NYC Commercial Litigation Lawyer

Superior Skill, Superior Work Ethic, Superior Results

It is very rare to find a New York City business who won’t face a commercial litigation action at some point. But the best way to win a commercial lawsuit is to anticipate problems before they begin.

Developing a relationship with an attorney in advance of adverse action is one of the best steps you can take to protect your company and assets.

Protecting Your Company

Every business owner should spend some time discussing the best ways to eliminate litigation and liability risks. It’s also a good idea to ensure that you are not taking any actions which could pierce the corporate veil, exposing your personal assets in the event of a lawsuit.

There are simple ways to protect yourself of course, such as filing separate tax returns, keeping a separate bank account, and ensuring your records are in good, proper order.

But there are other ways to create liability. The law is complex, and it is easy to make mistakes in this regard. Seemingly innocuous, innocent actions can create legal issues later down the line.

Doing so can save you a great deal of money. Every step you take to prevent a lawsuit is money you don’t have to spend defending yourself against one.

Navigating Lawsuits

Attorney for Commercial Disputes

Reducing liability is not a barrier to lawsuit(s) being filed. Business lawsuits are so common that anticipating them and managing them is just another part of running your company, as vital to your operations as product creation, logistics, operations, or customer service.

Lawsuits can come from a number of different sources:

  • From customers, when they believe a product or service has harmed, injured, or failed them.
  • From employees, when they feel they’ve been discriminated against, wrongfully terminated, or harassed.
  • From vendors or partners who attempt to breach contracts with you, or who accuse you of breaching them.
  • From anyone who gets hurt while on your property, through an act of alleged negligence, or collides with a company vehicle.
  • From investors who believe you have failed to protect their interests and investment returns.
  • When your partners, officers, or board members have a dispute with you.

Even companies who act in good faith at all times can become embroiled in these types of lawsuits.

Scott Richman handled my case with the utmost care, respect, and expediently. I had a civil matter that he resolved for me, and leaving this matter in his hands was the best thing I could have done. He communicates effectively and often, and ensures that as his client you are never in the dark. Very grateful for his services and give him my highest recommendation.

Mr. Richman is one of the most capable civil litigators I have met. He conducts his practice fairly and ethically at all times. He always approaches each case with several strategies, he has no problem standing up for his client’s interests, and he uses his talent for quick thinking to resolve issues for his clients very efficiently. I have referred several clients to his firm because I trust that he will do excellent work for anyone that retains his services. I endorse this lawyer.

Richman Law Firm PLLC is an amazing firm and worth working perusing is you need a lawyer. Scott Richman works hard and took care of everything quickly. He was easy to get a hold of, answering emails and phone calls immediately almost every time. He settled my case within a little over 8 weeks. He was in constant contact, keeping me up to date on the progress of my case. After settling my case, he reached out often to be sure I received my check and to confirm that all looked as promised per our contract. He answered every question, never making me feel stupid or small. He is a great guy to work with, very nice and very professional. Hire this firm, you won’t regret it.

Scott makes sure to focus on the right issues to get the best outcomes for his clients. I strongly recommend Scott for those in need of a strong, aggressive attorney in New York.
