Commercial Litigation

Ganfer Shore Leeds & Zauderer attorneys work closely with our domestic and international clients at all stages of litigation to develop cost-effective strategies designed to expeditiously arrive at favorable outcomes to contested matters. Our attorneys—many of them trained at large law firms and government agencies to handle complex litigation—appear regularly before federal and state courts in New York State and around the country, as well as before arbitration panels and administrative agencies. We also regularly engage in mediation in an attempt to resolve disputes without the need for litigation or at an early stage of litigation.

Our Commercial Litigation group represents clients, including individuals and entities, in such industries as real estate brokerage, securities, financial services, construction, media and entertainment, gaming, internet, computer, clothing, hospitality, manufacturing and engineering, legal, accounting, architecture, communications, real estate investment trusts, technology, health care, title insurance, airlines, and the art market.

Our litigators also have extensive experience in working with international clients and on cases having international issues, including advising foreign clients and lawyers on the laws of the United States, and coordinating with international legal teams in cases being litigated in or involving the laws of more than one jurisdiction.
