Commercial Litigation, Dispute Resolution & International Arbitration

Rooney Nimmo has years of experience in commercial litigation and trial practice, which allows us to help clients assess their claims and goals and develop appropriate litigation strategies.

In the US:

  • We have advised on a range of commercial disputes in both federal and state courts as well as in alternative dispute resolution venues and proceedings, including the SEC, DoJ, AAA, JAMS, FINRA, and NYSE arbitrations.
  • We have litigated a wide variety of commercial matters including accounting fraud, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (“RICO”) conspiracy, and contract disputes.
  • We have handled business disputes and matters related to employment, securities, construction, real estate, mergers and acquisitions, shareholder, insurance defense, professional sports, white-collar crime, and professional liability matters.

As experienced negotiators and litigators, we strive to ensure favorable results for our clients, whether through settlement negotiations or at trial. We understand the importance of managing risk and cost and minimizing disruption to your business. Therefore, while maintaining momentum in contentious matters, we also counsel clients on litigation-avoidance measures and on approaches that either obviate or bring a swift resolution to litigation wherever possible.

Judgment enforcement and asset recovery

Unfortunately, even after a decision has been made, some judgment debtors are unwilling to pay either in full or in installments. Our litigators are also well versed in this “Second Act” of litigation. Using the post-judgment discovery process and all other available apparatuses of the state and federal courts, our firm has relentlessly pursued assets of both corporate and individual judgment debtors.
