Commercial Litigation

New Jersey Commercial Litigation Attorneys

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Hunziker, Jones & Sweeney are familiar with and understand the intricacies of the Uniform Commercial Code, and the panoply of state and federal laws that are implicated in most business transactions. If your legal matter concerns any aspect of business governed by commercial law, such as, asset or stock purchases/sales of businesses, marketing, banking, employment issues and compliance, collections, or contracts, it is advisable to retain an attorney who is well-versed in these areas, and our office is available to assist you.

The attorneys at our firm implement strategies concerning both your long-term and short-term objectives in handling your commercial litigation matters. Such disputes arise in a variety of different contexts within the business world. They may include actions seeking to enforce, or challenge, agreements limiting competition, the misuse of intellectual property, allegations of fraudulent or deceptive practices, abuses of trust, and breaches of contract, just to name a few. Moreover, even within a single business, dissension may occur and numerous claims may arise as a result, including those of oppressed minority shareholders/owners, allegations of diverted corporate opportunities; misappropriation of company funds, and other breaches of fiduciary duties.

While often it seems that the only way to resolve such disputes is to litigate, careful consideration also needs to be given to alternative dispute resolution – arbitration or mediation – and ideally in the earlier stages of the conflict before it erupts into an uncontrollable conflagration. Typically, resolving a dispute in one of these ways can be more cost-effective, while alleviating the uncertainty of trial and offering the parties a chance to work on the solutions to their conflicts instead of proceeding down the time-consuming, protracted, and expensive road of litigation.
