Significant Experience in Partnership Disputes And Real Estate Partnership Litigation

Trial lawyer Michael Bomstein has extensive experience in resolving partnership disputes, particularly disagreements among partners and investors in real estate development. He has represented limited partners who were defrauded by a developer or managing partner. He has resolved internal disputes over division of profits or properties, sometimes arising from poorly structured real estate partnership agreements. He also is called upon to assert clients' rights in disputes stemming from highly complex business and real estate transactions. Mr. Bomstein uses forensic investigators and his own contract law acumen to sort out the taxes, assets and liabilities, and direct the parties toward a reasonable solution.

Efficient, Cost-Conscious and Results-Oriented

In all commercial disputes, we strive to give our clients an honest, up-front assessment of the probable costs and likely outcomes of various options. Although Mr. Bomstein is an experienced litigator, he views full-fledged litigation as a costly last resort. In most cases, we believe there is a better solution waiting to be brokered by the right commercial litigation lawyer.
