Business & Commercial Litigation

Wexler Wallace attorneys represent businesses throughout the country in complex disputes, which range from breach of contract claims to business torts, including fraud, unfair competition and breach of fiduciary duty. We are prepared, in these matters, to deal with a well-heeled and well-represented adversary; that is the nature of our practice. We can and have represented small businesses on a contingency when that business has to litigate against a larger adversary that engaged in unfair and unlawful conduct.

We at Wexler Wallace are more than capable of utilizing aggressive representation in a case when necessary, but have also employed a creative approach to successfully handle difficult cases with a favorable result, at times through alternative dispute resolution, such as mediation or arbitration. Our willingness to extend our services for those cases that other firms are unwilling or unable to handle is just another testament to our commitment to positive change.
