Commercial Matters

The attorneys of Winter & Grossman draw upon their extensive experience in representing clients in general and complex commercial transactions and litigation. A wide range of representation is available to our commercial clients, including those relating to general business matters, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, financing, leasing, employment contracts, as well as consulting and non competition agreements.

Our attorneys bring solid business backgrounds to each matter. Our philosophy regarding transactional matters is that we are "dealmakers, not deal breakers." Any attorney can break a deal simply by saying "no" or "over-lawyering" a proposed transaction. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who work to achieve the client's goals while avoiding the pitfalls that often interfere with proposed transactions. We seek to help our clients close, and make every effort to either save or make them money.

When business does not proceed as planned, however, we are fully prepared to aggressively litigate any dispute to protect and serve our client's interests. We litigate commercial disputes in State and Federal courts as well as before arbitration tribunals.

The firm has successfully litigated and achieved favorable results for clients in commercial disputes. Notable successes include a dispute by the owners of a high-profile nightclub with the previous owners, which resulted in substantial savings to our client; the settlement of an infringement action brought by a major international software company, resulting in savings to our client by limiting the client's exposure; and the settlement of a dispute between partners of an established real estate conglomerate, which resulted in a favorable financial settlement for our client. We recently successfully represented an investment analyst in a dispute with his former hedge fund employer to achieve a significant recovery for our client.
