Practice Areas

Collections for Creditors

We represent businesses that are owed money by consumers or other businesses. From the demand letter to repossession or replevin recovery to final resolution, we provide sound advice and zealous representation.

Business and Commercial Litigation

We handle cases involving contract disputes, tortious interference, racketeering, fraud, Rhode Island and federal claims, and breaches of fiduciary duty. If you believe that your business has been damaged by another, one of our business and commercial litigation lawyers can assess your case.


We assist insurance companies in the recovery of subrogation funds. If you are an insurance provider, and you need to track down the party or parties responsible for an injury for which you have already paid, we can help you find that business or individual.

Product Liability Defense

We represent designers and manufacturers involved in lawsuits concerning their products. If settlement is not possible, we are willing to try the case if we believe it is in our client's best interest.

Personal Injury Defense

We defend small and medium-sized businesses against personal injury claims involving car accidents, dog attacks, slip and falls, and other personal injury matters.

Toxic Tort-/-Asbestos Defense

By now, many of the big producers of asbestos have paid their share of settlement and award money. The ones that remain, however, are still targets. Although we defend companies in many types of toxic tort cases, many of our cases still focus on asbestos products.

Discrimination and Harassment

When our clients are sued by former employees, we are often asked to handle the litigation. Businesses know from experience that they can rely on our judgment. We have represented many employers who find themselves in these circumstances.

Bankruptcy Law

We assist creditors whose debtors have gone into receivership or declared bankruptcy. Even if your debtor is in bankruptcy court, you may still be able to collect what you are owed. Contact us to find out more.

Alternative Dispute Resolution

Our attorneys offer experienced guidance to businesses, manufacturers, creditors and other clients in resolving complex disputes through methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), such as mediation or arbitration. We have assisted countless clients in obtaining expedited resolution through ADR.

Our construction law attorneys have experience representing both Rhode Island and out of state subcontractors, suppliers and vendors in collecting against property owners, general contractors and other subcontractors. Our attorneys have handled various matters relating to the construction field including litigation of general contract disputes, mechanics' lien claims, and payment and performance bond claims.
