The Peckar & Abramson Commercial Litigation Group: Providing answers and results that make legal and business sense

Every year, business disputes consume billions of dollars and untold amounts of time. At Peckar & Abramson, we believe that while the potential cost of litigation must be anticipated in any business strategy, two other corollary ideas must be taken into account:

  • The right law firm can help a company defuse disputes early, saving time and money
  • If a dispute cannot be avoided or defused, the firm must be prepared to litigate – and win

Our litigation attorneys are skilled at anticipating and preventing trouble and have trial, mediation, arbitration and appellate experience in nearly every type of commercial dispute.

Practice Details: Enabling solutions that make business sense

Very early on, Peckar and Abramson recognized how important it is bring practicality and efficiency to the resolution of disputes through the application of negotiation and mediation. As a result, we became a leader in the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), mediation and arbitration as well as other techniques to avoid costly litigation and reach prudent solutions that make business sense. In circumstances where litigation is unavoidable, we work with our clients to develop a litigation strategy and aggressively represent clients from the earliest phases and through trial and appeals if necessary.
