We represent people and businesses in a wide variety of business and commercial disputes and lawsuits. McCabe Rabin attorneys have extensive experience litigating cases involving breaches of contract, enforcement of non-competition agreements, trade secret and intellectual property violations, shareholder and partnership disputes, employment claims, court-appointed receiverships, bankruptcy adversary proceedings, business torts, real estate disputes, and many other business-related legal problems.
If you are searching for a lawyer to handle your business litigation matter, three things set us apart:
First, our partners Ryon McCabe and Adam Rabin are both Board Certified in Business Litigation by the Florida Bar. This is the highest recognition that can be given by the Florida Bar for proficiency and skill within a given area of the law. This certification requires experience, peer review, and testing.
Second, we try cases. Because the vast majority of business litigation cases result in settlement, many experienced business litigators advance well into their careers without having actually tried very many cases before a jury. This is not the case at McCabe Rabin. We have real trial experience that is recognized and respected by our adversaries.
Third, we handle our cases efficiently and economically. We are a small boutique firm. At McCabe Rabin, you are not paying for waterfront views or ridiculous overhead. You are paying for efficient, skilled, business litigators. We regularly face and defeat lawyers from “bigger” law firms who have racked up legal bills far greater than ours.Frequently Asked QuestionsBusiness Litigation
