BUSINESS LITIGATION

The experienced trial attorneys at Kaplan Zeena LLP understand that our clients’ first goal is to avoid litigation. In that regard, we counsel clients on preventing litigation and resolving disputes pre-suit. Lawsuits do happen, and when they do, Kaplan Zeena attorneys are prepared to vigorously represent our clients in state and federal court and in alternative dispute resolution forums, such as arbitration. Kaplan Zeena is fully committed to providing our clients with the highest quality legal services in the most effective and expeditious way possible. We recognize that each and every commercial dispute comes with a unique set of business issues. With this in mind, Kaplan Zeena works to aggressively develop a full understanding of our clients’ immediate and long term objectives in order to provide them with the most effective and efficient representation possible.

To achieve these goals, we routinely work with clients to make candid, strategic assessments of each case, as we weigh the company’s options in light of the relevant legal and business considerations. It is of paramount importance that our clients remain fully apprised of the developments related to their cases and the way in which these developments impact litigation strategy, so that, together, we can keep the litigation in line with the client’s business goals. In each case, we provide a case report which lays out the strategy and tactics for reaching the desired result which includes an assessment of possible dispositive motions, the scope of discovery, necessary witnesses and the need for expert testimony.

At the end of the day, our goal is to obtain the best possible result for our client. While this may mean prevailing at a jury trial, frequently it means positioning the case to reach an advantageous settlement. The best way to reach an advantageous settlement is to demonstrate to the opposing party and its counsel that you will take the case to trial, if necessary, and win.

Examples of the types of matters that we handle include partnership and shareholder disputes, restricted covenant and non-compete agreements, contract litigation, real estate litigation, breach of contract, insurance coverage disputes, construction disputes, business torts, breach of fiduciary duty, and all other business-related matters.
