Bob also has extensive experience in representing clients in complex commercial litigation cases including, business disputes, real estate disputes, construction contract disputes and insurance policy disputes. He represents both plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of matters including:

  • Actions on behalf of contractors and subcontractors who are not paid in full for work performed on construction sites.
  • Declaratory judgment actions for clients who are named insureds under various types of insurance policies whose claims are denied by their insurance companies.
  • Actions for breach of contract, specific performance and rescission of real estate sales contracts.
  • Actions for injunctive relief.
  • Actions for breach of shareholders agreements, operating agreements and partnership agreements.
  • Work-out litigation for bank clients.

Bob's energy, creativity, determination, experience and skill are assets which he also brings to bear in intellectual property disputes, such as the misappropriation of trade secrets case which resulted in a $750,000 jury verdict in federal court for the manufacturer of a unique aluminum flatbed trailer which had been cloned by the defendant.

Bob's litigation skills combined with his extensive knowledge of legal, operational and environmental issues affecting the supply of public water and sewer service also make him a uniquely qualified solicitor to the Warminster Municipal Authority, a position he has held for more than 25 years.
