Commercial and Business Litigation
Successful business owners and management know that today’s fast-paced and competitive business environment invariably leads to situations where they must take decisive action to protect their legal rights through litigation. They also know that litigation often comes with a steep price, not only in terms of hard dollars and cents, but also in terms of the time and internal resources that must be devoted to the defense or prosecution of a lawsuit, as well as the potential reputational risks associated with a public airing of commercial disputes. Given the stakes, selecting the right law firm to guide them through the litigation process is among the most important decisions faced by companies and individuals. Whether defending our clients against lawsuits arising out of business disputes, or prosecuting claims against others, Winget, Spadafora & Schwartzberg provides its clients with the experience, knowledge and personal attention necessary to evaluate the merits of any existing or potential claims and to develop and implement an effective litigation plan.
