As experienced litigators and aggressive trial lawyers who honed our skills at major New York City law firms and in the United States Attorney’s Office, we know the significant financial and emotional costs of litigation. We strive to minimize those burdens by always listening to our clients to understand their objectives and goals and determine the most appropriate, cost-effective litigation strategies. Central to our practice is fostering attorney-client relationships founded on honesty, transparency, and open and frequent communication. We always employ smart, lean staffing schemes, and focus on targeted and streamlined discovery practices, with an emphasis on dispositive motion practice.

Given our wealth of contract litigation experience, we are well positioned to counsel our clients on when to take a case to verdict or when to settle before trial. We continually analyze and counsel our clients on how and when to achieve the best possible settlement – when settlement is in the client’s best interests. We frequently pursue alternative dispute resolution mechanisms and have obtained great successes at court-sanctioned settlement conferences, mediations, and binding arbitration. If settlement is not possible, the powerhouse attorneys at Yankwitt LLP stand ready to take cases to trial, which we do on numerous contract disputes throughout New York and New Jersey each year.
