Finocchiaro & Associates, P.C.

Delivering Efficient Legal Solutions For Business.

Commercial Litigation

Our commercial litigation practice is nationwide, representing clients across the country in state and federal courts involving a wide variety of complex disputes, arbitrations and alternative dispute resolution matters. Cases include major multi-party construction litigation, breach of contract, RICO, injunctions, and various real estate disputes.

Because we also have an active commercial transaction practice, we are well-versed in the intricacies of the defining instruments of a transaction, in particular with AIA-based contract documents, that arms us with a distinct advantage in litigating complex construction disputes and advising our clients as to the scopes of legal responsibility of the various team members. The depth of our knowledge and experience in both litigation and development enables us to handle sophisticated client demands with agility and personal attention, avoiding the bulky and costly over-staffing all too common in larger firms.
