Commercial / Corporate

Sattiraju & Tharney, LLP has extensive expertise handling commercial matters throughout the United States on behalf of corporate and individual clients. Matt Tharney leads the Firm’s national commercial practice, which includes serving as national coordinating counsel for certain clients. The Firm’s commercial litigation team routinely negotiates business disputes to successful resolution and provides counseling for clients regarding risk-mitigation and litigation avoidance.

When necessary, the Firm is uniquely positioned to litigate and try to conclusion commercial disputes. As lead counsel, Matt Tharney has tried dozens of cases across the country. He also has successfully handled many binding arbitrations (domestic and international) when required under a governing agreement.

Since 2010, Matt Tharney has been certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney, and his decades of experience as a first-chair trial lawyer allows the Firm’s commercial litigation team to focus on core issues that are outcome-determinative, as informed by clients’ stated goals. Sattiraju & Tharney attorneys never fail to consider “real-world” practical concerns and the economic realities of litigation. Such an experienced-based, practical approach results in efficiencies and ensures accurate risk assessments when determining whether to resolve matters in lieu of proceeding to trial.

Sattiraju & Tharney attorneys are barred in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, but the Firm’s attorneys routinely enter appearances pro hac vice in matters all over the United States. Sattiraju & Tharney, LLP’s commercial litigation team has developed an extensive network of local counsel relationships when litigation commences in jurisdictions where the Firm does not have barred attorneys. Having a nimble platform from which to conduct work for the benefit of clients also allows the Firm to bring to bear flexibility and efficiencies rarely achieved within the Big Law context.
