Complex Commercial Litigation2017-08-31T15:52:02+00:00

Our collaborative approach means that no case is too big for us.

We know that there is no playbook for complex commercial litigation. And rarely is there a silver bullet. Our fierce team of litigators has aggregated the best of its varied experiences to develop and implement optimal strategy on a case-by-case basis.

Our commercial litigation experiences range from the public defender’s office, to some of the top law firms in the world, to federal court clerks, all of which we bring to bear on each matter. With our firm’s case load evenly split between federal and state court, we are equally comfortable in either forum.

Being resident in Miami, much of the litigation we handle touches real estate – construction defects, disputes among joint venture partners, between borrowers and lenders, commercial landlords and tenants, or developers and property owners. We also routinely advise and litigate disputes in the realm of “business torts” – ranging from allegations of breaches of fiduciary duty, corporate divorce, broker disputes, professional negligence claims, RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act), breaches of contract and all fraud.

Network

We work with our network of seasoned mortgage industry professionals to assist financial institutions and government sponsored entities, or GSEs, in maximizing their recovery on deficiency balances, and we are one of the few law firms in Florida with deep experience in litigating closing protection letter claims against title insurance companies. MM&H also regularly handles repurchase and indemnity claims against loan originators, professional negligence claims against closing agents and appraisers and fraud claims against builders.
