Contract Disputes

Yankwitt LLP represents businesses and individuals in a wide variety of contract disputes across all legal disciplines. We regularly appear before federal and state courts, arbitral tribunals and mediators in litigation involving:

  • Purchase Agreements
  • Shareholder Agreements
  • Partnership Agreements
  • Employment Agreements
  • Construction contracts
  • Insurance policies
  • Licensing agreements
  • Commercial Leases

While no two clients and cases are the same, one thing remains constant – the attorneys at Yankwitt LLP always listen to our clients. We then strive to resolve their cases in the most cost-effective way that meets their goals, all the while tirelessly and aggressively advocating on our clients' behalf.

As aggressive trial lawyers who honed our skills at major New York City law firms and as former federal prosecutors, we know all too well the significant financial and emotional costs of litigation. Yankwitt LLP staffs contract disputes leanly with not more than two attorneys through summary judgment and at trial. We focus on targeted and streamlined discovery practices, with an emphasis on dispositive motion practice, and a constant eye towards achieving the best possible settlement – when settlement is in the client's best interests.

Given our wealth of contract litigation experience, we are optimally positioned to counsel our clients on when to take a case to verdict and when to settle before trial. In that regard, we frequently pursue alternative dispute resolution mechanisms and have obtained some of our great successes at court-sanctioned settlement conferences, mediations and binding arbitration. If settlement is not possible, however, we will happily take cases to trial and try numerous contract disputes in Westchester, New York City, and New Jersey each year
