Commercial Litigation

In commercial transactions, it is not uncommon for the parties to disagree as to each party’s duties and obligations. The majority of commercial lawsuits arise out of contractual disputes. For example, the parties may disagree over the meaning of the terms in a contract or disagree as to whether certain provisions of a contract apply to a certain situation.

In New York, a person or business seeking to recover damages in a breach of contract claim must first prove that a contract exists. Then, they must set forth evidence showing that the contract was materially breached, and damages resulted from the breach. In addition to contractual disputes, commercial litigation can arise out of shareholder conflicts, tortious behavior by a business, and breaches of fiduciary duties, among other situations. Commercial litigation is complex and multi-faceted. If you need assistance in this area, it is vital to retain a commercial litigation attorney in New York who is experienced in handling these cases.

Personal Injury

Lawsuits seeking compensation for injuries are a common type of civil lawsuit. Personal injury cases can arise in numerous situations but are often caused by car accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, and defective products.

The core of most personal injury cases is the allegation that the defendant acted negligently and should be held responsible for the injured person’s harm. To prove a defendant’s liability based on negligence, the injured person must show that the defendant breached a duty of care owed to them, and the breach caused the accident and the victim’s harm. Each case is unique and requires a thorough analysis of the facts. Michael Jagiani can vigorously represent you in your pursuit of compensation.

Real Estate

Contracts are an essential element of New York real estate transactions and allow the parties to define their goals and expectations clearly. A detailed contract that thoroughly delineates the rights and obligations of each party is critical to avoid conflicts and establish guidelines for how any breach or disagreement should be resolved. Therefore, if you are in the process of buying or selling real estate, it is important to engage an attorney who is proficient in handling real estate transactions to assist you in drafting a contract that will protect your interests. Michael Jagiani can help you negotiate the terms of a contract, and he also can use his experience as a New York commercial litigation attorney to help you resolve any disputes arising from it.

In addition to contractual terms, a party contemplating a real estate transaction sometimes also must contend with issues pertaining to zoning, financing, and any easements or encumbrances on a property. There are numerous aspects of buying and selling real estate that must be considered to ensure that a transaction is completed smoothly.
