Seasoned Trial Attorneys That Steer Your Case To Success
Andrew Crabtree uses his experience as a prosecutor to prepare each case for trial, as opposed to endlessly “litigating” a case with no discernable purpose. When our adversaries realize this, we obtain results others can’t. Simply put – we win cases. And when fighting to the end isn’t in our client’s best interest, we marshal our resources to find a way to settle it on the best possible terms.
We do this by involving our clients in all manner of important decisions affecting their cases. We handle cases from inception through trial and appeal, as well as all forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (mediation and arbitration). Our firm is particularly adept at salvaging cases that other lawyers have mishandled.
Our commercial litigation practice encompasses a broad array of business disputes. We have litigated commercial cases arising under federal and state statutes which regulate our clients’ businesses as well as matters involving general principles of contract law. Our experience with commercial litigation issues enables us to advise clients as well as represent them in partnership and shareholder disputes, breach of contract claims, business torts, unfair competition, employment claims, trade secrets and intellectual property cases.

Appellate law is a highly specialized area requiring extensive procedural knowledge and a grasp of many intricate legal points. An accomplished appellate attorney must be diligent in pursuing arguments that can be extremely complex.
Andrew Crabtree has successfully argued dozens of appeals, including cases before New York’s highest appellate court, the New York Court of Appeals, as well before New York’s 1st and 2nd Departments of the Appellate Division, and those before the United States 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals.
Appeals may require knowledge in any or several of our practice areas. Our team of experienced lawyers often combines forces in pursuit of our client’s goals which remain in constant focus as we evaluate, prepare and litigate matters of critical importance to each client.
