Complex Commercial Litigation

When businesses are involved in disputes with other businesses, it is not uncommon for litigation costs to quickly skyrocket. RSG has commercial litigators who are renowned for their pragmatic and creative approaches to resolving complex commercial disputes, while keeping our clients' bottom-lines a top priority. We thoroughly review each case and carefully set realistic goals. Attorneys in our Commercial Litigation Practice have served as advocates, facilitators, and counselors to our clients, nationwide, in the following areas: contract disputes, director and officer liability, breach of fiduciary duty claims, intellectual property disputes, unfair competition claims, indemnity disputes, interference with business contracts, administrative law claims, high value commercial arbitrations, breach of confidentiality agreements, claims of libel and slander and successor liability claims.

In addition to providing direct defense to our corporate clients, we have extensive experience in handling insurance coverage disputes on behalf of our insurer clientele arising under CGL, D&O and E&O policies. RSG has successfully litigated declaratory judgment actions in federal and state courts nationwide. Whether providing a direct defense or acting as coverage counsel, a commercial litigator must have certain traits. That attorney must have quick instincts, a keen perception and a solid reputation. Our litigators fit this mold and have the track record to prove it.
