Commercial Litigation

Strong Pipkin represents local, regional and multinational corporations in a variety of commercial matters, including business dissolutions, partnership litigation, shareholder litigation, and disputes among insurers and contract litigation.

Strong Pipkin lawyers have obtained million-dollar judgments and settlements in negotiable instruments litigation, franchise disputes, joint ventures, and real estate development disputes. We have successfully handled defective construction claims, fuel contamination cases and property-invasion torts. We also have extensive experience defending claims involving breach of contract, tortuous interference with contract, deceptive trade practices, and fraud.

Where trial is necessary, our team of partners, associates and legal assistants applies a wealth of litigation experience. Several are AV-rated or are members of the American Board of Trial Advocates. Our attorneys are experienced in complex litigation including class action suits and antitrust litigation in federal court. We have represented companies in complex, multi-party contractual disputes involving thousands of documents and are experienced in electronic discovery issues.

Our litigation experience extends to probate and fiduciary litigation as well. Both institutional and individual clients have been represented in will contests, heirship determinations, creditor claims and breach-of-fiduciary-duty cases.

Reflecting the increasing reliance on arbitration clauses in commercial transactions, we have experience in national, statewide and regional arbitration proceedings, in addition to other forms of alternative dispute resolution. Services include involvement during contract negotiations for inclusion of dispute-avoidance techniques and maximum protection of our clients.
