Commercial Litigation

Aggressive, successful, experienced, innovative trial lawyers and litigators comprise the Commercial Litigation Practice at the Jacobs Law Group. We have successfully tried jury, non-jury and arbitration matters in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and elsewhere in the US. We have earned a winning reputation for our creative and cost effective litigation methods, and when applicable, our efficient Alternative Dispute Resolution methods.

While it is true that we are aggressive and relentless in court we never lose focus of our true, number one priority. The client’s objectives are always foremost in our minds. Sometimes the goal is only to win the suit outright, but sometimes winning is only one aspect of the client’s greater interest. Whatever the client’s ultimate goal we bring our superior advocacy skills, business acumen and ability to see the entire “battlefield” to the fight. We have won multi-million dollar victories for our clients in court and obtained multi-million dollar settlements out of court.

The issues we handle are quite diverse, both in terms of the clients we counsel and the matters that we take on. We feel that the best planning yields the best results and we approach each case with a well-thought out and reasoned line of attack. Our comprehensive techniques apply to all stages of a matter. Whether a lawsuit is routine in nature or characterized by extreme complexity we apply the same high degree of focus and commitment to every case.

Surprisingly, to some clients who have had unhappy litigation experiences with other law firms, we will even counsel against litigation if we feel that it cannot be conducted in a cost effective manner or if the chance of success is so limited as to not be feasible. We strive to give our clients the best advice consistent with their long-term interests.

Our extensive background in commercial matters enables us to better understand that litigation is not only a theoretical legal problem but also a true business dilemma. We recognize the potential ill effects that litigation can have on a client’s business and we are careful to counsel our clients to create solutions that serve their long-term goals.

Sometimes the most appropriate solution to a client’s problem is to not rush into court. Sometimes, perhaps due to the sensitive or technical nature of the issues or the likely consequences of public litigation, we may advise pursuing alternative methods. Through our use of Alternative Dispute Resolution, including arbitration and mediation, we maximize the options available to our clients. In fact our lawyers are so experienced that we have been selected by the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas to act as mediators in the Philadelphia Commerce Court Program.

By working closely with our clients and putting them first, we are able to effectively resolve their matters.
