Commercial litigation is an area of practice where your skills inside the courtroom matter just as much as your legal competence outside of it. Because commercial litigation encompasses virtually every type of dispute that can arise in a business context, a skilled commercial litigator must not only know how to properly prosecute or defense a lawsuit, but must also have a good understanding of the legal and business needs of their clients to permit them to reduce the risks of disputes arising, if not prevent them altogether. This course will provide for an overview of commercial litigation, will demonstrate what litigating a commercial case might look like in practice and will serve as a practical, beginner’s guide to this complex area of law.
Attorney Gerissa Conforti handles nearly every type of dispute between businesses or between businesses and individuals. Her significant commercial litigation experience includes practicing in areas such as premises liability, fraud, civil rights violations, partnership joint venture disputes, breach of fiduciary duties, breach of contract, commercial landlord/tenant disputes and more. With a particular focus on major national retailers as well as local retail entities, Ms. Conforti’s experience includes representing the best interests of both landlords and tenants, and successfully negotiating leases and other agreements on both sides of a deal. Her broad business experience also allows her to serve as General Counsel for clients, acting in an advisory role by assessing the company’s business needs and advising accordingly. While serving in this role, Ms. Conforti is also able to assist clients with a variety of other law-related business needs, such as negotiating leases and drafting venture capital agreements, helping to mitigate the company’s exposure to potential litigation.Contact Gerissa Conforti
