The commercial litigation lawyers of Vaughan Baio & Partners counsel executives, board directors and stakeholders at companies of all sizes on both complex and day-to-day disputes. Our lawyers assist clients with corporate litigation, securities litigation, franchise disputes, RICO and consumer protection litigation, and real estate and tax assessment disputes. We also work in tandem with the firm’s other divisions to advise clients on their litigation exposure to product liability problems, insurance coverage issues, cyber liability disputes and beyond.
EXTENSIVE PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
All business activity presents opportunity for conflict. Organizations confronting disputes that entail high-stakes, “bet-the-company” litigation need the right legal team in their corner to execute appropriate litigation plans that achieve their desired results. Vaughan Baio & Partners is well equipped to guide your company boldly through the challenges of commercial litigation. Our lawyers have routinely worked with Fortune 500 companies, insurance companies, reinsurance organizations and real estate conglomerates to manage the issues impacting their businesses. We have worked with car dealerships, food manufacturers and other manufacturing companies to address their commercial contracts, governance matters and corporate transactional conflicts.
COLLEGIAL AND COLLABORATIVE WITH CLIENTS
At Vaughan Baio & Partners, we pride ourselves on handling commercial litigation matters with creativity and focus. We do not merely hand off our cases to associates who are unfamiliar with your needs and goals. Instead, we organize a team of attorneys who will meet with you to discuss your case expectations and review your file materials, allowing us to assess how to resolve your dispute in the most efficient, effective manner.
Our commercial litigation team is spearheaded by Kevin F. Berry, a seasoned commercial litigator who has achieved a Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating and tried more than 200 civil jury trials to verdict. He regularly works on litigation matters related to corporations, financial institutions, and insurance and reinsurance entities. He has also secured multimillion-dollar verdicts for many of his clients, including a $1.6 billion disputed reinsurance claim on behalf of a domestic carrier arising from losses sustained from the events of September 11, 2001. Our lawyers embrace the complex challenges that accompany commercial litigation and will work with you to develop the right approach to secure injunctions, handle franchise disputes and navigate real estate financing conflicts. Our collective experience working with in-house counsel allows us to understand and relate to our clients’ sensitive, ever-changing needs.
CREATIVE SOLUTIONS TO LITIGATION
When handling commercial law disputes, it can take creativity to achieve the best results. We do not see litigation as an obstacle, but use it as an opportunity to further our clients’ interests. Our lawyers apply this principle to their litigation practice every day. Our attorneys, for example, have used civil litigation mechanisms, debt restructuring, workouts and stock-related strategies to help a water company prevail over a new competitor at trial. In doing so, our lawyers helped this client obtain a new water rights agreement and funnel in new capital. Our lawyers have also negotiated pre-arbitration settlements that have prompted significant stock gains, trying cases to verdict at all levels of federal and state courts.
Vaughan Baio & Associates’ commercial litigators are here to help you resolve your disputes successfully. Regardless of your situation, we will work with you to craft customized litigation strategies that will help you address or dispose of litigation in a manner that best suits your organization’s needs.
