NYC Commercial Litigation Lawyer

Superior Skill, Superior Work Ethic, Superior Results

It is very rare to find a New York City business lawyer that 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 and hire an NYC commercial litigation lawyer.

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 and at last hiring a business litigation lawyer in NYC.

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 the 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.

    As an attorney myself I appreciated Scott’s diligence, enthusiasm and communication. We finally got the primary carrier to put up its policy limits so that an underinsurance arbitration can be demanded. I’m confident that Scott will continue to fight to maximize my recovery.

    I was highly recommended to Mr. Scott Richman through a family member of mine. Mr Richman was very professional and attentive to our situation. He walked us through the whole process of what to expect as we were looking to be compensated for our daughter’s injury due to a car accident that she was involved in. His time and attention to our case left a positive impression on us. He answered all our questions, emails and phone calls in a speedily manner. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone else that is looking for a caring and attention to detail lawyer such as him.

    In a pinch, I needed general legal services within 24 hours. After a quick search, I found Scott and his firm and gave them a call. Scott answered the phone, took the time to walk me through what was happening and what I needed done, and then went out of his way to make sure it was taken care of that day. He even met me after business hours to ensure everything was taken care of, even printing out extra copies of everything to make sure I had one on file. I highly recommend Scott and his team for any of your legal needs - he is fantastic!

    Scott Richman took a painful and unpleasant experience and helped me navigate it while always being available to answer any questions or address any concerns whether it was via email or phone. He always took the time to explain everything including any areas of confusion without making me feel stupid or small. He was always respectful, very knowledgeable, and worked so hard on my case. I cannot recommend him highly enough for any legal needs you may have.

    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.

    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.
