Business and Commercial Litigation

Business and Commercial Litigation

When the stakes are high, clients trust Gurley Fant to resolve their sophisticated business and commercial litigation matters. Our lawyers are highly knowledgeable and experienced in litigating complex commercial disputes, across a multitude of industries, nationally and internationally.

From the very start, our lawyers employ a collaborative process, through which we identify the factual and legal issues and the unique commercial and business conerns impacting the client to develop a comprehensive strategy to effectively approach those issues from discovery through trial or other resolution.

We effectively litigate, and more importantly, try complex cases involving a broad range of disputes. In an era when many lawyers seldom see the inside of a courtroom, our clients receive the benefit and advantage of our extensive trial experience.

While our lawyers are skilled litigators who are highly regarded for their extensive experience and sound judgment in litigating defining cases of national and international importance, we appreciate that litigation, and ultimately trial, is not always the appropriate answer for our clients’ broad business objectives. In significant, complex business disputes, we are trusted advisors to our clients in matters ranging from pre-litigation strategies to the decision of when, where and how to try cases.

We approach commercial litigation as a business matter, and we work with each of our clients to achieve the best outcome under the circumstances, in the most prompt and cost-efficient manner. Our litigation risk minimization approach provides our clients with high-value legal services, trial-ready strategies and superior negotiating positions.

In addition to our commercial litigation practice in state and federal courts, our lawyers handle commercial litigation matters in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands and internationally through our network of consulting lawyers and law firms around the globe.

We represent clients as plaintiffs and defendants in a wide range of commercial disputes over the interpretation and enforceability of complex commercial instruments and agreements in all forms. Our practice covers the full spectrum of litigation services, including trials, arbitrations, administrative proceedings and hearings, and appeals in federal and state courts, in disputes involving:

  • Breach of contract litigation
  • Corporate litigation
  • Business litigation and partnership disputes
  • Construction litigation
  • Commercial transactions and litigation
  • Insurance litigation
  • Injunctions and declaratory judgment actions
  • Other types of complex business litigation

Our client base is diverse. Although national corporations form the core of our client base, our cost-effective and efficient approach allows us to represent smaller regional and local businesses and select individuals.
