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
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.
We have handled both typical and complex commercial
disputes in the following areas:
