Commercial Litigation

Effective advocacy requires meticulous preparation and a deep understanding of the facts and laws at issue.

Commercial litigation may not always be the best way to resolve problems, but when it becomes necessary, the litigators at Capell Barnett Matalon & Schoenfeld are always ready to protect our clients’ interests, whether it is in the trial or appellate courts. Our experienced attorneys are well versed in substantive law and litigation tactics and work with the firm’s practice groups to provide a deep understanding of your business or industry.

Our clients can rest assured that they will receive 100% from our litigation team, which has maintained an impressive record of success in contested corporate and commercial matters, commercial and residential real estate, leasing and landlord/tenant litigation, collections, labor/employment law, probate proceedings, real estate ventures, matrimonial, criminal and tax issues.

Our litigators pride themselves in having established reputations as fierce advocates for our clients who know how to leverage our litigation skills to achieve successful resolutions, whether it be through trial or a pragmatic settlement. We have tried hundreds of cases, and settled well over a thousand.

Creative solutions to difficult matters are one of our many strengths. We have earned a reputation amongst our colleagues and in the courts for zealous and tenacious representation and high-quality work product. Preparation is the key to our success. Our creative, competent, experienced, skilled, hard working lawyers are our greatest asset.

We are pleased to complement the firm’s practices in Commercial Real Estate and Development, Commercial Leasing, Corporate and Commercial Transactions, Taxation, Estate Planning and Administration, Elder Law and Medicaid Planning, and Religious and Charitable Organizations law in both our midtown Manhattan and Jericho, Long Island offices.

Working with our skilled religious corporation and not-for-profit attorneys, we have made significant contributions to the continuing development of the law relating to church governance in New York and regularly advise religious organizations and their lawyers outside the New York area.

Although we frequently litigate on behalf of our existing clients, many clients seek us out for our litigation skills alone. Much of our practice involves complex matters referred by other attorneys and current or former clients, but we handle many routine matters as well.

Our experience and interdisciplinary approach provide us the litigation capabilities and level of success of much larger firms. Let us put that skill and experience to work for you.
