Litigation

Litigation involves legal issues that require confident litigators who are well versed in the different areas of law and possess the uncanny ability to zealously represent all of their clients. With years of experience, the attorneys at Bashian & Papantoniou understand that the escalation of a dispute into litigation is an important decision that may have enormous effects on the clients that we represent. Therefore, our approach includes a detailed assessment of each of our client’s needs and concerns, client participation in the planning and decision making, thorough case preparation, effective use of all available resources and consideration of alternative dispute resolution, and even arbitration or mediation.   We are tactical in our approach and uncanny in our zealous representation of our clients in and out of the courtroom.   Our representation is always focused on end results.  We are constantly conducting self review to ensure that our approach meets the client’s objective.   Our firm also takes great pride in providing cost effective representation that makes sense from a business perspective.  However, we are always ready to deploy our resources to gain the necessary resources on our adversaries.

To provide the most effective representation for our clients, our firm will routinely draw upon the skills of our other practice groups at the firm.  For example, when representing a shareholder who is alleging a breach of an operating agreement, the litigation department at Bashian & Papantoniou is able to feed off the knowledge and expertise of our corporate attorneys, and their work in the negotiation, drafting and interpretation of contractual language that may be outcome determinate to the issues at hand.

Our attorneys regularly appear in New York state, local and federal courts, and before administrative tribunals. We are also licensed to represent clients in New Jersey state courts.  We have experience in representing clients before the American Arbitration Association, JAMS and local dispute resolution centers. Our clients include corporations, smaller private companies and individuals.  However, no matter the size every client that we represent receives the same attention and detail.   We strive to make ourselves available and connect with the needs of our clients.
