Experienced Commercial Litigation Lawyers

In today’s business climate, companies — and their officers and directors — face a variety of risks when a dispute arises: the threat of civil litigation, the prospect of criminal or civil investigations and enforcement by regulators, as well as media and public scrutiny. KDV’s attorneys serve as problem solvers for our clients when such high stakes challenges arise.

At KDV, our commercial litigation lawyers offer creative, timely and strategic counsel to help our business clients resolve complex legal challenges and disputes. We collaborate with clients to develop litigation strategies and budgets using early case assessments and then implement our plans with efficiency.  Our attorneys are proactive, pragmatic and results-oriented. We act in the best interests of our clients to achieve favorable results whether at trial, through settlement, or alternative dispute resolution. 

Our legal team regularly represents private businesses, public companies, insurance carriers, public entities, and municipalities in wide array of commercial disputes, including:  

  • Class and Collective Actions. Class and collective actions involve complex legal and factual issues requiring a team of experienced attorneys.  The lawyers at our firm are well positioned to handle these high-risk, high stakes cases. We defend clients in a diverse range of class action and collective action cases, including cases that involve discrimination, data breaches, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

Employment disputes can expose businesses and other organizations to costly litigation.  We counsel and represent businesses, insurance carriers and their insureds in all aspects of employment practices liability defense litigation, from employment discrimination to sexual harassment to wrongful discharge.

  • Securities / Broker-Dealers. KDV attorneys defend individuals, corporate officers, registered representatives and member firms in a broad range of enforcement investigations and proceedings before securities regulators.  Our attorneys represent clients at each stage of the SEC enforcement proceedings and closely monitor and track critical legal developments that may impact our clients’ matters.
  • Shareholder and Partnership Disputes. Conflicts between shareholders or business partners have the potential to destroy a company.  Our lawyers have deep experience litigating and arbitrating a diverse range of shareholder and partnership disputes.  When these types of disputes surface, we develop legal strategies aimed at protecting and advancing our clients’ legal rights and interests.
  • Wage and Hour. Employers of all sizes and shapes are at risk for wage and hour claims brought under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and its state counterparts.  The attorneys at KDV have decades of collective experience advising and defending employers who find themselves the target of wage and hour investigations and enforcement proceedings initiated by the U.S. Department of Labor and state labor departments.  We also defend employers against wage and hour lawsuits filed by their employees in state and federal court.
