Commercial Litigation

Practice hero image

The attorneys of DiCello Levitt have won billions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for clients engaged in commercial disputes. Our representations include issues ranging from the economic damage caused by the gross negligence of a leading airplane manufacturer to denials of coverage by insurance companies for losses stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. Other examples of our representations include suing, on behalf of the massive numbers of consumers and customers affected, commodities traders for market manipulation and company executives for price fixing. Our complex commercial litigation practice combines our team’s superior courtroom skills with sharp business acumen, as well as an in-depth knowledge of many regulated industries gained through experience on all sides of litigation, including class actions, MDLs, arbitrations, and mediations around the nation. We focus on bet-the company and high stakes litigation, and we are always ready to go to trial in this area of law where many of our competitors prefer to settle.

Our driving objective is victory for our clients, measured not only by monetary compensation but in the broad context of their overarching business goals. We work with you to map out a successful strategy based on a myriad of factors, including your damages, public relations considerations, and long-term profit and loss outlook. Using the same fearless, innovative approach we apply in court, we collaborate with you to envision the best possible results for your business; then, we vigorously pursue your goals.
