Litigation and Dispute Resolution-
Lawyers have cases. Clients have problems that need to be solved.
When you ask, "Do I have a case? ", at the Steinberg Law Offices our answer is always the same: the Firm may have a case; you have a problem that needs to be solved. Similarly, if you are concerned about defending your position against another's claim, our job is to help you to prepare for litigation and to evaluate whether a prolonged trial might be avoided. Our common goal is to find a cost-effective, practical solution to your problem.
Solutions take many forms: negotiation, litigation, mediation, arbitration--Our job is to find the solution that best fits your unique needs and concerns.
We believe in preparing every case as if we will have to litigate
it before a jury. But being thoroughly prepared does not mean
overworking a case. It means knowing what information is important,
how to find it, and how to present it persuasively.
At the Steinberg Law Offices, we
handle litigation of a complexity that many find surprising for
so small a firm. We have successfully argued cases before the
State and Federal Courts, many of which have involved General
and Commercial Litigation, including: partnership and shareholder disputes, business dissolution proceedings, antitrust class actions, business torts, breach of contract actions and intellectual property cases. A substantial part of our litigation practice is Employment Litigation. We represent plaintiffs and defendants in cases involving claims of race, sex, age and disability discrimination and sexual harassment.
In the area of Negligence and Personal Injury Litigation,
our seasoned litigators have handled a broad range of matters,
including medical malpractice, premises liability, automobile
negligence, insurance coverage and worker's compensation cases.
Drawing on their years of experience in those matters, our attorneys are able to gather and evaluate information efficiently and economically
and guide our clients through every phase of the litigation process.
Counseling and Representation-
You have plans. Your business deal is taking shape. Your discussions with others have progressed. Now it's time to iron out the details.
It sounds simple, but with today's increasing legal requirements, implementing plans can be complicated.
As your legal needs increase, so should the confidence that you
have in your law firm.
At the Steinberg Law Offices, we can
help you to set your plans in motion. Whether you require review
of a written agreement, representation in negotiations, assistance
with a regulatory matter, business formation or drafting of transactional documents, we can provide you with prompt and individualized services to address your needs.
We have the knowledge, experience and resources to help you
to evaluate options, overcome legal obstacles and make good decisions-all to achieve your business and personal goals. At the Steinberg Law Offices, our clients benefit from our background and resources. Relying on our combined public and private sector experience, we can address our clients' needs in such unique areas of practice as Aviation and Sports and Entertainment law.
In the areas of Business Counseling and Finance, we can
provide services in transactions such as: incorporations, partnerships, creation and organization of not-for-profit entities and limited
liability companies, joint ventures and other business entities,
as well as commercial loans, notes and other financing transactions. Our attorneys also have experience in Commercial Real Estate
matters involving leases, mortgages, lease-purchase arrangements
and other transactions, as well as land use, zoning and permitting
matters in connection with commercial economic development projects and residential properties.
A significant aspect of our practice is our work in the area
of Employment Law. We often represent executives and individuals in employment disputes involving Fortune 500 companies. Many of
these matters have been resolved through our successful negotiation of separation agreements that provided for substantial compensation
packages. We also counsel individual clients on such emerging
issues as "non-compete" agreements and regularly provide
advice to corporations and other business entities in regard to
employment issues. We have also prepared written policies, guidelines and handbooks on such matters for our clients.
Our attorneys' experience in Aviation Law spans more than
25 years. Our founding attorney, himself a licensed pilot, has
successfully defended individual pilots in licensing proceedings
before the Federal Aviation Administration and the National Transportation Safety Board. Another of our attorneys represented the New Jersey
Division of Aeronautics early in her career. We represent airport
owners in zoning disputes and general business matters and routinely counsel individuals and businesses in this area of the law.
Our practice in Sports and Entertainment Law includes
representation of two NCAA Division I college athletic conferences. Our lead attorney in this area is a former Senior Vice President
and General Counsel of the New Jersey Sports and Exposition Authority, the entity that owns and operates Giants Stadium, the Continental
Airlines Arena, the Meadowlands and Monmouth Park Racetracks and
convention centers in Atlantic City and Wildwood, New Jersey,
with experience in a wide range of sports-related contractual
matters. These include the drafting and negotiation of leases
and license agreements with the five professional sports franchises that are based at the Meadowlands Sports Complex, as well as contracts
with advertisers, broadcasters, concessionaires and promoters
of special events such as concerts, college athletic events and
Women's World Cup Soccer.
As local, state and national laws continue to change and judicial
decisions evolve, a sophisticated response is required. At the
Steinberg Law Offices, we are prepared
to provide legal advice and representation that advances your
interests and assists you in realizing your goals and aspirations.
