We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust the sails.

Business Litigation

Iurillo Law Group, P.A.'s team of attorneys have successfully represented numerous businesses, professionals and entrepreneurs confronting business disputes in state and federal court. When the storm hits and controversy arises, the odds for success greatly improve when preparations are made, the storm sails are hoisted and a commitment is made to weather through the storm. For this reason, we encourage our clients not to wait until the head winds of litigation are overwhelming and, instead, try to be proactive and stay ahead of the storm. We work with our clients to understand their specific business goals and objectives and develop strategies to navigate toward practical and cost effective solutions. Our experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in court provides us with valuable insight to the pathways that may lie ahead. At the foundation of our legal strategy is providing a thoughtful analysis of legal and business issue our clients face so that they are able to make informed risk and business decisions. We are known for our thorough and detailed preparation and appropriately aggressive representation. This reputation benefits our clients as our adversaries know that we will be organized, assertive and responsive at each stage of the process.

We have over 35 years of combined experience in a broad range of litigation matters including:

  • Breach of contract disputes
  • Interference with contract
  • Business, partnership and shareholder disputes
  • Disputes over the terms of asset-purchase agreements
  • Disputes over non-compete and confidential agreements and obtaining injunctive relief to enforce non-compete and confidential agreements
  • Landlord and tenant disputes, commercial and residential, arising out of lease agreements
  • Real estate disputes
  • Collection of accounts receivable
  • Fraud and misrepresentation
  • Successor liability
  • Lender liability
  • Corporate governance claims
  • Alter ego claims

When mapping out a course with our clients, we advise them of both litigation and settlement strategies. Prior to or during the lawsuit, there is usually the opportunity to reach a resolution outside of the courtroom through a process called alternative dispute resolution ("ADR"), including mediation. The advantages of ADR include control of the decision making without the intervention of a judge, a certain result, reduced cost, resolution in a timely manner and confidentiality. However, if this process is not successful, then the dispute will go to trial.

Please review our Creditors' Rights and Business and Corporate Law pages for additional information that may be relevant to businesses, professionals and entrepreneurs. In addition, please review the description of the broad range of clients we commonly represent on our Representative Clients page.
