Cohn Lifland represents businesses, financial institutions, private and public pension funds, and private individuals in a broad range of substantial and sophisticated litigation in both federal and state courts as well as in arbitrations and mediations involving commercial disputes in areas including, securities fraud, antitrust, product liability, environmental, Qui Tam, shareholder oppression and derivative litigation, fiduciary, investment, brokerage claims, employment, and ERISA. We are called upon frequently by some of the most prestigious law firms in the United States to assist them with their complex commercial litigation in both state and federal courts in New Jersey.

Our clients include many national and international corporations, local and regional companies, the State of New Jersey (which we represent in both securities and environmental litigation), government agencies, public and private pension funds, as well as individuals from all walks of life, presenting problems requiring a high degree of professional skill and practical counseling. Uniquely, a number of clients have continued to retain our firm for generations.        

We have recovered billions of dollars for our clients and have been involved in numerous leading cases which have established important precedents both statewide and nationwide in courts up to and including the Supreme Court of the United States.

Our commercial litigators have been recognized for their achievements in the profession.  Some have been certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey’s Board on Trial Attorney Certification as civil trial attorneys; are AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell (its highest rating for both professional skill and ethical standards); have been included in the list of New Jersey Super Lawyers, in Business Litigation and Class Action/Mass Torts and in Super Lawyers Corporate Counsel; and have been recognized in Best Lawyers in America in Commercial Litigation.

Attorneys who handle our clients’ complex commercial litigation have been admitted to practice and have represented clients before: all courts in the State of New Jersey; numerous United States District Courts and federal Circuit Courts of Appeals throughout the nation; the United States Court of Federal Claims; and the United States Supreme Court. They have lectured on topics involving commercial litigation for the American Bar Association and the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education, have taught trial advocacy for The National Institute of Trial Advocacy, and have taught trial and appellate skills at a number of law schools.

We initiate our representation in each matter with a thorough examination of the issues involved and work with our clients and counsel to develop a strategy that best meets their legal and business objectives to achieve favorable results in a cost-effective matter, consistent with proper representation.

Above all, we take great pride in the high quality of services rendered and in our steadfast dedication to the diligent representation of the interests of each of our clients.
