Business Law & Transactions

The Business Law practice at O’Connell and Aronowitz is extensive and comprehensive, counseling clients in all areas of their business affairs and handling significant commercial real estate transactions.  Our services encompass strategies and planning, transactions and dispute resolution. We help clients avoid problems, counsel them on solving those that arise and resolve disputes if necessary.  We provide these services with one unifying theme: to help our clients meet their business goals.  We apply our significant experience toward that end. We represent closely-held and family run businesses, start-up ventures, middle market companies and major enterprises. We advise clients regarding business formation strategies, negotiating transactions, arranging financing, and resolving business disputes. 

Commercial Dispute Resolution

The Commercial Litigation attorneys at O’Connell and Aronowitz are well versed in all aspects of dispute resolution, including litigation, arbitration and mediation. We represent business and commercial real estate clients in Federal and State courts, arbitration and mediation.  We pursue legal actions against private parties and challenge federal, state and local governmental determinations in administrative proceedings and in court.  Our litigators are experienced at the trial and appellate level, in both Federal and State courts and have also represented clients in administrative, arbitration and mediation proceedings. In the business domain, we routinely handle disputes concerning entity formation and dissolution, breach of contract, enforceability of partnership, shareholder and employment agreements – including restrictive covenants, tax issues, financial transactions, federal and state taxation, intellectual property, and labor and other regulatory issues. Our experience in commercial real estate disputes is equally broad, encompassing purchase and sale transactions, lending transactions – mortgage foreclosures, secured transactions and guarantees, breach of real estate contracts and leases, enforcement of restrictive covenants, construction issues, brokerage disputes, title issues, as well as bringing and defending real property tax challenges. 

Our commercial real estate services are as comprehensive as our business counseling services.

At O’Connell and Aronowitz, we recognize that it is essential for new and established entities to navigate the complex legal and business landscapes. We help clients avoid problems, design solutions to those that arise, and resolve disputes, whether through litigation, arbitration or mediation. We leverage our long-standing relationships with the legal community, lenders and other financiers, as well as state and local agencies to help our clients achieve their business objectives.
