Commercial & IP Litigation

At Thompson LLP, we represent plaintiffs and defendants throughout New York City and nationally in a range of commercial matters. Our commercial and intellectual property litigation counsel run a nimble, responsive team.

Commercial Litigation

Disputes arise in all types of contexts, from copyrights, trade secrets and other intellectual property matters to Internet law and media. Our attorneys provide strategic, efficient and assertive counsel and representation for cases involving:

  1. Corporate disputes and derivative actions.
  2. Copyright and trademark infringement.
  3. Patent litigation.
  4. Breach of contract and enforcement.
  5. Vendor disputes.
  6. Developer and independent contractor disputes.
  7. Disputes involving manufacturers and distributors.
  8. International matters.
  9. Employment disputes.

Alternative Dispute Resolution / Arbitration And Mediation

Many cases can be resolved through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, including arbitration and mediation. When it works, ADR can be an efficient approach that allows for more creative solutions than litigation. Our lawyers have a wealth of experience negotiating favorable resolutions for our corporate clients outside the courtroom.

Members of our staff include managing partner Benjamin S. Thompson (holds teaching positions in negotiation and dispute resolutions at top tier law schools), as well as Giulio Zanolla (a panel member of the American Arbitration Association). When cases cannot be resolved in this manner, we are prepared to represent our clients’ interests aggressively and effectively in the courtroom.
