Business Litigation

Business litigation practice

We do business law and business litigation, often acting as outside general counsel. The Chair of the firm's Business Litigation Practice is Tim Polishan.

How we work

Our work is thorough and pragmatic. We plan, using strong experience gained in many cases involving many industries, including but not limited to banking, gaming, construction, distribution, health care, insurance, law firms, manufacturing, non-profits, physicians, railroad and real estate.

Who we work for

Our lawyers have discreetly represented businesses, business owners, corporate officers, physicians, lawyers, public figures, officials, clubs, families, and individuals who have been harmed as well as those accused of doing harm. Moreover, the firm maintains a consistent, substantial commitment to pro bono clients in the Scranton area and throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania.

How we litigate

We identify gain and risk so you can make informed choices. Long before litigation is inevitable, we work to open as many options as possible.

Every cost in a lawsuit is an opportunity cost, an investment that might be better spent elsewhere. Our firm never forgets that, from the earliest point, to trial and beyond. The effects of litigation on your business reputation and operations can make an otherwise worthwhile lawsuit a bad use of your time and money.  

That said, sometimes, the only reasonable choice is to litigate a business dispute and, if necessary, bring it to trial. We have decades of experience doing what's best to achieve our clients' goals. This includes trying cases to verdict in federal, state, civil, criminal, jury and non-jury trials.

Our experience

Our experience includes a wide range of complex civil and criminal matters, in corporate and individual representations, for plaintiffs and defendants, in trials and hearings, appeals, arbitration, administrative proceedings, grand jury proceedings, class and collective actions, mediation and settlement negotiation.

Matters included
