New Jersey Commercial Litigation Lawyers
As the operation of your business is your primary focus, at Einhorn Barbarito we will always explore all opportunities to resolve your business dispute amicably and through negotiation without the need for time consuming, expensive and distracting formal litigation. The Einhorn Barbarito Commercial Litigation attorneys have extensive experience in the trial courts of the State of New Jersey and can also guide you through the process of mediation and arbitration as well.
When business relationships become fractured, disputes that cannot be resolved through discussion or negotiation can often result in the filing of a lawsuit. The term “commercial litigation” generally applies to any type of litigation or lawsuit related to business issues. The issues can include: Shareholder or Member disputes, including dissolution, breach of contract issues, disputes between Employers and Employees, disputes with customers, vendors and suppliers, Consumer Fraud Act litigation, Collection Litigation and matters involving construction contracts, defect claims and Construction litigation (which may include the New Jersey Construction Lien Law).
If you are a business owner — whether it be a corporation, partnership, sole proprietorship or limited liability company (LLC) — and your dispute necessitates the filing of or defending a lawsuit or demand for arbitration, call the attorneys at Einhorn Barbarito at 973-627-7300. We handle business issues and litigation throughout New Jersey.
Breach of Contract Litigation
The most frequent type of commercial litigation involves contracts and alleged breaches by one party or another. In this area, litigation is often necessary because the terms at issue in a contract are often unclear and open to more than one interpretation. Therefore, when the Einhorn Barbarito business attorneys are tasked with preparing contracts, they are meticulous in their attention to detail. However, whether a contract is prepared by Einhorn Barbarito or others, contract disputes can end up in formal litigation. The Einhorn Barbarito attorneys will always attempt to resolve the case through negotiation first. However, if settlement becomes unattainable, our trial attorneys will not hesitate to protect the rights of our clients and zealously represent them at trial.
In a competitive business environment, disputes can arise in which one party claims they are owed money for goods or services. Often, the other party claims the goods were deficient or defective or the services were not what was expected or bargained for. The litigation attorneys at Einhorn Barbarito will evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your case and represent you or your business, whether you are a plaintiff or a defendant in a collection matter. The Einhorn Barbarito attorneys are familiar with the Fair Debt Collection Act and know the legal rights of the parties on both sides of the transaction.
Corporate/Partnership Disputes and Dissolution
Despite the best of intentions, sometimes business organizations and the people that own and control them simply do not get along professionally. Whether a corporation, LLC or partnership, disputes arise which could lead to the dissolution of the business. If such circumstances arise, negotiating an amicable “business divorce” is our first priority. However, if a dispute leading to possible dissolution cannot be resolved fairly, the commercial litigation attorneys at Einhorn Barbarito are experienced and knowledgeable in bringing a formal lawsuit to resolve these disputes while protecting our clients’ interests.Print PDF
