Commercial Litigation

While our traditional litigation base is centered on plaintiffs' personal injury trial work, Corboy & Demetrio also handles commercial litigation cases on a contingency basis. Our practice includes litigation in the area of  breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, stockholder disputes and securities litigation.

Following is a representative sample of the types of cases we have handled.
