When disputes arise or the threat of litigation looms, the seasoned litigators of Carella Byrne provide exceptional advocacy grounded in holistic strategies designed to achieve each client’s overall business, financial, and personal goals. Our New Jersey and New York trial attorneys are consummate problem solvers who develop and implement litigation approaches tailored to achieve the optimal outcome as efficiently and expeditiously as possible.

Complex and General Litigation

Carella Byrne’s litigation capabilities are grounded in the deep talent and broad experience of trial attorneys who have successfully advanced and defended our clients’ interests in jurisdictions and forums across the country and around the globe. The firm’s partners are all experienced trial attorneys, including former Federal and State prosecutors, trial and transactional lawyers, scientists and engineers.

Our litigators are respected by colleagues, adversaries, and courts alike. They leverage their considerable advocacy skills and diverse backgrounds to provide the representation that has earned the firm a reputation as one of the premier New Jersey firms for general and complex litigation. We possess a lengthy track record of success and the trust of clients from coast to coast. State and Federal courts regularly appoint Carella Byrne’s litigators as trustees, fiscal agents, class counsel, and receivers in high-profile, complex proceedings.

Practical Counsel and Zealous Advocacy

We understand that thoroughness, preparation, and a comprehensive understanding of the applicable facts and law in a dispute are indispensable to achieving a successful result, whether in the courtroom or at the negotiating table. But we also know that litigation does not take place in a vacuum; that it can reverberate and impact concerns far beyond the subject matter at hand.

That is why we spend as much time as needed to understand each client’s concerns and objectives, their business imperatives or personal motivations. By taking a big picture view of every case, we can deliver a complete assessment and evaluate the true costs, risks, and benefits of all available options. While we always look for negotiated resolutions and consider alternative dispute resolution forums when they offer advantages to our clients, our lawyers stand ready to champion our clients’ positions before judges, juries, or regulatory bodies.
