We are a goal oriented law firm and will work aggressively and proactively to achieve a positive outcome to your breach of contract lawsuit in federal court. At the very beginning of our attorney-client relationship we explore all possible claims and defenses, including statutes of limitations, and lack of federal court jurisdiction.  In certain instances when representing defendants sued in federal court if we conclude that federal court jurisdiction is lacking or debatable we will recommend filing a motion to dismiss a complaint in lien of filing an answer or alternatively moving for abstention.

Also, for certain reasons a federal action can be remanded to state court which may be a more convenient and expedient forum to litigate a breach of contract case.  All of these issues will be thoroughly explored with the client and its general counsel at the outset.

In addition to serving as lead counsel in breach of contract actions, our New Jersey law firm also acts as local counsel to out-of-state lawyers and business clients in federal court proceedings.  As approved electronic case filers, we can effectively manage your paper filings and monitor the Court’s docket throughout the entire case.
