Commercial Litigation

Representing companies in litigation around matters that arise in a business context demands intelligence, sharply honed negotiating skills and extensive courtroom experience.

Burden & Hansen, LLC employs all of these in protecting clientsÂ’ commercial interests and minimizing their risks.

Commercial disputes are becoming more difficult to navigate in our ever-evolving and changing world. We counsel companies and management in a variety of matters, including business torts, contract disputes, partnership and joint venture disputes, fraud claims, defamation, and claims of economic loss. Our attorneys are as comfortable in private arbitrations and administrative hearings, as they are before state and federal courts.

Burden & Hansen, LLC represents companies doing business across New York State and Western Pennsylvania. From the onset of a dispute through to resolution, we help our clients make well-informed decisions. Although we are always prepared to take a case to court, we seek first to resolve a matter through pre-trial motions or, where appropriate, mediation. Our goal is to reach a resolution in the most cost-effective manner while maintaining sight of our clientÂ’s objectives. We have considerable experience working with corporate representatives, directors and officers, and in-house counsel, leading to more efficient, cost-effective representation.
