Commercial Litigation

Loeffler Thomas, P.C. provides representation in the areas of commercial litigation and business related disputes.

LT represents some of the largest corporations in the United States in complex commercial litigation relating to contracts, business torts, fraud, bankruptcy, construction, franchise disputes, securities litigation, and trade secrets. LT’s attorneys regularly defend class-action litigation and have enjoyed great success defeating attempts to have class actions certified. Attorneys in the commercial litigation practice have substantial experience in whistle-blower actions throughout the United Sates and have defended medical centers and other companies in civil RICO and federal fraud litigation.

LT also represents former directors and officers of failed banks in connection with FDIC demand letters, FDIC threats of civil money penalties and removals against former directs and officers, and in filed FDIC litigation. LT has participated in several successful mediations with the FDIC, and is currently defending numerous director and officer groups against FDIC allegations.

When approaching adjudications, LT focuses on developing and implementing a consistent strategy with a clear objective and result, rather than mere process and procedure. Ordinarily, before undertaking a litigation project (as either a plaintiff or defendant), LT’s attorneys map out the projected activity and schedule for litigation, budget each of the necessary tasks, and work with the client to develop a strategic approach consistent with the clients economic needs, risk profile, and selection of forums and remedies.

Our commercial litigation attorneys have the administrative, arbitration, mediation, and trial experience needed to do the job and have successfully briefed and argued numerous pretrial motions for dismissal and summary judgment, as well as appeals before state and federal courts.

Some of the areas they have assisted clients in include:

  • Banking, including financial institution fidelity bond litigation
  • Breach of contract
  • Commercial fraud
  • Contract disputes, including construction and mechanics lien litigation
  • Insurance recovery
  • Interference with commercial opportunities
  • Misrepresentation
