litigation & arbitration


  • Overview


overview of services

Successfully prosecuting or defending business litigation and arbitration is grounded on a sophisticated appreciation and understanding of the business issues and a mastering of the litigation process.

Similarly, to fashion a settlement of a business dispute requires negotiation skills and an understanding of whatever business options are available to the parties.

Because of the inseparable connection between business transactional law issues and technical and strategic litigation issues, I work with the law firm of Cotugno & Rust, LLC in assisting clients in their litigation disputes.
