Commercial Litigation

The DiFrancesco Bateman Commercial Litigation Group has evolved along with the breadth of remedies and forums now available to businesses. We have extensive experience with litigation in all courts involving corporate and partnership disputes, contract disputes, unfair competition claims and franchise disputes. We assist both lenders and private clients in matters relating to real estate foreclosure and asset recovery claims. An important part of our work is offering advice to prevent future litigation.

We give attention to our clients’ business needs and goals, the realities of litigation and its impact upon our clients’ business decisions and develop a strategy that furthers the clients’ best interests. We are keenly aware that it may make better business sense to resolve disputes before engaging in protracted and expensive litigation, and we encourage a more global view of the impact of the cost of business litigation upon the decision-making process. We encourage our business clients to avail themselves of resolution strategies that are cost-effective alternatives to litigation. Of course, if litigation is the most effective strategy, we will be prepared to advocate for our client’s interests and take the matter through trial. We applaud the New Jersey Supreme Court’s adoption of a “Business Litigation Track” for commercial litigation. This business specific litigation track will have a significant impact upon how commercial litigation is handled in the years to come. This specialized business litigation program will provide our business clients with access to Judges who have specialized knowledge in commercial disputes and will permit litigation to be discussed and hopefully resolved in a cost-effective manner to the benefit of our business clients.
