Whether in the midst of formal Business Litigation at the trial or appellate levels, or in the prelitigation stage, Ferro Labella & Weiss provides the skill, experience, and strategic approach needed to advance its clients’ rights and to defend its clients’ interests. The firm’s Business Litigation attorneys handle complex commercial civil and white-collar defense matters in state and federal courts, as well as in administrative and governmental agency settings and alternate dispute forums. As the firm’s individual and business clients operate in increasingly complex and difficult regulatory environments, the firm’s Business Litigation attorneys help guide its clients.
The firm regularly litigates share holder and membership disputes, and defends employers in employment-related disputes such as harassment and discrimination claims and violations of restrictive covenants. The firm’s attorneys frequently practice in courts of equity, and seek or defend against applications for injunctive relief. The firm is able to call upon the experience of the Hon. Peter E. Doyne (Ret.) for guidance in Chancery Division matters where he served as the Presiding Judge in the Bergen County Vicinage.
As more businesses pursue arbitration and mediation to settle their disputes, our attorneys routinely represent client’s in a variety of alternatives to traditional court-based litigation. The firm has represented clients in arbitrations in a number of forums, including those venued with the American Arbitration Association or with a hand-selected arbitrator. While successful arbitration requires the application of many of the same trial and litigation skills required to represent clients successfully in a court of law, arbitration is a unique method of dispute resolution. The extensive arbitration experiences of the litigators at Ferro Labella & Weiss have allowed us to achieve excellent results for our clients in these venues. Similarly, the firm has had many successful results through the mediation process, saving our clients significant costs and fees associated with litigating their disputes.
