Business/Commercial

We represent plaintiffs and defendants in commercial litigation across multiple industries including banking, construction, financial services, insurance, brokerage, and retail, including FINRA and AAA arbitrations. Our team of commercial litigators delivers world-class services at competitive rates.

Casualty

We serve as panel counsel for many insurance carriers which allows us to ramp up quickly and vigorously defend our clients against litigation involving claims of personal injury and wrongful death in premises cases, transportation claims, workplace accidents, Dram Shop matters and other types of claims.

Community & Homeowner's Association Law

Community Associations can mitigate risk in covenant and rule enforcement with proactive counsel. Coffey Modica O’Meara Capowski’s litigation team can represent your Community Association in claims involving breach of contract, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and other business torts.

Construction & Construction Defect Litigation

We represent owners, general contractors and trade subcontractors against claims resulting from construction site accidents, design and construction defects, delay and liquidated damages claims and negligence. Our attorneys also serve as direct outside counsel for various construction trade clients to review and negotiate contracts, advise on risk mitigation and best practices, and if need be, defend against claims and suits.

A significant portion of our construction practice involves defending New York Labor Law matters. We are especially experienced at handling the associated challenges that these strict liability statutes present. Our 24/7 Emergency Response Team is on-site immediately following a construction accident to handle an in-depth investigation to determine if the accident or claim falls under the New York Labor Law statutes and to gather the necessary information that will inform the firm’s strategy.

We fiercely defend our clients’ interests. We litigate matters from inception through trial, and if necessary, appeals. Our team of attorneys advises on and determines all avenues of risk transfer for indemnity that minimizes indemnity and insurance loss run exposure.

Cyber, Technology, & Media Litigation

As concerns about cybersecurity, data protection, and privacy expand at the same pace as technology innovation, Coffey Modica O’Meara Capowski remain committed to helping clients understand and mitigate risks to ensure that their business is responsive, compliant, and protected. Our team leverages comprehensive knowledge of matters pertaining to cybersecurity breaches, data loss response, disputes and litigation alleging data breaches or privacy law violations, regulatory investigations and enforcement actions, and cyber insurance.

Our cross-sector approach covers construction, emerging technologies, health care, financial services, retail, communications, manufacturing, and transportation.

Director & Officers

Whether its private or publicly traded companies, litigation against directors and officers, or “D&O”, requires a unique skillset that leverages expertise in a full range of business operations. We have wide-ranging trial experience in all types of litigation involving the duties and responsibilities of directors and officers, including derivative suits, creditor or trustee claims in bankruptcy, shareholder demand letters, and special committee investigations, and we apply that experience in both state and federal court.

Employment Law

We provide defense to workplace disputes that range from compliance issues with local, state, and federal employment laws to workplace operations that resulted in litigation. Our team of attorneys begins with strong negotiation services where disputes can be resolved before trial. We represent employers in cases involving discrimination, harassment, internal investigation, regulatory compliance, First Amendment issues, restrictive covenant, trade secrets, and wage and hour disputes. We also advise employers outside the litigation context on best practices and liability avoidance.

Medical Malpractice Law

Professional negligence in medical malpractice matters includes complex medical issues and large damage exposure. Coffey Modica O’ Meara Capowski attorneys consult with clients on risk exposure issues and pre-litigation strategies. Our medical malpractice team includes experienced trial counsel. In addition, we have extensive experience in medical malpractice appeals. Our lawyers have a long history of success in efficiently defending matters against hospitals, urgent care centers, physicians, and allied health professionals.
