Our commercial litigation practice involves matters relating to a broad range of general contract and commercial tort disputes, intellectual property issues and the defense of individual and class action suits brought under a wide variety of theories and statutes, including the Consumer Fraud Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act.  Our attorneys have handled commercial litigation matters in state and federal courts across the nation.  We also have substantial experience in arbitrations in this area.  Michaels, Schulwolf & Salerno attorneys have represented both plaintiffs and defendants in these disputes. 

Commercial matters can involve disputes over substantial commercial activities.  Michaels, Schulwolf  & Salerno attorneys have become adept at learning their clients’ businesses in order to effectively investigate and evaluate these cases. We have significant experience with respect to the legal contexts in which commercial disputes arise, including intellectual property, advertising liability, consumer fraud and consumer protection, unfair business practices, trade secrets, securities, employment and class action defense. Our attorneys also have had substantial success in arbitrating commercial disputes under multiple procedural frameworks.

Michaels, Schulwolf & Salerno lawyers also have had significant experience and success in defending clients against suits seeking expedited equitable relief, including temporary restraining orders and preliminary and permanent injunctions. Our attorneys go the extra mile to prepare and litigate complex matters in the extraordinarily compressed time frames these types of suits typically present.

Our attorneys have achieved highly favorable results and settlements in the general commercial litigation arena. We are sensitive to litigation costs and risks and work hand-in-hand with our clients to fashion litigation and negotiation strategies to accomplish their goals in an efficient and cost-effective manner. However, when necessary, Michaels, Schulwolf & Salerno has what it takes to efficiently and aggressively litigate and try these disputes.
