The Crossmore Law Office

Commercial Litigation

The Crossmore Law Office’s commercial practice provides a full range of counseling and litigation services to our clients.

Commercial litigation involves nearly every type of dispute that may arise in a business context. This includes breach of contract, disputes between partners, class actions, business torts (including fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and other matters of corporate governance, tortious interference with contract and/or business relations), defamation, false advertising, anti-trust litigation, patent infringement, and real estate-related claims to name a few. Litigation occurs in a variety of venues, from state and federal courts to private arbitrations or administrative hearings, depending on the specific details of a case. Given the broad nature of commercial litigation, attorneys do not always specialize in every area of business law, which is why seeking appropriate counsel for your case is crucial.

The Crossmore Law Office has established an excellent reputation for efficiently providing high-quality and timely services to clients at a competitive cost. From the onset of a business dispute through to resolution, we help our clients make well-informed decisions and keep their commercial interests at the forefront.

Consumer Litigation

When consumer protection laws and safeguards against business fraud and unfair practices fail, consumer protection litigation may be necessary to recover damages, penalize the offenders, and make you whole.

The consumer litigation practice at The Crossmore Law Office represents plaintiffs who have been significantly injured by corporate misconduct by lenders, debt collectors, or merchants in federal, state, and local courts. These entities frequently sue for debt that is not owed, enforce judgments secured improperly, engage in deceptive collection practices, and sell credit or goods
by fraud and misrepresentation.

Common consumer protection laws include identity theft, contracts, and fraud. Organizations like the Federal Trade Commission and Better Business Bureau are in place to promote and enforce consumer protection laws. However, in the event that a law has been broken, or a consumer has been victimized, contacting an attorney is a critical step towards recovery.

The Crossmore Law Office has significant expertise litigating consumer claims addressing credit repair, service and sales contracts, billing and debt collection, personal loan consolidation, warranties, investor fraud, foreclosure, and more. Our attorneys are experienced in handling matters from the inception of a dispute through the conclusion of the litigation process.
