The attorneys of Winter & Grossman also draw upon their experience in representing clients in general and complex commercial transactions and litigation.
A range of representation is available to our commercial clients, including those relating to general business matters, mergers and acquisitions, financing, leasing, as well as consulting and non-competition agreements.
We are often called upon by our matrimonial clients to assist them with such matters as well since their matrimonial case and their commercial matter may each have an impact upon one another. We also often work with clients' accountants and business attorneys as well to ensure that each client’s rights are protected, and that we are considering the “big picture” and not just their matrimonial case.
Our attorneys bring solid business backgrounds to each matter. Our philosophy is that we are "dealmakers, not deal breakers." Any attorney can cause a transaction to fall apart by saying "no" or by "over-lawyering". Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who work to achieve the client's goals while avoiding pitfalls. We make every effort to help our clients save time and money, so that they can continue focusing on business.
When business does not proceed as planned, however, we are prepared to aggressively litigate any dispute to protect and serve our client's interests. We litigate and arbitrate commercial disputes.
The firm has successfully litigated and achieved favorable results for clients in commercial disputes. Notable successes include litigating 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 litigation of a dispute between partners of an established real estate conglomerate, which resulted in a favorable financial settlement for our client.
