As a result, we have a deep knowledge of how New York and Wall Street businesses operate, interact, and evolve.

Breach of Contract
We work with our clients to assess the validity of contracts, the extent of the breach, and the computation of their damages. A breach of contract involves the following several core elements:
- The parties formed a valid contract;
- Plaintiff performed its obligations pursuant to the agreement;
- Defendant failed to perform or materially breached the contract;
- Plaintiff suffered damages due to this breach.
Our careful analysis helps us craft robust legal arguments that protect both the business and corporate interests of our clients. Depending on your circumstances, you might be entitled to both compensatory and liquidated damages, rescission, or specific performance of the contract. Contact a Wall Street commercial litigation attorney at one of our offices for more information.
While most people associate tort law with personal injury claims, the law of business torts recognizes that corporate entities, no less than individuals, can suffer economic injuries. On Wall Street, reputation, intellectual property, trade secrets, and relationships are some of a business’ most valuable assets. When these are damaged by another entity, you may have a business tort claim.
A Wall Street commercial litigation attorney can prosecute or defend, on your or your company’s behalf, claims involving the following:
- Breach of fiduciary duty
- Breach of an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing
- Civil RICO and racketeering claims
- Deceptive trade practices
- Fraud and misrepresentation
- Interference with employment relationships
- Tortious interference with a contract
- Trade disparagement
