Commercial Litigation

Sweeney & Sheehan has extensive experience in a wide range of commercial litigation matters, including actions sounding in breach of contract, the Uniform Commercial Code and declaratory Judgement.

A specialty within our commercial practice is with respect to reviewing contract, lease, and franchise agreements in the context of litigation and providing opinions regarding the enforceability of pertinent provisions. Our experience enforcing defense and indemnification agreements has resulted in clients regularly obtaining full indemnification and recovery of defense fees and costs.

When commercial issues arise, including contract disputes, Sweeney & Sheehan recognizes the importance of business relationships and is experienced in counseling clients to navigate situations where litigation, contracts, and business relationships intersect. In addition, we provide guidance on business strategy and advice on the effect of contractual terms and interpretation to help clients resolve disputes without litigation. We draft and review contract language to avoid future litigation or to ensure the client is protected in the event future litigation arises.

We are proactive in keeping our clients advised every step of the way.  Commercial litigation often involves voluminous amounts of documents along with a component of eDiscovery.  We work with the latest technology, cutting costs for our clients.  In addition, we work with skilled forensic electronic discovery experts many times easily finding the needle in the haystack needed for an expeditious resolution.

Whether navigating the negotiating table or fighting zealously at trial, our team is ready to provide you with the service you expect and most favorable outcome.
