Commercial Litigation

Welcome to the Whittier Law Group’s. Despite the best efforts of parties to business agreements, disputes occur. In such circumstances it is often the case that arbitration or litigation in court becomes a damaged party’s only recourse for justice and restitution.

Trial Strategy

When courtroom litigation is the best means to obtain justice for a client, The Whittier Law Group (WLG) believes in the old axiom: “The best lawyers strike first and strike hard!”

Accordingly, we will employ all legal means and over 30 years of courtroom experience to vigorously prosecute or defend our client’s interests before U.S. and foreign courts.

Even where arbitration is the chosen forum for settling disputes, WLG will employ decades of experience and professional relationships to represent the client’s interests before the chosen tribunal; to ensure that the arbiters of fact and law will be fully appraised of the meritorious status of our client’s claims.

WLG attorneys always perform critical early analysis to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a client’s case, thereby determining the most effective means of achieving a favorable solution to the legal problem presented; including, whether to pursue the route of litigation or pursue other means to a satisfactory negotiated settlement.

Trial Experience

Our U.S. and U.K. attorneys and barristers take a notable number of cases to trial every year, where we utilize seasoned skills in implementing the tactical and strategic measures that determine the success or failure of a case.

Our firm specializes in obtaining creditor judgments for clients seeking to enforce foreign judgments obtained in other states or outside the U.S., or U.K. altogether. Increasingly, unscrupulous businesspeople are taking advantage of less stringent credit checks being conducted by business partners in Europe and Asia. These bad actors are also benefitting from lax enforcement of money judgments in many jurisdictions around the world.

International companies that may appear legitimate (but are in fact not) are obtaining goods and services on forward payment or credit terms from U.S. firms and then fail to pay. Due to the status of the United States and particularly New York as a financial center, these companies often hold substantial assets in the U.S. The WLG can utilize its considerable legal and investigative facilities to track and identify the location of these debtor companies’ U.S. assets, and then proceed to enforce our clients’ judgments against those assets. We also represent clients in similar circumstances in courts and arbitration proceedings in the United Kingdom.

Our global network of attorneys allows the Whittier Law Group to appear, prosecute or defend our clients’ cases on virtually every continent of the globe. And while our attorneys have decades of experience before judge, jury or arbitration panel, the fact is that the overwhelming majority of litigation is resolved either through motion practice and/or settlement. It is our trial preparation and proactive discovery that helps us file more effective motions and obtain more favorable settlements on behalf of our clients.

Legal Advisory Services

Our litigation department is regularly required to advise public and private companies and their boards of directors in a variety of areas ranging from equity control disputes, to corporate housekeeping issues, to shareholder derivative and direct actions. Our attorneys have conducted internal investigations of both public and private entities, including retentions by independent board members of publicly held companies.
