In the commercial litigation context, we handle both plaintiff’s-side and defense work. We primarily represent institutional clients, such as corporations, banks, insurance companies, and public entities. Our reputation as a leading commercial litigators has helped us secure a significant number of prominent clients. Some of our well-known clients include the City of Orlando, Orange County, the University of Florida, Costco, FAU, Frontier Airlines, Petco, Firehouse Subs, and more.
At O’Connor & O’Connor, LLC, we understand what it means to form a positive, collaborative partnership with our commercial clients. Our firm’s lineage dates back to the 1920s, and some of our institutional clients have stayed with us in the century that has passed since the beginning. We believe that our deep commitment to clients has earned us this remarkable loyalty.
We represent our clients in commercial litigation that includes, but is not necessarily limited, to the following:
- Contract disputes
- Shareholder derivative cases
- Copyright/patent claims
- Debt collection
- Business Torts
- And more
In handling litigation for our commercial litigation clients, it’s worth noting that we provide our services to clients in courtrooms in Florida and throughout the country. Many of our larger institutional clients require our assistance in other jurisdictions (outside of Florida). We are well-equipped to handle such matters.
We have earned a reputation as willing, able, and skilled commercial litigators, and in fact, we try many more cases than competing firms of a similar size (as well as appeals). Several of our attorneys have hundreds of civil jury trials to their credit, and as a firm, we have argued four cases before the Florida state supreme court since 2012 alone, and have handled many federal cases. These experiences have given us the tools we need to provide truly sophisticated legal advocacy in commercial disputes.
Although we are keen, effective litigators, we are often able to resolve a commercial dispute before the trial begins. Our aggressive and detail-oriented approach to handling a case ensures (in conjunction with our demonstrated experience at trial) gives us a substantial leverage advantage during settlement negotiations — opposing counsel must account for the real possibility that we will try the case to its conclusion. This forces them to put forth a settlement offer that is more favorable to our clients’ interests.

At O’Connor & O’Connor, LLC, our commercial litigation practice comprises a large portion of our total business. As such, over the years, we have gained significant knowledge and insight into the nuances of a complex commercial dispute.
Perhaps most importantly, however, we take the time to form a strong, communicative relationship with our client from the very beginning of our representation. This enables us to identify their goals, preferences, and limitations, and to serve those interests better.
