When litigation arises, Wasser & Russ attorneys team up with our clients as tenacious allies, bold advocates and aggressive champions of their rights.


We forcefully prosecute and defend claims in New York and across the United States in all business fields, including, to name a just a few: insurance controversies, both private and regulatory; contract and other commercial disputes; estate, gift and inheritance litigation; real estate disputes, commercial leasing proceedings, unfair competition and restrictive covenant claims; commercial collection and enforcement proceedings; business fraud matters; partnership, shareholder and other internal business relationship disputes; business employment matters; corporate neglect, waste and breach of fiduciary duty issues; and disputes relating to fine art and collectibles.

We vigorously pursue our clients’ rights at all stages of litigation from initial filings through discovery, trial and appeal. We additionally utilize all forms of alternative dispute resolution including mediation and arbitration.


We firmly believe that litigation occurring outside of New York should follow the same template of assertive and agile advocacy which we utilize to produce cost-effective results for our clients in New York. Firm lawyers accomplish results in multi-district litigation throughout the United States by closely supervising, directing and partnering with local litigation counsel in litigation management and cost-saving techniques. Wasser & Russ attorneys save business clients valuable time and resources by assuming many of our client’s litigation management duties over local counsel at our streamlined fee structure.

The experienced attorneys at Wasser & Russ offer corporate clients and general counsel comprehensive services, strategic advice and counsel to ensure that business matters do not get mired in complex State or Federal litigation. Wasser & Russ clients enjoy the fact that we bring to the table the skill to address the most pressing and sensitive litigation issues with the highest level of qualitywithin a streamlined fee structure.
