Commercial litigation claims

Involvement in a commercial litigation matter can negatively impact your business. Thus, it is advisable that you consult with a reputable New York attorney if you are seeking or facing litigation. The Law Offices of Tacopina Seigel & DeOreo can assist you with the following issues:

  • Pleading requirements:

    Depending on the nature of the dispute, a commercial litigant may be required to plead multiple causes of action.

  • Issues to look for during discovery:

    Discovery, in most commercial litigation matters, is extremely document-intensive. In the modern era, e-discovery often makes up the bulk of the documents under review. That said, depositions and interrogatories play an essential role in many commercial disputes.

  • Using expert witnesses:

    Any number of expert witnesses might be called to testify in a commercial litigation matter, including forensic accountants, engineers, computer experts, data management experts, bankers, securities experts and tax experts.
