Civil & Commercial Litigation

Henderson, Caverly & Pum LLP represents clients in a wide variety of civil and commercial litigation contexts. Led by Kristen Caverly with Maria Pum and Lisa Roper, the Civil & Commercial Litigation Practice Group have represented Fortune 100 companies in breach of contract actions, financial institutions in the enforcement of creditors’ remedies, publicly held corporations in unfair trade practice litigation, private interests in real property disputes, individuals and employers in wrongful termination cases, and many other types of clients in a host of other disputes and proceedings.

In addition to its broad range of experience, what sets the Civil and Commercial Litigation Group at Henderson, Caverly & Pum LLP apart from litigation practices at other law firms is the amount of actual trial experience—including jury trial experience—that its attorneys have had. While many disputes can and should be settled through diligence and negotiation, it is nevertheless a reality of litigation that sometimes a client will need to present his, her or its case in court. Having counsel that is willing and able to take a dispute to trial means that the client will be in a better position to prevail over his, her or its adversary, perhaps without the need to go to trial.

Among the litigation matters that the Group has handled are the following:

  • Breach of Contract
  • Licensing Disputes
  • Enforcement of Loan Documentation
  • Appointment of Receivers
  • Real Property Disputes
  • Landlord/Tenant Disputes
  • Unfair Business Practices
  • Lender Liability Claims
  • Trademark Disputes
  • Collection Actions
  • Judicial Foreclosure
  • Wrongful Termination
  • Intellectual Property

If you have the misfortune of finding yourself in need of litigation counsel to either enforce your rights or defend yourself in an action someone has brought against you, Henderson, Caverly & Pum LLP has the knowledge, creativity and experience to guide you through the adversarial process.
