Commercial and Business Litigation

Lynch Rowin has focused on commercial and business litigation since its inception.  Our commercial cases have encompassed a wide variety of matters, including all types of corporate disputes as well as small business matters. Our many areas of expertise and experience include:

We recently represented a chemical company whose former worker had knowledge of trade secrets and was planning to work for a competitor which had threatened to copy the company's products.  At trial, we obtained a permanent injunction, barring the former employee from ever working for that competitor. 

Our attorneys have also tried complex fraud cases, including one matter which resulted in a major appellate decision concerning the tort of negligent misrepresentation. Another one of our trials resulted in a leading appellate decision, upholding a defendant's right to trial by jury when a plaintiff has sought both legal and equitable relief.

Although litigation is at the center of our practice, we recognize that it is often in our clients' best interests to avoid potentially expensive, protracted lawsuits. For that reason, we attempt, where possible, to utilize alternative dispute resolution techniques, such as mediation and arbitration. In addition, we review and negotiate contracts, employment agreements and leases, to make sure that our clients' rights are protected and help avoid exposure to future legal controversies
