Strong client demand fueled our commercial practice, a logical fit for our firm and insurance- focused practice.  Our years of insurance work have given us a deep knowledge of a vast number of industries and a unique appreciation for potential problems within those industries.  For example, we utilize our experience from years of reviewing and litigating indemnification and insurance issues in the construction arena to draft strong and enforceable indemnification and insurance contract provisions. We also utilize this experience to review contracts and policies for our client to assure that they have the insurance in place to meet their contractual obligations.  

Our commercial practice goes beyond construction to include a wide variety of industries, including real estate, insurance and financial brokers and agents, manufacturers, and technology companies.   The practice is not limited to just transactional contract drafting and reviewing.  We also litigate on behalf of our clients in state and federal courts across metropolitan New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. 

We approach the handling of our commercial clients’ claims with an eye toward avoiding litigation now and in the future.  Whenever possible, we emphasize alternative resolutions, including unique settlements and utilization of alternative forums, to assure a cost-effective, expedited resolution.  These commercial claims are handled with the same zeal and dedication for which we are known in the insurance arena.
