Litigation and Dispute Resolution

D'Agostino, Levine, Landesman & Lederman, LLP has an active civil litigation practice, covering a full range of conflicts and legal issues. We handle all aspects of litigation work, from the initial filing of a summons to the ultimate prosecution or defense of an appeal, and all discovery, motion practice, and trial work in between.

We appear before state and federal courts in New York and alternative dispute resolution tribunals such as the American Arbitration Association. Our real estate and tax attorneys also represent clients in administrative proceedings and investigations before state and New York City regulatory agencies. Past clients include major real estate developers, business owners and cooperative and condominium boards, as well as individuals.

Our litigation practice is diverse, including all types of business torts as well as disputes growing from our core real estate, corporate and taxation practices. Our litigators are active in protecting and enforcing our clients' rights under corporate, partnership and commercial agreements of all types, including disputes involving:

  • Breach of contract
  • Fraud
  • Lender liability
  • Banking
  • Bankruptcy
  • Restrictive covenants
  • Partnership and shareholder rights
  • Mortgage foreclosure claims
  • Intellectual property
  • Taxation
  • Regulation
  • Complex estates

Our attorneys work closely with clients at all stages of litigation to develop cost-effective litigation strategies. We also counsel clients in settlement negotiations and out-of-court dispute resolution (including mediation and arbitration), and develop strategies to help our clients avoid future litigation.
