve contracts for leases, purchases or sales, partnership agreements, or other business relationships/transactions, and may be in written or oral form.
  • Nondisclosure Agreements - A nondisclosure agreement, or NDA, is a signed contract between two parties that is designed to protect one of the party's trade secrets. In essence, the first party is stating that he or she will not divulge proprietary information belonging to the second party.
  • Commercial Litigation - There are many types of commercial litigation cases, including those involving breach of contract, landlord/tenant disputes, shareholder disputes, fraud, broker disputes, actions for partition, and collection matters. An experienced litigation attorney can increase the likelihood that you will obtain a successful outcome in your case, no matter what form of commercial dispute it involves.
  • Business Transactions - For any substantial business transaction, it is recommended that you obtain help from an experienced litigation attorney. This applies to cases that involve mergers and acquisitions, employment matters, loans and equity financing, licensing of patents and intellectual property, and the forming of business entities.
  • Commercial Collections - In the current economic climate, many individuals and businesses are having a difficult time collecting the money owed to them. If you are struggling to collect on money owed to you, it is imperative that you contact an attorney for assistance, as your business or financial wellbeing may be at stake.
  • Business Dissolutions - If you have decided to dissolve your business, it is important that you take the proper steps to do so in order to avoid legal complications and protect your financial interests. While this can involve some cost, failure to do so may involve tax and other liabilities.
  • Unfair Business Practices - Every year, countless individuals are taken advantage of due to unfair business practices. If you, or your business, have been victimized in an instance of false advertising, hidden fees, or fraud, it is in your best interest to contact a lawyer who may be able to recover considerable damages for the losses you have suffered.
