Spotlight On: Commercial Litigation

O'Brien & Ryan, LLP handles a substantial number of commercial litigation claims. Of interest, O'Brien & Ryan, LLP is currently representing a dental practice that was recently sold to a purchasing dental group. This transaction involved an asset purchase agreement, restrictive covenants, leases, a commercial note and other related documents that are involved with this type of business transaction. Shortly after the transaction was finalized, the purchasing group claimed that there were several breaches of the asset purchase agreement and related documents. The existence of an arbitration agreement in the asset purchase agreement prompted the purchasing group to file a demand for arbitration with the American Arbitration Association.

In addition to handling the typical construction litigation claims involving disputes between owners, general contractors, subcontractors, design professionals and sureties, O'Brien & Ryan, LLP is currently embroiled in a construction litigation claim involving successor in interest liability. This type of a claim adds a twist to the typical construction litigation claim and involves a theory of recovery against an acquiring corporation that purchases the assets and liabilities of a corporation that was involved in the underlying construction dispute.

These are just a small sampling of the commercial litigation matters that O'Brien & Ryan, LLP is currently handling. For more information on the commercial litigation department at O'Brien & Ryan, LLP, please contact Anthony P. DeMichele.
