Commercial Litigation

Studin Young PC handles a wide range of complex business and commercial disputes from pre-litigation negotiations through trial and appeal, in state and federal courts as well as in domestic and international arbitration and mediation.  And while trial is often a last resort to leveraging a favorable settlement, our litigation approach is simple yet effective:  be aggressive; treat each case as if it will go to trial; and above all else, understand and implement our client’s business objectives in the most cost-effective manner.

Our attorneys have represented businesses and individuals as defendants and plaintiffs from the most basic contract disputes to the most complex, first-impression antitrust and securities issues, and have achieved incredible results.  Often our clients come to us with high-stakes litigation that threatens the very existence or success of the company — and whether it be a billion-dollar securities class action case, enforcing our clients’ contractual rights, protecting our clients’ brand, kicking out a fraudulent business partner, or a zoning and land use dispute that prevents our client from adding stores in ideal locations, we have delivered.

Examples of the subject matters that we litigate include:

  • Complex commercial transactions;
  • Breach of contract;
  • Breach of fiduciary duty; mismanagement and corporate theft;
  • Business divorce, derivative actions and other owner/partner disputes;
  • Fraud and unfair competition;
  • Defamation;
  • Labor & Employment;
  • Construction;
  • Intellectual property (copyright, trademark, trade secrets, etc.);
  • Securities;
  • Antitrust;
  • Real Estate, Land Use and Zoning; and more.
