Practice Areas

Contract and Other General Commercial Disputes

Pervading LLFW’s entire litigation practice are general breach of contract disputes, which overlap with practically every substantive area of the firm’s practice and which the firm routinely handles in state and federal courts and arbitral forums. LLFW has litigated and acquired extensive knowledge of all aspects of the law of contracts, particularly in New York, including issues relating to contract formation; performance and nonperformance under a contract; the rights of third-party beneficiaries of a contract; damages, injunctive relief and other remedies for a contractual breach; and the quasi-contractual remedies of quantum meruit and restitution.

In addition to the other areas categorized in our commercial litigation practice, LLFW has considerable experience with numerous types of commercial matters. Those matters include accountants’ liability, business fraud, broker-dealer disputes, employment discrimination, business valuation disputes, health care, antitrust, and due process and related constitutional infringements arising in a commercial context.
